"Timber Wolf was closed this weekend (April 29, 30), but should be open this weekend (May 6, 7). For the last two weeks, we have been working on a massive retracking that should be complete by the time we go full-time (around may 15). The work is being done by an outside organization that specializes in this type of work. A little later than originally planned, but happening! I am extremely excited and from the sound of it, Timber Wolf should run like new once the work is complete."
So if you haven't decided to go yet, this SHOULD help in that decision.
Yes, T-Wolf was getting quite rough. I rode it just once on opening day last month, hoping that they haven't forgotten about this thing! Well it's awesome to hear that it will be running good for Mayhem, i'm going now for sure.
I'm going to have to see this to believe it. Timber Wolf is very dear to me. Ok, I guess I'll go to Mayhem.
Swoosh, I missed you at opening day. Once I get locked in, let's arrange a meeting. If Timber Wolf is in fact running anywhere close to "like new", I will be riding it most of the day. So if all else fails, look for the guy that looks like me, riding Timber Wolf all day and night. :)
I'm not sure what all is in store for the event, but I will say that they some of the prizes for the raffle are really cool -- and if I don't win one of the things that they are giving away that I really want I will beat down the person who does. I have no idea what I would do with it, but I want it. :)
Bill, the park is not at liberty to say who is doing the retracking, but I do think that is the company that is doing the work.
Matt, thanks for giving me so much credit. ;) Have not heard either way, but I hope so too.
As of right now there are about 70 people pre-registered for the event. If you have not pre-registered you have until 18th to get your form in (or call). Please do so as I want there to be a large turnout for this event so that it will continue and become an annual event.
Also update on the progress made on Timber Wolf. They have retracked the bobs turn, the entrance to the helix and as well as the first drop. The ride will be worked on again this week and I have will be closed again this coming weekend.
