So is that what happened to the magical leprechauns from Busch Gardens? I was just chatting with one of the employees that is assigned to work the new DarKastle, and joked with him about who is going to get their new ride up and running first. His bet was actually six flags, but I asked him if he was ever subjected to Six Flags.
Of course it was necessary, if he didn't start a whole buttload of threads, how could he possibly keep trying to get a thread to last more than 24 hours without turning to the inevitable SoB bash-fest? ;)
Seriously though, if you ever wanted an answer as to why people feel Cedar Fair is the superior company, just think about the obvious answer to this question? Could they have worked out some bugs? Sure, but would you really be inclined to trust them? I'll be at SFGAdv Apr. 30 and I expect to get some nice pics of KK and that's about it.
Edit: as long as we're at it with a new Ka thread, anyone checked out the time-delay construction video? It's pretty dang cool, especially the background music =) Six Flags is awesome at marketing themselves, and generating excitement, now if they can only figure out a way to consistantly deliver, they'll be fine ... *** Edited 4/14/2005 11:42:10 PM UTC by Impulse-ive***

Playa, you never know, I mean if he wants to marathon SOB he may get enough hemorrhaging going on that CNN and the rest of the news media when they turn his death into some "roller coasters are dangerous" propoganda.
Never say never.

Has anyone else noticed from the pics that the brake-run and turnaround back into the station seems very short. The brake run for TTD is so long and it uses most of it to stop... KK looks very short by comparison, though it looks like the bunny hill has some breaking on it.
But it still looks off to me... but then what the hell do I know?
