I was at PKI this weekend and they had a sign saying that they would be posting a technical rehersal date for people to attend. I looked on their website and couldn't really find anything. Does anyone know where to find out that kind of information or does anyone know the date already.
Also when I was there the ride was running the circuit for at least a couple hours and they even had the helicopter moving and the explosions. (about a 3 foot flame shoots out next to the helicopter.)
P.S. I would guess they would do the testing during the week but has anyone been to something like this before? Can just anyone show up?

PKI is closed to the GP during the week, so the only riders can be employees or outside contractors that have a part in the design/construction of the ride.
The "technical rehearsing" will start when they get everything set in place, tested, and inspected. This can be as late as May 20th to as early as this weekend, that is why there are no dates listed.

You may not like the ride because it is smooth.

I cant wait to hear your expert feedback on the ride. If son of beast is " the worlds greatest coaster", then why do so many people dislike it?
