Mountain Coaster opening??

Has anyone heard when the Mountain Coaster will be up and running? We'll be there the first week in August. I'm hoping it will be open by then. I'm super excited to ride!

The last I heard (a couple of days ago) they would be open in July. So, if that comes to pass you should be good to go for August..

Current plan is to open mid-July, no official date yet though since a lot of the outdoor work still depends on the notoriously fickle weather.

Here's an update on the mountain coaster from the 7/12 Branson Tri-Lakes News:

Opening still planned for late July/early August. Weather has prevented parking lot work.

I've read the articles, looked at the pics over the last few months, something I've wondered, you can only ride one way so how you get back to the top? walk?

The track makes a loop--you get in your cart at the bottom and it's pulled up to the top of the hill via cable, like the first hill on a regular coaster. Then you're released and you've got gravity the rest of the way. Only walk is from the parking lot to the ticket windows.
