As reported on www.geaugalaketoday.com Raging Wolf Bobs is recieving it's final retracking. The second turnaround of the coaster is stripped and being prepped for retracking. This will complete the entire ride's retracking process.
With that said it's obvious the park is doing more than just adding Tidal Wave Bay, they are fixing up the rides park as needed. So, is there a chance villian is being rehabbed? Right now it seems 50/50. But the fact is, the park is fixing up the things that matter. Can't wait for a new ride on the wolf bobs in May!!
This past year, Bobs was *infinitely* improved over my first rides from 4-5 years ago...with the last leg of the re-tracking, it should be more than acceptable accompaniment to that great O-n-B on the other side of the park... :)
CF *improving* wooden coasters....what's up with that? ;)
If they do what Cedar Fair normally does with a wood coaster, the next rehab has already started on Raging Wolf Bobs. They usually put the wood coasters on a schedule where they rebuild and retrack a portion of the ride every year, in hopes that they don't get like Raging Wolf Bobs!
RWB is getting better, but the last year re-tracking was half the quality of the first year IMO. The first re-tracking seem's to ride alot better, less shuffle. The sections done last year have a loose feel with the train.
I was told by the Director of Maintenance that the jazz track on Villain is going away. They're tired of trying to fix it. Too bad since that section of track was never laid properly to begin with according to one of my sources. Would be nice to put a tunnel there and give something back to the ride since they're taking something away.
