Unfortunately the immense amount of rain over the past several weeks has made this project very difficult. Good to see they were able to get a test run in, apparently it has been stressful for all parties involved.
And if I remember correctly, Kings Dominion's Hurler had its media day about four hours after the first train ran through.
The Boss had about half a day between first run and first riders - the G trains weren't ready and the media was coming the next day, so they borrowed a PTC from the Screamin' Eagle. I treasure those rides!
SOB, Legend, THE BOSS, Starliner. Twister, SOB again with the G trains and its also common first runs of a season
Should I go on? The track guage is extremely tight. The wheel bearing grease is full viscosity and cold and half the time they just want to send it on it's first trip before greasing the track ect.
Most woodies Valley, Matter of Fact, Boss had so much trouble they put the PTC's from Screeming Eagle on it for their media day and still won't run the coaster with less than ten people sitting in the first three cars. That or all seats with sandbags.
I would guess Ghostrider rolled back as well. It barely makes it up to the scenic turnaround as it is. Hershey Wildcat valleyed with its new trains. El Toro has valleyed several times. Did Hades? I'd think that high turnaround after the first tunnle would be a trouble spot.
