I'm glad the Orbit is reopening. Keep us posted on anything new and improved for the new season and congratulations on working another season at this great park.

I'm glad it's opening again as well, I can't really see why they'd want to shut down a ride like "Enterprise" anyway as they are usually VERY popular....

orbit needs to be open the day the park begins the 2007 year. this is one of the best original rides! While they're at it.... reopen stealth and tidal wave. Man has this park gone downhill.

I saw that the sheet was revised/printed in December, and one of the rides listed on it was The Orbit as part of the Vortex and Flying Eagles group. I'm being optimistic, but I think it'll reopen.

Can't wait until the season starts March 31st!! By the way, I work at Logger's Run/Endeavor!
I bet you my Demon crew could destroy the Santa Clara crew in an 1hour capacity game.

What is this, a competition? I bet your park could win in capacity for Demon because you guys run three trains at a time. Santa Clara only runs two. But, our Logger's crew could woop on yours!

Demon ran two trains all of 2006. Red train was in rehab all season.

"I hated the Orbit. Always puked when I got off it. :?"

Funny. I hate spinning rides, but I loved Orbit.

I don't mean loved in the "It's gone so we can talk in the past" meaning, I just haven't been on it in years.

I hope to ride it again...

YES! I thought they were going to remove it. But it's still there! I can't wait to ride it again. It's been over a whole year since I last rode Orbit.

Yeah, I noticed. But I guess I'll keep it cause PGA brings back lots of great memories for me. Just like everyone who has Marriott related screen names.
