Supposedly it reopened before the park closed.

A crowd of people trying to run seems to have been the scariest part of this situation.

Ladder came down from in the station @ 9:58. Ran 6-9 test cycles then reopened to everyone that was still waiting outside the entrance. That was like 10:10 or so. (I figured they would have told us to get lost cause it was after closing, but they let us on.)

I Want to ride it more in different rows to give it a fair evaluation. Quick notes.

I rather there had been a pre drop.
I could do without the first immelman inversion, those are pretty boring IMO.
I would have rather it been a typical b&m and head straight into a large vertical loop or like hulk and head straight into a cobra roll then it could have went on to the vertical loop through the lift.
I enjoyed the zero g.
The pretzel was good at the pullouts. The overall pretzel is better on a flyer like tatsu.
Vertical loop was good.
The carousel turn could have been a little tighter.
The heartline was good.
The downward helix was blah, r aptors helixesque would have been perfect.

Its a improvement over b&m's latest american inverts (silver bullet & patriot).

From what I heard from friends who were in line, Banshee was down because a Hydraulic hose came loose and the sound freaked people out and had them running from the line queue like there was an explosion happening. No one was hurt, much less killed, and the ride even reopened later in the evening.

Yep, she popped her cork at 9:00pm and started hissing at the crowd. :wild:
