The phone number is at rcdb. VF has its opening day this weekend, but if I call and Hades is open, I might have to go there for at least an evening and get some night rides. The only problem is last time I called they said I could not get a season pass till Memorial Day, but I might just go anyway. I probably won't decide for sure till I leave.
I know that media day for Hades is during the week before Memorial Day weekend. I will say that much. I have every intention of being there for media day. I hope to post some kind of review of the ride for everyone sometime later that week. *** Edited 5/12/2005 11:43:32 AM UTC by beast7369***
I called the park again after I posted to ask if it would be open tomorrow too. They said they assume so right now but could not promise. The indoor water park is still open till 10 so you might be able to still call for yourself if you want. What they told me was good enough for me, but I know there is a chance I won't get to ride. Coasters are 10-6 tomorrow.
thanks Matt, I will be posting a TR if I do get to ride.
I am absolutely dying to hear a report on how awesome this thing is. Between the rediculous first drop, INSANE length and content of the tunnels, rediculous return trip, and overall craziness of the whole layout I can't tell which excites me more. Although I probably won't get up there for a few years, this thing has me excited.
EDIT: If this thing ends up sucking... it will be a huge case of anticipointment. *** Edited 5/15/2005 12:51:53 AM UTC by RollrCoastrCrazy***
I don't know how it could suck. It could be top tier or just pretty good, but how could it suck? (HH comes to mind and I hit myself for thinking that.) It might suck in a few years if it tears up the track, but hopefully it will still be intact tomorrow. ;) *** Edited 5/15/2005 1:15:48 AM UTC by RavenTTD***
The fact that it DID make the first run is probably a testament to how fast it will be later. I can't see something this huge defying physics as much as Avalanche but I'm sure it will have a bit of speed to it. :)
