The winner gets absolutely nothing!
But it would be cool to come back in a couple months and see who was right first.
Im guessing they will roll this bad boy as soon as the lift motor chain and brakes are operational.
My guess is, APRIL 7th, Thats right, A full month before scheadualled opening.
I have many reasons for that guess including a very mild winter with only a few snow days (So Far) and six day a week construction. This bad boy will be rollin!
Chuck, who's probably wrong but it could be fun.
Oh and Edited post should be disqualified. So delete em and make another post if you wish to guess again.

Voyage's media day is first week of May. The press cannot ride it unless it has tested, passed inspection, and been signed over to the park by Gravity Group. I would think they would need at least a week of testing.
EDIT - Thanks to Jeff for pointing out that GCI had nothing to do with Voyage, LOL!

I'm going to go with Apirl 11 as Voyage's rolling date. As for El Toro......I have no clue.

Moosh, I dont think Will would care much if we didn't ever approve the ride. Best guess, the Gravity Group guys would be involved in that decision.
But who knows. I'll go ahead and throw a monkey wrench in the project and withold my approval indefinitely, if that makes any difference.
Instead, I will throw all of my approval support behind another ride opening a few hours south.

Didn't Timbers finish construction AND inspection the day of its first rides with people at a media/ACE event of some sort? Wasn't that the same day Sean F got to ride with Denise Dinn on her first ride?

April 17th for The Voyage.
July 5th for da Bull. ;)

I'd say 4-15 for Voyage, 4-20 for Bull, and 5-31 for Tatsu, which seems to be at a standstill.
Tuesday, January 24, 2006 1:46 AM
You sure about Tatsu?
Tuesday, January 24, 2006 8:25 AM
I'm going to say April 26th.
Tuesday, January 24, 2006 8:50 AM

Tuesday, January 24, 2006 11:00 AM
