<p>This massive roller coaster opened two days ago. It opened late today, around 2 p.m., and our wait was about an hour and a half with one train running.<br />
<br />
It's great! The course is taken quickly, there are no dull moments, the elements are totally different, and there are several areas with great airtime. Kennywood has a real winner here.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/plj007/">Phil Johnson II</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>With all the heavy steel work done, workers are now putting the finishing touches on the area below Steel Curtain.  The opening date for this ride is July 13 and you-know-who will absolutely be there....along with thousands of other coaster lovers.  I may need anxiety meds to deal with the heavy crowds that day.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/plj007/">Phil Johnson II</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>Employees doing some rather fun looking training on SkyCoaster.  I'm sure they're praying for a lack of stiff breezes as Steel Curtain (the big yellow thing on the left) would certainly win that collision.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/plj007/">Phil Johnson II</a> posted a photo:</p>

<p>I didn't really notice, until a couple test shots, just how very complimentary the cloud formation was to the overall scene.  I messed around with the transform tool in lightroom to exaggerate the angles and to better use the lines of clouds.</p>			<p><a href="https://www.flickr.com/people/plj007/">Phil Johnson II</a> posted a photo:</p>
