Wow, it's great that they got the ride open. Hopefully the changes made will last a good amount of time so a closure like this would be unnecessary.

Well maybe I will get lucky and if I do get to go a second time to the park then it will still be open. Its looking like late October or November if I am lucky.

I cant belive this. I missed it by a month, and now i will probably not get another chance to ride it in atleast 3 or 4 years.

I hope what ever they did to it works for good now. Maybe we'll start seeing some more of these things in the future. Hopefully I'll make it out to california in another year or 2 to hopefully ride it then.

I bet they found some ways to lighten the load on the train. That's awesome that it's open, anyone know if it's one or two train op.

Fantastic news!!!! Now how about one for the UK!!!!!!! Seriously though, now some of the teething problems have been dealt with, it's about time someone had the foresight to bail Arrow out of their current financial crisis and take a share in the profits this remarkable innovation in coaster technology will, no doubt, yield! I've not heard even one mediocre review of this ride, let alone any bad press. Everyone seems to love it. Here's a thought...how about a merger between Arrow and B&M :)

What does this mean for the Arrow vs. Six Flags case? And what does this mean for Arrow's future?

I am really curious to see how this operates within the next year... If it will suffer more major downtime, or if its going to run perfectly

john peck-I am very cruios also. I mean, this is almost like a second opening and every ride has problems after it opens. I wonder what they did to prevent the trains from having the same problems again.

Sweet news! It's great to know that people will get to enjoy some of my memories of riding. Maybe next year if I could just get on Jeopardy (I just missed getting on this year) I can ride again. Hopefully the new trains will be able to rotate without the help of the ops (the ops have to rotate the riders onto their backs using thier weight).

X rocks!
