Official Grizzly Topic
I was on El Dorado yesterday and looked off and saw all of the wood laying around for the Grizzly. I cannot wait to see how this ride will turn out once they finish track work on the ride. It looks like they are working on the rough turns and the tunnel needed replacing as well.

I am happy with life

Grizzly is scheduled to be down till early May is what I heard. No specified date of opening has been announced just yet. From what I hear they are retracking all of the rough curve sections and doing work on the tunnel that is falling apart. You wouldn't want a board to fall on a guest while they fly through the tunnel, that would not be good.

Retracking and Refurb is not routine maintence, I miss the Grizzly,
hopefully you are right about the date. Does anyone know who is doing the retracking? Gravity Group, GCI, Intamin?

it was commented on earlier that it was being done by the park, and on a wooden coaster retracking is a annual maintenance task

^ If you have seen KD's website before they're hardly ever update it, heck the notice saying they were retracking ti didn't go up till half way through April.
