I don’t think anything in your post was “obvious”, but that’s neither here nor there.

I know it’s too early to tell, but have there been a lot of major projects announced yet for RMC for next year? Or do you think we can see them spending time on TT and SV during the off-season.

2019 RMC has White Cyclone which they have been working on but it's SV size project with 5500+ ft track on the original. They also have Robinhood at Walibi Holland about 3400ft original length.. There are no real hints,survey markers, etc.. of US conversions happening in 2019. RMC also has the Raptors, which I think Sf will buy at least 2.

The meteorologists aren't doing CP any favors this year, but it's worked out well for me. I went yesterday even though they were predicting thunderstorms throughout most of the day. As a result, park was not too busy. Hopped into SV line around 10:55pm since it was posting a 60 minute wait, was in my car driving home by 11:30. Another fantastic night ride.

Not even if they moved the decimal point to the left.

Someone on ebay recently moved the decimal to the right. Of course that was before they announced they would start selling them in the park.

Yesterday with the off and on rain, SV went to one train operation. It was not trimmed and it was very easy to notice the faster speed in the 2nd half. I must say it was glorious, made it more intense in the best of ways.

Weird. I rode at the end of the night, and didn't even notice the trim even with two train ops.

Or perhaps it's all in your head lol.

I have definitely ridden SV enough times to know when it's getting trimmed or not. Sometimes going on end of night rides myself (notably last ride of night) there is no trim.

Yeah, they don't trim it at night most of the time. Hey, what's that event Steel Vengeance is closing for?

Big Bash. It’s an appreciation event for employees. Not guests.

Why did they not say anything about this on twitter?

Both Tony and Cedar Point tweeted about it.


SV ruins all other rides.

Okay, I meant to say why they didn't tweet more specifically what kind of event it was.

Because it has to do with employees and not the GP

Oh yeah, its that time of the year to start sucking up to employees, trying to get them to hang on the rest of the regular season and fall season.

Big Bash has happened around early to mid August for decades. It's the last major employee fun night of the season before many employees head back to college.

Exactly. Just like a company picnic for many businesses, Big Bash has never been a “suck up” event.

Big Bash 2018 was great! Many Steel Vengeance rides, free food, a couple of T-shirts and gift cards for more free food. It was worth staying up for!
