Lightning Run

This ride cost over $7 million.  Another million dollars was spent to renovate the Thunder Run wooden coaster.  The current plans are to refurbish the two other Standing But Not Operating (SBNO) coasters during the next two seasons. T2 is planned to reopen in 2015, but it may be called T3 by then.  It is not exactly clear what will be done to modify Twisted Twins, but the current plan is to have it running for the 2016 season.  I have heard various rumors that its modification will be more than simple retracking... It may be turned into one very long track, or it may get totally converted into a much different ride from when it last operated in 2008.
