The article is dated today, and it refers to Tuesday, but I dunno whether it's removal is taking place today or NEXT Tuesday.

And yes, Jen, I KNOW the article calls it the Jet-Star. Let's not open that can of worms again, 'K? :)

*EDIT*..according to a brief article in today's NY Daily News, it is indeed NEXT Tuesday, the 21st, for removal to begin

So I guess the article from the Daily News was wrong. Oh, well.

Okay, seeing how I just got home from work and that live video Drachen posted is dark now, I'm confused. Are the taking it out now or not?

As do the actual owners, who were about to have it's name legally changed this season, as I have proven. :-P

Jet Star time lapsed removal video by GoYanks34 GoYanks34 Profile at 5/17/13 9:43:30 AM
Here's a time lapse video by Casino Pier (and the owners of the coaster are still calling it the Jet Star as they always did).

Pretty cool.
