Left the parks a few minutes ago and noticed that the piece was back in place. We went Monday and it was off and this morning, it was re-installed so things are moving along. Have a picture on my camera but I'm posting from my Iphone so...

Which piece? The top piece or the entire lift?

DH was there almost till closing and said the piece was still missing when he left. He took photos of that and also of the Rip Ride Rockit merchandise store, which is OPEN!! I was at home, so he brought me home a Rip Ride Rockit t-shirt. He got one for himself and put it on, then headed to SeaWorld on his way home and wore it while riding Manta. Here's the link to the photos: ***************/a8ctE (he also took one of the brakes from underneath).

I'm real sorry to say that either I viewed it wrong or during the day it came back down. When my wife, daughter and I were walking in this morning, I know I saw the missing 90 degree down rail from the top in place but when returning tonight for a last ride or two, it was missing.

I'm sorry to have caused misinformation. When my wife and I looked over from the parking/entrance/beltway people movers, it immediately looked different. They were working very hard on the front stage area today too.

I'm going to restrain my happy dance till I hear (or hopefully see) that they're testing multiple trains. Gotta do that before opening.

That's probably too soon...I didn't see the trains out today. I think you're looking at maybe another week before they are ready to start testing let alone open it for soft openings. But...you never know.
