The Today show going live from the city tomorrow? For some reason I thought they were there last week.

Looking back at the post, it doesn’t say live. Could just be airing tomorrow.

Branson Talk / Re: The Haygoods-
« on: March 20, 2018, 03:17:05 PM »
According to the article the Haygoods venue is at SDC, which is an amusement park inside of the cave.

Quote
The most popular show in Branson, Missouri, is run by a six-member team of siblings who perform country, rock, and pop music covers. The venue is in the 1880s-themed amusement park, Silver Dollar City, which sits in one of Missouri’s deepest caves.

With regards to heights...
GE Coaster / FITH
ThuNderaTion
PowderKeg
Outlaw Run / Time Traveler
Wildfire

Here is the list with minimum heights:

36” GE Coaster / FITH
42” Thnderation / Powder Keg
48” Outlaw Run
51” Time Traveler
52” Wildfire

5
I did not realize that Powder Keg and Thinderation allowed 42” riders with a companion as the app doesn’t say that like it does for other rides that allow 36” riders with a companion. That does make it a bit better, but having something a bit more in between would still be a great addition. Not that a new big coaster wouldn’t be great too. My perspective has changed on this now that my 2 year old loves Fire in the Hole and wishes that there were more coasters that we could do together.

Personally, I think that the park could really use a more truly family coaster like FireChaser or Big Thunder Montain Railroad. Currently, kids go from the GE coaster/Fire in the Hole straight to Outlaw Run and Powder Keg. Having a longer coaster at the 40” height would be a huge help for families with slightly older kids.

A train is currently sitting at the first launch and worker are up there talking to people on it.

I am telling you I just have this bad feeling this will be a ride that breaks down quite a bit.  It is just way too complicated.

I'm worried too....seems like a lot of fail points....a lot more than a traditional coaster that really just has a lift hill, brake run(s), train restraints, and station stuff that could break.  This ride has all that (minus the lift hill) plus two launch hills and a controlled spin feature.  Added risks for a new type of ride.  I really hope we are wrong and the it's actually more reliable.

I’m really not that concerned. It’s a new type of ride that has only been open to the public for 5 days so there are bound to be initial issues to be resolved. Also, Mack isn’t new to multi launch coasters. It’s way too early to claim doom and gloom.

Rumor is that it was a rollback after the first launch. No idea if that is true as I didn’t see it happen.

Remember when the name Wild Mountain got thrown around? Saw this on TPR. It's great to see a little touch like this that 99% of people won't get.

...I wouldn't be surprised if they are rolling out three train operation today. I certainly expect to see it tomorrow.

Wait times in the app have been much shorter today compared to the last two days. Either there are strangely low crowds, they aren't reporting accurate times or they are running three trains. Could possibly be a mixture of a few reasons too.

All rides have been reporting walk on or very short times today, not just Time Traveler.

At about 0:45 in the video above, it looks like there is a green screen photo area just as you enter the building.
It's also a more complete walkthrough of the building while empty.

Is that for a daily trailblazer pass?  If you have a season trailblazer pass do those only get you on once also?

Yes, once per day.
