I'm surprised no one mentioned that Outlaw Run now has cubbies. 
You are welcome, America.
So Swoosh, what can you do about bringing back the diving bell?

Don't think it will happen anytime soon. However Swoosh, use all the powers you can. I would be willing to help in the development and re-launch phases because I'd like to make sure my old school buddies and I are somehow remembered as part of the original attraction.  ;) :)

Heads up- we discovered something interesting at Outlaw Run over the weekend we didn't know.  As stated before they play themes from different westerns in the queue line along with an occasional monologue about the ride.  If the music isn't playing the ride isn't operating.  we were in line twice when the ride went down (it was running again in less than 10 minutes each time) and after the announcement the ride would be down they stopped the theme music until it was operating again.  Thought that was helpful info.

I rode Outlaw Run and Texas Giant this last week....and as if you guys didn't already know.....Outlaw Run is the much better coaster. Texas Giant has a great drop, and several great moments of airtime. But Texas Giant does not have the same feeling of speed and intensity that Outlaw Run has. I can't wait for March to arrive so I can ride Outlaw Run again.

OUTLAW RUN >>> NEW TEXAS GIANT > IRON RATTLER

I don't even think Goliath is going to even come close to the epic which is Outlaw Run... though I will see next Summer

I'm betting the next whacked out Outlaw Run good RMRC will be at Silverwood. I'm thinking the kids need to see the Rockies in person soon ;D Daddy could find some good trout fishing as well plus there's a kick tail golf course out that way too.

And Swoosh, good win, I hate all things Stoolwater.

Does anyone know if they are doing any retrofits or improvements to Outlaw run to improve its reliability for 2014 ? I would think with all the downtime this year there would have to be something in the works and not just accept the status Quo on it. It seemed to suffer from numerous problems the first year.

Well unreliability is not really uncommon for a first year coaster, and especially from a fairly new builder like RMC.  Its far less common from experience like B&M.
I didnt get to frazzled by it last year. I remember Mr Freeze at SFSL took 2 years to get the bugs worked thru it. Nowadays, Mr Freeze is one of the more reliable rides. -- As old as The Boss is, it still has reliability issues, mainly in colder weather. It also can (and does) valley quite often, especially during the early morning testings before the park opens.  Actually it does that often enough that they have "trap tracks" that can be removed easily so they can remove/replace the trains when it does valley.

What am I saying, Well--OR might become a very reliable coaster in the next year (or two). Then again, it might not ever be reliable.  Either way, it is a blast when it runs.

I guess what I am saying coming from a mechanical background. The problems just will not go away. You need to address them and correct them. Hopefully they are putting fixes in place or you will have another PK with constant problems.
