PGA Falling to pieces! (Except Grizzly!)

Never been there. It's "the girl's" home park so...

It seemed every ride there besides the oldies (Grizzly, Demon) was braking down.

These were all while we were in the lines for these rides. So I imagine it was happening a bit more than we saw:

+Stealth broke down twice while we were in line. Once before we got on...the second time our restraints stuck closed at the gates to depart.

+Drop Zone several times running on only 2 or three cars (one of the lifts was stuck at the top several times.)

+Top Gun was down for about 3 hours (and that damn tape loop of the "pilots" giving the specs of the TomCat stopped midway and kept looping the same...argh.)

+Invertigo brake malfunction on the return launch...hanging for 20 minutes a few car lengths from the station (BTW Does anyone know why the train is only running with 7 cars? Did they remove a car from the original 8 or was that empty space in the front made intentionally?)

Oh and uh...the Grizzly hurts a whole lot.
Psycho Mouse was great...finally got on Top Gun and I'd have to say the helix over water finale gives it the edge over Batman.

Best time to ride Drop Zone is at night. (Even the staff all head there at closing to get sent up.)

Uh...poop.

The reason why it only runs 7 trains instead of 8, I'm pretty sure is so that the little car can hook to the holding break at the top of the first spike, I noticed that riding Two Face in the back so many times.
