I realize there was no real hurry with this, but good lord. This ride took forever to construct.

no hurry, means no "overtime", less cost in the long run.

They will be building the track at one end while simultaneously disassembling at the other to pack it up for Dorney.

But in all seriousness I am down to make a trip back to ride when it opens...... in 2025.

I think they meant La Ronde. Assuming the ride subjects riders to high levels of pain.

Yeah, guess I should have put La Ronde, didn't know off hand the SF equivalent for Dorney since Astroworld closed.

I thought it was pretty funny in any case.

So this is open now (or was open... supposedly it was down today with maintenance working on the lift hill). I got a few rides yesterday. Personally, I liked it better than the other raptor I've done (Wonder Woman at SFFT), but I say that as someone who prefers fun and re-rideable coasters over super intense ones. Jersey Devil may have the same hardware as Wonder Woman, but it rides more like Iron Rattler.

Operations seemed pretty good yesterday. While I'm sure the theoretical capacity is lower than the other headliners at the park, I imagine the actual throughput is comparable thanks to the continuous loading station. It ran all four trains throughout the day with trains rarely needing to stop.

Continuous loading is such a huge capacity gain, I don't know why more parks don't do it. (Except that apparently only enthusiasses care about capacity or something?)
