Well that’s a s#!t
It’s metro NYC. Everything’s more expensive there.
Okay, yes NYC is expensive as hell, but $80?!?! I can verify that is really expensive, even for NYC.
Okay, yes NYC is expensive as hell, but $80?!?! I can verify that is really expensive, even for NYC. I mean that's $20 less than a day at Disneyland or Universal, parks with more than a handful of rides open (and much, much more quality). It's worth noting that it's $80 on weekends only, it will be $60 Mon-Thu. Still outrageous but at least slightly better. Also, according to the site at least, Shredder and Nickelodeon Streak are open, with everything else notable being closed.
I really wonder if this will backfire for them. I can't think of anyone outside of our niche group who'd be willing to pay $80 to get in, and I think a lot of people on the site still wouldn't shell it out. So, a family of four, wanting to ride anything worthwhile, would pay $320 for a single day. Not including parking, food, etc...
Are most of the other rides open? And was Shellraiser showing signs of testing?I'm at the park today, shredder and slimestreak are both open but shellraiser is closed at least for now. I saw some intamin engineers working on the half pipe (it has the taron style restraints - is that a first?). The back car of the other intamin is separated from the front two and on a maintenance section of track. Parking is not manned at the moment and the barriers are up so it appears to be free.
I stand corrected, I probably couldn't tell the difference without looking very closely, the main thing is that they're lap bars and not otsrsBoth the halfpipe and launch have Altair style restraints, not Taron. They're similar but have some small differences. Pantheon will have the first Taron style restraints in the US.
Just interested in the rides that are still closed. I heard rumours that only around half the rides are open, but the website shows that only around 4-5 rides are still unopened.I saw some engineers looking at the bottom of the vertical lift earlier but otherwise not much moment on shellraiser. I've currently left to get some lunch as there's no hot food in the park, but I'll be heading back in approximately one beers time.
The drop/shot has been testing quite often and is filed with dummies, the air air race outer open, and quite a lot of the flat rides in general seem to be running, are the any rides you want to know about in particular?
I think everything apart from shellraiser, blasting bronco, the drop tower and the half pipe seem to be open. There appears to be sure engineers working on bronco at the moment and the seats have been removed from the half pipe.Just interested in the rides that are still closed.
