In the thick of it
Intamin.... That is all...
Yep. I just hope Sandor doesn't read these boards, too. :lol:

When Intamin gets their stuff to actually work, it is usually pretty darn awesome. When they don't...yeah, lots of people that make lots of money and buy the rides get really ticked. The funny thing is, most of us in the community just expect the issues by now and say "Meh...Intamin." This is why one of their water rides that is only 5 years old is being dismantled (although that probably means HW is getting a good deal on a prefab woodie... :drool: ).

I'm predicting this is the last Intamin attraction to Busch or SeaWorld for a number of years

I know this is off-topic, but wouldn't a Rocky Mountain coaster fit Holiday World nicely?

Just how bad are the problems of this ride compared to others, like Rip Ride Rockit's or Mach Tower's. Is it really as bad as what you're saying? :jaw:

It legitimately scares me that they are having problems with the ride. I know they'll figure it out and all will be fine, but on a ride that could pretty much send you plummeting to your death if something went wrong, forgive me for being a bit cautious. :lol:

Cedar Fair has pretty much stopped using them as well. Their problems are slowly starting to catch up with them. Kinda makes me worry about Gringotts. Or was Intamin not involved with that?

Whenever you really try and push the boundaries then problems are the norm, as such; I am pretty sure BGT knew there might be hiccups.
Also, perhaps BGT was just being too optimistic in setting an early opening date ...

We'll be lucky if it makes a late May opening.... So much for ideas of a new ride.....

Ps- BGT does not need anymore prototypes

Question to anybody who knows, do you think bg would allow you to take a go pro up on falcons fury? I'd love to make a video of my first impressions

Thanks for the video! That looks pretty neat! :cheers:
The way up was definitely sped up (look at the cars and Gwazi trains below), so it should be a longer trip up, but the way down looks like it was at normal speed and it looked pretty thrilling! I'm actually really looking forward to ride this on my next trip down to BGT! :thumbs:

Has anyone heard if they will bring the second train back on to Scorpion? I imagine the area will be busy enough now to warrant it.

Bob (a previous member here) took a GoPro on Manta once, so Busch certainly seem open to the idea.

That climb took what felt like forever, at that was at double(?) speed! Can't imagine how painful it'll be at normal speed :'(
