the reason why the robin side was closed is because it is getting lab bars put on it so that your head does not hurt for the hoarse collar.

Having worked in operations for four years at the
park, here's the deal.
Robin: Undergoing major ride enhancements; it
will open within the next month.
Viper: May/may not open this year. It needs major
structural work, and there are alot of mechanical
problems. Looks like it's on its way out if you ask
Jack Flash and the Space Ship are down mechanical. Jack Flash's parts have been ordered,
and it doesn't appear that they'll be arriving anytime soon. As for the Space Ship, same deal, it's been down for over a year now...
Rodeo Stampede, El Sombrero, Taz Twister, Pendulum, Chaos, and Jolly Roger were down due to lack of personnel (LOP). It's either open the flats,
which we have PLENTY of, or get multiple trains on the coasters...
As for one side of Time Warp, be lucky THAT was open. It's seen as a ''waste of money'' to run both sides of TW. They only bought two because it was a package deal, and so if one goes down mechanical, they run the other one.
I know, it's frustrating. But during peak season, just about everything within the park's power will be up and running...
