ladies and gentlemen, due to an increase in line jumping, people caught cutting in line will no longer be ejected from the park. u will be ejected from the ride

Yeah, I think everyone at CoasterMania this past Friday was disappointed when they found out that WT was closed. I was really looking forward to this ride but fortunately I only live 2 hours from CP whereas some people traveled pretty far for CM. That had to be more disappointing for them.

SKOS, not as pathetic as a John Allen junior! LOL. Billy, how long did you think about this thread's title?

I don't know about you guys, but WT was open for our group! LOL....a video explaining this will eventually be available, right Kara? :) Seriously though, I'm about to make the trek to Claif only to find my beloved X sitting there, staring down at me with no love to give....*sniff*

I went to PKD last summer, and hypersonic closed after about 1 hour of running. I guess that it did that a lot, though.

Last year I went to Six Flags Great America for my first trip of the 2001 season for Advocate Health Day. Raging Bull was down all day, Deja Vu wasn't built it was still missing a tower and a loop and V2 was still underconstruction. I still managed to make it a fun day though.

And this year I went to Indiana Beach Memorial Day weekend hoping for LoCoSuMo to be opened, saw it test once in the morning but it got stuck going up the triple up so I knew I wouldn't be riding it that day.

yeah, bummed about X, but happy to hear Arrow Guy will be there in Cali. to ride Flashback - even if only once (hey, stop laughing, it's one of those I've missed more than once, along with Blackbeard's Treasure Train)...I wasn't BORN an enthusiast ya know, and missed out on some I could've gotten....motto is: ride 'em while you can....

But then again, I like this title even better!

Same situation here. Leaving on Saturday for our flight to Cali. Why couldn't X have broken down on June 20th, the day after we leave CC. Oh, well. Does anyone think we'll be able to get at least one ride on it during the 4 days we are there? I sure hope so!

It probably took him all night to think of that title. And then finally he thought of it. One of his best ideas yet so he had to use it. LOL

Let's see...

- SOB during URC II, June 2000

- WT during CM '02

But ironically, SFGAM's Deja Vu was wrestled back into operation during my CPlaya 100 visit (6/6) just long enough for me to ride.

Yes...

1) Kraken shut down at Sea World. Lucky for us, we found out about the "second day of fun free" promotion they were running and returned four days later when it was running

2) Kumba shut down at BGT. However, it did open later in the day (around 3:00pm)

3) Thunderbolt at Kennywood. It did open around 5:00pm for about an hour but was then down again.

4) Superman:Ride of Steel at SFA. Down the entire day. Had to wait until this year to finally ride it.

Um, B&R: The Chiller the first year that it was open. I went early in the season and it wasn't open, I was so disappointed...but I got over it...until a year later I went and it was closed again, then again last year only to still see it closed. Maybe I will get lucky and it will be open this year, but I am not counting my chickens quite yet.

Happy Coastering!

The one I'll always remember as long as I live: 1983, driving from Ann Arbor, MI, to Kings Island *just* to ride The Bat, only to find it closed for good.

Last year when I went to SFWOA for my first time, Superman: Ultimate Escape was closed thus sealing my fate to never be able to ride an impulse last year even though I visited two parks with them.

Moosh: How about driving from Chicago, Il to Doswell, Va in August and finding out that a coaster that was supposed to open in MARCH was still not ready (Volcano: The Blast Coaster)

The ride sucks anyway.....
