Re: Boss goes under the knife and loses 420ft.

Yeah I could see the need to trim it harder on the mid course but still with the drop out of the mid course it will still fly up into the double up. I am looking forward to trying it next Sunday on the way home from Bond's Prom.

Too bad the alteration didn't come with better trains as well
I know...I would love to see how amazing that ride would be with Timberliners, Millennium Flyers or even a PTC.

A video of Boss testing has made its way to YouTube.

Man that is flying up into the brake run. There is going to be some fantastic air on those hills. I see an improved ride.

Any word on when it will open?

Hey Josh...sorry about the pink martini glass showing up when you typed your name in. That was for a old user who likes Foofy drinks...so I have changed it to f o o f y (remove spaces) for the pink drink smiley.

That looks sweet. I really want to get to Northern Europe. Lisbergbahn is my #1 bucketlist coaster.

Re: Boss goes under the knife and loses 420ft.

With the speed not getting robbed by all of the shuffling through the helix there is going to be a nice pop of air coming up into the brakes. Honestly this is going to drastically improve the ride and make it worlds more rideable. Plus I am going to count it as a new credit as shortening it some 420...

Re: Coaster Con 2018

Wow all of those hotels are nowhere near the parks...I might have to find somewhere closer incase Carrie gets tired of parks and needs to head back to the hotel.

Re: Boss goes under the knife and loses 420ft.

I was told that if they were to do a RMC they would have to axe about 1000 feet of track as SF wouldn't give them the funds for a complete redo. This way the ride hopefully gets better (or at least less painful) and maybe one of these decades the park will put in another coaster.

Re: Boss goes under the knife and loses 420ft.

Well as long as it doesn't rattle the shit out of you it will be a better ride.

So the big question is...with such a radical section of track loss do we count it as a new credit?
