it has not operated since sunday, i was there and i am tired of spending $500 a trip to try to ride a coaster that is such a piece of crap that they cant even keep it open for more than a week before it "breaks"(IMO they just want to save some $$$ by not launching it and still charging the same $43 for it.) it seems that CP is begining to drop lower than Six Flags. maby CedarFair should have fixed the coasters that they already have instead of buying a new park that all their going to do is screw up more than it already is.
maby cedarfair needs to get their priorties straight.
You should know by now that going to a park only to ride one thing can lead to trouble. If your primary focus is to ride it, and you know it tends to go down a lot, why not plan your trip near the beginning and end of season when the mechanics have a full week to fix it when the park isnt open?
And they are not charging $43 to ride TTD, rather they are charging $43 to be admitted into the park.
Since when are they charging $43 for a Dragster ride? Oh, wait. You mean entry into the park where there are 67 other attractions for you to ride and spend time on... Oh....
Rides can have issues. Look at the Deja Vu trio. And saying Cedar Fair is turning into Six Flags? Come on. It's one ride out of a huge number of rides owned by the chain. In fact, it's only because this ride is so advanced. It's other "siblings" aren't as advanced and are running fine.
If you are actually planning your trip around TTD, you have other issues to work out.
I have gone to Cedar Point 9 times this year, only once has TTD been down the whole day. I have never gone to the park and seen MF down either, this is the first ride I have gone and seen down. It is not always down, 1/10 chances of it being closed IMO.
I went to MM one time and Scream, S:TE, collosus backwards, Riddlers Revenge, Flaskback, and Deja Vu were all down. X had one train operation, yet Viper had 2.
I used to go to SFWOA, BKF would be down at least once ever day, X-Flight rarely had more then 2 trains running.
In fact, it's only because this ride is so advanced. It's other "siblings" aren't as advanced and are running fine.
Sike!!...They all use the same technology. TTD's just has more horsepower. But either way, I think CP is doing a real good job in keeping the ride open as much as they can. Does this mean that the relationship between Intamin and Cedar Fair is shot?
Antuan, I believe the topic has gone in circles in the technology aspect, but I thoguht the consensus was that TTD is more technologically advacned as it has more sensors and has to push the train much harder. Regardless, I could and probably am wrong.
