    likely, though soft openings are never guaranteed (unless you are talking about Mission: SPACE which had a very screwed up opening schedule with announced soft openings for 2 months)

    Given what they have had to deal with on Big Thunder Mountain, YES, they need to inspect. And reinspect. For months. And then inspect it every morning before they let guests on. This actually is, for all intents and purposes, a brand new ride. While the track layout is identical, the track itself and supports are all brand new, so this is technically a brand new roller coaster. It would be like saying they didn't need to inspect RnRC in Paris b/c they had already built one in Florida and it worked.
    But BTM had a serious ACCIDENT and was found to have been neglected. I would think that the inspections there were to insure the problems had been corrected.

    Don't get me wrong, I dont want this opened up too early just for marketing purposes, I want a safe ride for my kids and I to enjoy. I was just wondering what the reason for inspecting a ride that is basically the same as before. But I see your point.

    I would agree with Dusty & friends on this one. I would rather ride a perfect ride that has all the out of whack like music synch and effects fixed, then just to ride it for its own sake. Be patient people. May 5th is coming faster than I expected, and July 15th should be even faster.

Sure, the que and effects are fresh, but it is my understanding that the track is the exact same lay-out. So wouldn't this simply be a glorified maintenance project to the inspectors? After all, this is not a new ride.

    Quite right. Remember our infuriation when it closed for no reason? Or when they set the vague opening date of November 2005 for its rerelease? Also, remember our atavistic joy and ecstacy when the release date was moved closer and closer, and eventually cemented on June 15, 2005? I think I will enjoy the ride on its real day. Plus, I need something to look forward to on the anniversary. :monkey:

If things are just perfect, we will turn on them like the pack of wolves that we are.

    Since the track itself has been completed for some time now according to the gossip, they may already have it.

    There have been hushed discussions about this very possibility among the ranks at TDA dq...but only time will tell if they make good on it

    Open it! Open it! Open it! They can always add more things in a mini-rehab. If they want to get the bulk of the 50th crowds, they need to open it, as soon as it's safe.

    I agree, because my friend and I were the ones that met Matt O. when he told us about Space Mountain. He said that he had ridden the ride already, but he didnt say that all of the effects were working. If the ride is operational already, I would assume that the left over time would be used for effects, music, and theming.
