I was at PKD today (full report in trip reports) and I was lucky to be able to ride all the coasters. But three of the coasters were down at least once while I was there. Hypersonic closed by 11. I was able to get on the 4th train. Volcano was closed twice while I was there. And Shockwave was also down for a while. For those that are nearby, is this common for the park or did I just catch it on a bad day. If I had been just a couple of minutes later I wouldn't have gotten on H:XLC and I certainly would have been mad. I just wanted everybody to be aware of these problems if you were planning a trip to PKD.

my buddies and I are going to PKD on this coming Saturday.It has been such a very long time since me and my buddies have been to PKD. And I hope that there's not any problems with those coasters when my buddies and I go to PKD this Saturday.

Unfortunately, this is not uncommon for PKD. I have been there many times when 3 different coasters have been up and down all day. ( :) Didn't even mean for that to be funny.)
On the other hand, I have been there when everything was open. I like PKD..have a season pass...but it is just luck what will be open. BGW is better about having all coasters open, but even they are not always 100%.

Hypersonic is down as much as it is up in my experience. Volcano frequently has problems, but they usually last no more than a couple hours.
