Anyone at the park today to see if all the rides are open?

Everytime I've ridden Cannibal this season (once a week for nearly the entire season so far) the Curtain in the station hasn't worked for at least a month, if not longer, to my recollection. I'm sure there is a perfectly reasonable explaination as to why it is not working, be that waiting on a replacement part, or something else. I can only imagine how much more power is being spent to keep the interior of the tower cool when there is a big open door at the bottom.

Do the Co-gens come on automatic with loss of power?

Really good point about the A/C that I didn't even think of.

Yes. I've heard a story about BomBora in 2011 or 2012 when the operator at controls called the Rides Office to let them know they just noticed the Co-Gen was running and were informed the park was suffering from a loss of power. The operators apperently didn't notice or experience an interruption in power.

Just out of curiosity, why are you guys calling the generators co-gen rather than e-gen? Is Lagoon doing something with the generators to get the co-gen designation rather than simply using them as emergency power?

It seems as though Lagoon is using the term "Co-Gen" for the large generators, as the Co-Gen Plant is no longer operating. The smaller generators are still referred to as "Emergency Generators."
