You said you appologized for him posting arrogant messages? Why don't you take a whiff of what your shoveling, pal. I'd rather believe someone that is an employee with proof that he is (ie, In park pictures) then somebody who comes out of nowhere and shoots his mouth off... Plus, 95% and maybe more of the structuring is done and 50% and maybe more tracking... From what I know about woodies, tracking doesn't take much time (don't get me wrong, I know it takes a while) but not as long as one might think... At least, thats what I've been told. Oh and Robert (Hey Jupiter) if there is any left over wood that isn't used, I'd like some to carve some drum sticks out of, LoL... Hey, could you please get some shots of the cars next time? From what I'm told the are "firey teal" with different colored stripes on them (gold, pink and more teal)? and that the lead car is a diff. color, but the rest are the same or something... Any clarification? Great!

I would just like to say that I know Robert, not personally, but I know of him. He has never worked a day at Six Flags-St. Louis. He was just hired in a few weeks ago. I however, have worked at the park for three years now. I work in the Boss' area. I can tell you that the ride is not 95% done. And I can also tell you that no one has said the ride will be open on the fifteenth. No one (with any importance) at the park has given any date for the coaster's opening. Robert has posted false information before, sometimes using other people's names. I would not trust any information you get from him.

Just my honest opinion. I agree with whoever tore him a new a**hole. This kid is at the top of the sh*tlist of the director of operations at Flags. That is why he'll never be in ops. He is not a reliable source.

Another SFSL OPERATIONS employee and no one but employees can join us for the EMPLOYEE spring premiere, where we WILL most likely be riding Batman, not an unfinished Boss.

Okay, I am confused... Well, not really.. I dunno who to believe or who to applogize to... When do you think Boss will be open, because I plan on attending the day it opens, so are there any estimates on time? What ride do you operate? I am not saying other ride ops are mean, but I've always found that whoever operates the Eagle are the most courteous... Well, other then the Boss, is anything else going in to officially say something? AT said there was gunna be a Zierer and rumors of the topspin is on site, so if Rob has been posting b/s, please settle this for me

PS- In no way did I make for these statements to be rude or sarchastic, just curious questions from a curious coaster addict

Believe me, not Robert. There is NO Zierer family coaster. I know Robert has posted about that in the past. There is none. Period.

If you read any of the posts about the Boss from today's SFSL season pass holders who got processed today, they let us all know that the Boss isn't done.

Training has begun at the park. All the ride testing is complete, as far as I know, except for the Boss (since it isn't finished), and Go-Karts (since they can't get to the track until the coaster is finished). While we were training today, we were invited over to Dragon's Wing where two of the supervisors in that area were kind enough to let all of us fly.

From the top of the 150 foot tower, I got a great view of the coaster...and I still do not believe it is 95% done. They are working on it day and night, though. It will probably be done in a week or two. Then they will have to test it. As I said before, I doubt it will open before the park goes to full time operation in mid-may. All I can say is that when testing begins, I'll let you know on URC and RRC.

P.S. while I have worked at Eagle, I have to be honest, one of the rudest employees in the park happens to work there, but I guess you never ran into him. However, I do work in that area, that's all i'm saying.
