Mach Tower at BGE still not open?
Are you kidding me? When I went in June I was told it was expected to be up and running in 2-3 weeks.
Looks like they'll have 2 new rides next year, that is unless Verbolten doesn't open until 2013!
Apparently its open now
Can someone explain to me what a "soft opening" is? I found a few articles that stated that. See one below:

I believe it basically means they'll open something a bit before the GRAND opening, to people that are in the park, without anything other than maybe an in-park announcement. Kinda like they used to sometimes do with the flicks. Others can probably expand on this or correct me.
El Toro had a "soft" opening in 2006. I went to SFGAdv on an early June weekday. The coaster wasn't supposed to be open yet. As we walked over to check it out, we saw a train was running with people in it.
We went over to find the queue to be pretty full and one train operation. But we waited anyway. After waiting two hours, we finally loaded in the back. It blew me away, and I was glad I was there that day.
Anyway, I guess that's a good example of a soft opening - running the ride for guests before the official grand opening.
Thanks for the info. I had never heard of that term before.
