Being one of the first to ride the relocated Starliner: :)PRICELESS!!!:)
Answer my Prayers: Overbook my next Flight!
It was alot of fun yesterday and what a special treat for the few of us that just happened to be at the right place at the right time.
Maybe one last look at the Starliner as I may go opening day for one last round of photos and a few more rides.
WOw, He's out five bucks, Why didn't he make it 50 cents and give everybody temporary status.
Chuck, not blaming Kent for the delay but I think either all or nothing should have sufficed. I showed up at a media day that the coaster didn't open once, They gave us the rest of the days pass for free and THE REAL MEDIA DAY plus ert FOR FREE when it did open.
I got to stay here in Titletown and work on eradicating dozens of programming bugs...kinda helps to explain why I'm so forgiving of S&S... ;)
I didn't get picked for the Saturday media day (via lottery), probably go anyway....maybe Sunday. MANY thanks to Kent B., the engineering and construction crews, to PTC, to Cypress, ACE, and anyone involved that got us back the oldest wooden coaster in FL....and an improved version no less... :)
Unfortunately, ride's broken until further notice. Best GUESS (from park employees, but not mechanics) is that a sensor took a nosedive early yesterday. Starliner *should* be open again by this coming weekend...based on the prediction of the operator at GR this AM. "Down for the next SEVERAL days".
I remember KY Rumbler took a lightning strike and was up the following day (granted, that was after going to WAY extraordinary lengths to get the part delivered and installed). Makes me wonder if the "sensor" was really the cause...?
