I haven't been to all the coaster sites in a while, and kinda lost track on how rides are running. I am planning a trip to Cedar Point in a month and I am wonder how dragster has been running and if any other rides have been down.
Top Thrill Dragster has been running extremely consistently lately. Every time I have been to the park it has been in operation, with the exception being in times of inclement weather. Today while getting in line the queue line was filled with the exception of 1 1/2 sections of queue. The sign said 2 hours but the wait was a modest 45 min. Trains were launching like pancakes off a grill Sunday morning at Dennys. Probably 45 seconds between two trains moved together to the launching area, and maybe a minute and a half from that set of trains to the next. So maybe an average of 1 launch per 1 min 10 sec? Running Great.
Not sure at the moment, but last week they were only running one train and it was taking them a fair amount of time to dispatch it...I'd guess they were sending 1 train every 6 or 7 minutes, so capacity was quite low.
Was at the ACE CoasterCon... I arrived on Sunday, 6/20. TTD was running, but it went down in the mid-afternoon. Remained down all day Monday. Was operational Tuesday morning, 6/22, but went down again early that afternoon. It was up during the morning of Wed, 6/23, and I left CP early that afternoon for the banquet.
I can't find a trip report that does not mention random shut downs. There was one back in late May that seemed like it was up all day though! I just can't buy the 90% figure! Maybe only those people that are there on the 10% days bother to post trip reports!? :-)
