Tsunami now open? Park says YES!

Saturday, September 11, 2004 2:14 PM
Hello everyone!

I have been working with the park as it's been my intention to include Tsunami in our 2005 calendar. I received an email today from my contact at the park stating the coaster is now open...as in TODAY, SEPTEMBER 11th!!

Now, the park's website states a Sept 18th opening, but she claims it's open now. Just an FYI, for anyone in the area. I suggest calling the park first if you're going to go.

Fingers crossed for anyone who plans to visit!

Ooooh, can't wait to get a few TRs. Anyone know if the park will be open around PPP time?

After TimidChicken, early indications are that parks have asked S&S to "kick it up a notch"...:)

bill, figuring that the park "promises" the ride to be operating by Sept 18 in case any last-minute tweaks were needed...

That will be insane to have four new-to-me (and fairly new themselves) coasters that I'm highly anticipating on one trip next season.

Storm Runner, Tsunami, Hydra, and Mahhhcgreatophobiadventure (aka Unknown at GAdv)

Yes, Gator! 5pm-11pm the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of PPP weekend for Hallowscreams. Not sure if that means the coaster is going to be open but the park will be.

Tsunami did open today, but the park is closed to the public. It will open on Sept. 18th to the public. They're open Friday/Sat/Sun in October.

It looks like you planned your east coast trip the wrong weekend Moosh. Maybe at PPP you can get over there. I'll actually be around for PPP too. :) *** Edited 9/11/2004 8:52:03 PM UTC by coasterpunk***

CPunk - I didn't plan the trip, Jim "jimvid" McDonnell did. We had plenty of fun without Clementon, although you were missed.

I may hit Clementon the weekend of PPP...we'll see how my schedule is.

See ya in a few weeks!

Bring me up to speed here guys.

Why would a seasonal park open their newest attraction in the middle of September?

Did they experience problems that delayed it or was this planned all along?

Danny's wild guess says S&S spread themselves too thin... I really have nothing to back that up though. I don't think a park would *plan* to open their "new for 2004" attraction a month or so away from closing for the year.

A late, LATE season opening is not unprecedented. SFGAm opened Deja Vu in September. Better late in the year than never in the year.

Clementon, huh? Two-oh-oh-five just might find me in the Garden State after all.

Heck IBsteve, SFGAm opened Deja Vu in October actually. :)

I know it isn't unprecedented. Which is why I asked if it was planned or did they experience problems (like DV). SFGAm planned to have DV open at the beginning of the 2001 season.

Construction was delayed, then the park had problems getting the state to approve the ride for operation.

So who is the park open to this weekend? I would go tomorrow if I could. Only live about a half hour away. If not I'll definitely go next weekend.

Because apparently the Governor was too busy riding a woodie himself to sign off on it...;)

Okay, I know it wasn't the reason, but mOOSH left that one wide open for anybody to fill in;).

I'd like to get there next weekend but the tentative plans also call for a trip to the Great Escape to ride the Comet before it gets totally ruined... maybe the weekend after. Bottom line is, if the coaster is open in September, I will be riding it in September!

Is something happenning to Comet that I'm not aware of?

I've said it before, but what a loss for Clementon. It's one thing when you've got umpteem coasters like SFOG and have one that hasn't opened, and another thing altogether when you're a small park with a bunch of Chance rides, and no coaster. Hopefully, they'll reap the rewards next season, and throughout what's left of this season.
