I will be checking in to BWV on 9/29 for 4 nights. I suspect the IG will be a mess
but it will be fun to be there for the Grand Opening. I might even take a ride....

We check-out late the 29th, but I will make a point to ride it at least once.

Castmembers with Hollywood Studios shifts are testing them today before or after their shift. Unfortunately it was shuttered due to wind....temporarily and with an hour wait.
Fast pass please?

Has this threshold been published? It will be interesting to see how often this happens.

Well good idea to use volunteer castmembers to test the threshold.... I say that with respect for castmembers. Remember this is still trial and testing for extreme safety and caution. Certainly would not want any problems during the initial stages.
I admit it makes me wish Disneyland would bring back the open bucket version inside the parks. I know we will never see that unless it was an open screened version.

I am still hoping for a soft opening as we are there the 19th - 23rd. I would make arrangements to just get a quick ride before we left.

Will be at BWV the 27th to Oct 4. We can check it out! Not sure I want to ride them though

Do they go to CSR and the new tower there where Toledo is? Just googled and nope they don't.

Opening the first full day for our trip.

Will the wait to get on be longer than Smugglers Run?

No.

The routes are:
CBR <-> AoA/POP
CBR <-> DHS
CBR <-> IG via Riviera

They are three separate lines that all terminate at CBR. If CBR is not your final destination, you will need to exit the gondola and transfer to the appropriate line.

Riviera is a pass through station, so you can remain on if not your final destination.
