    The other times I think it just missed the catch car. Only once did it stop outside the loop and I’m sure it was evacuated after, but we didn’t wait around to watch.

    The new train has been notorious for miscatches on the second tower. Like Zach said, if the second tower’s catch car misses the train there’s a brake area that will stop the train at the bottom of that section between the loop and the second tower, they can lower the catch car manually to that area and grab the train and winch it up the second tower, then release it so it will complete the cycle.

    I saw it testing before opening today - but when I walked by later it was not running. Shocking. LOL

    Was at the park today most the day this heap of junk was not running, but by time i got out the waterpark i saw it running. It looked slow going through the loop to tower 2. When i watched it but paid no more attention to it as i went to wc and then ended the night on sky screamer.

    Nope. I’m at the park and it’s still sitting at the bottom of the second tower.

    Now that it's getting cooler, be prepared for a rash of second tower miscatches...

    I’m not surprised, yesterday it was awful, I was disappointed, I only got to ride it once, then as soon as they started loading us into the station it valleyed, then went back up and valleyed again, that there was it for the day.

    Was anyone at the park this weekend? I had seen Goliath was temporarily closed then closed afterwards, just wondering what’s up, it’s been a hot mess this year so seeing it down again doesn’t surprise me.

    I was there Saturday afternoon. It was running but we didn’t ride in respect to our spine.

    I was going to get on today, but it closed right as I was about to. I saw maintenance working on the second tower's catchcar. Decided to hang around for a bit, but it obviously wasn't going to open any time soon. Unsure what they were doing/or what happened
