^^ They are going to add 80 feet to the top of it so that it can be the first 500 ft coaster and take back the title from Kingda Ka so all the CP fanboys will stop writing them letters ;)

bgw, make sure you have your coaster facts in order before you post ;)

they would need to add 80 feet, not 60 to reach 500.

when i was on *********, that is what jeff wrote on a topic. TTD will be closed for the next 7 weeks so they can add to the tower, and add the extra 80 feet.

this isnt no joke.they was working on the part where it launches.must be a break or something.does anyone know what it was.and no they are not adding to it cause they will have to take apart the tower and put in bigger motors.heck they have to redo it and tear it down and rebuild it cause its too much for the breaks to handle.i know its a joke them adding to it but if they was this is what may be done.

You know, as a whole, the entire joke was really stupid. It was a crappy attempt to point fun out of something that you really couldnt've. Stop trying to be Kraken.

Anyway, next time I talk with my good buddy working at Cedar Point I will ask him whats going on with TTD. He told me yesterday (6/14/05) that TTD was indeed down. So we should look for any signs.

I have read that they were doing preventive maintanance on the launch sled. The bottom of the sled is a Tefflon like plastic that gets worn off with each launch. So to prevent problems they replaced the piece or that is what I have gatherd around the net. Looking at the web cam it looks like TTD is testing as people are lined up at the gate for it. And it says on the status page that it is expected to operate.

I'll bet what was seen during Coastermania was a fairly routine replacememnt of catch car brakes.
