The race is on...

a) Timberliners in "revenue service" on the Voyage

b) Shoot The Rapids open at Cedar Point

c) Skyrocket open at Kennywood

Place your bets, folks. Something tells me the smart money is on Skyrocket. :)

Wouldn't that be funny, if Flying Turns, which I don't think hardly anybody expects to be ready this season, beats all three? :)

Fun: Demon Drop isn't running yet? Oh. Of course. What am I thinking? It is an Intamin ride. A 30-year=old Intamin ride, but an Intamin ride none the less.

What are you suggesting? That Intamins are balky upon installation? Don't be ridiculous.

Volcano, Drop Zone (KI), Drop Zone (KD) etc.

Those are just a few of my personal experiences.

Wicked Twister needed additional supports after a few months, Maverick needed an element removed, Superman: The Escape was months late...

Never let it be said that I shy away from public displays of winkiness.

I vote for the Timmies on Voyage. Skyrocket may be complete, but Premier is not that much better than Intamin in the reliability department.

We always take Mike's posts with a grain of sarcasm! :)

I'm going with Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 Titanium.
