Even in 2 train mode a lot of the time train returning to station is waiting for other train to dispatch.  There just not very fast in loading trains.

Pretty much standard operations this season from my observations.

From what I've observed and experienced on Saturdays, stacking trains has been about 50/50 overall this year.

Good point sometimes they load just fine, but rest of time dead slow.

That's kinda offensive to the dead, as I've seen some corpses move faster! lol

I'd love to see Lagoon get a sibling for Colossus (that's what I call it, too bad). Of course it is the only one ever made exactly like it so any newly acquired coaster would be at least slightly different. I rode this looping star and it was great I'd be very surprised but extremely happy if Lagoon got another looping Schwarzkopf.

I like dark rides

That would be challenging since Fire Dragon is a one-of-a-kind.  There are a few other double-loopers out there, but only one with the extra curve in the north carousel (and it's ours... all ours... *evil laugh*)

Pretty easy to find pictures...

It now has a more stationary life, as it operates at Wiener Prater Park in Vienna in the Summer, Octoberfest in Munich in September, and Hyde Park for their Christmas Festival in London.

I hope to get a chance to ride it one day. It looks awesome!
