Post Magnum's impression of The Ghost of Dodgem II, CP is now running single-train operation in the slightest hint of rain on at least Magnum (no surprise), Mean Streak, and Mine Ride. Blech. But, strangely enough, not Gemini. Don't know about any of the others, as we never made it out of the back 1/3 of the park.
Maverick was a hoot; this was my first chance at getting on this season. For some reason, I've not been to CP much this summer---too much else to do. I was in the last row on the gunmetal train, and it had a nasty vibration. Hopefully just a bum wheel. Despite that, it was a real winner---just fun from start to finish.
But now they think it's going to somehow slip through TWO blocks at the same time!? Give me a break. Going to one train, especially with the effort required to go down to one and get back up to three on Magnum or Iron Dragon or Corkscrew, is simply ridiculous. Fix the real problem for the love of god.
When it's threatening? So maybe when there is a "danger" that it might start raining really hard, they don't want to risk having two trains anywhere remotely close to each other. Goodness, you could just close the ride altogether...
It's magnetic brake time!
