It's an Intamin ride, it will open when it's done. Seriously, my sources at the Farm are refusing to give any kind of a date on completion. This is not unusual for these particular rides. Having had at least one reported incident on the launch system, DOSH is going to make them jump through many hoops.

Well, it’s been closed for nearly 6 months now. It closed shortly after Volcano at Kings Dominion reopened after a 2 week downtime period this summer.

Not a good year for Cedar Fair Intamin coasters at all.


Hey, let's ride (random Intamin coaster). What? It's broken down? I totally didn't expect that.

Didn’t even know it was closed. What happened?


But then again, what do I know?

It was open when I was there on 2 separate days in July.

Well, it was probably closer to 4 months. Definately feels like 6 though

Same. July 13th and July 14th I think. I rode it on July 14th.

So not even 3.5 months... Still a long time.

Based on reddit, it happened late July. Linked picture on imgur was uploaded August 1st. The OP suggests he has spoken to folks at the park, and states it might be February before it is open again.
