If I had to guess, once the crew learns the ride and gets into a groove I would say that capacity will probably be pretty similar to viper. Now I have no recolection of Viper when it first opened, but I have to imagine it kept the lines moving pretty well. No way the line gets longer than 3-4 hours at the very most.

8-9 hours seems absurd. It seems like Thorpe and Dollywood have figured out the groove of things, so I'm sure that our capacity should be pretty good. The hardest part is definitely going to be getting riders of and new riders on fast enough. Does anyone know how long the ride is from dispatch the final break run into the station? I guess we will find out today when they post the video. I'm just hoping for a 2-3 hour line. Depending on the day. Midweek will definitely be shorter than a Saturday or Sunday. I always try my hardest to shoot for a Tuesday or Wednesday. I think they are opening it to pass holders first because they know that there are less of them. Then they can see how they should run the ride before the GP comes running at them at full force.

Sadly, you are probably right even though X-Flight contains 16 more seats.
Ilovigo-- Me = Dopey; just trying to get another kiss from Snow White. |Remember you don't know what you got until it's gone. That ride you liked might be in the dump next year. Or if you lose a leg, you can't ride much of anything. Cherish what you have now.
it hit the second zero g roll really nicely as well.. Its seems to me like you hit the inversion pretty quickly, then it slows down a lot while you're exiting that same inversion. Can't wait to see how it will be with the hangar, control tower, and water jets in place!
^ Raging Bull ran yesterday too. Today and tomorrow Raging Bull, Giant Drop, Vertical Velocity, The Dark Knight Coaster, Little Dipper, River Rocker, Ricochet, Whirligig, and possibly others will be running for crew training. Whizzer, American Eagle, Demon and whatever else doesn't run this weekend will run next weekend.
