I have heard about re-tracking done in recent years which is why I was soo surprised at the rough ride our group experienced. We rode on a very hot day for october. Maybe the roughest moment we hit was a transition between old track to new track, or vice versa IDK. I'm glad they are making an effort but I wonder if separating the years of track re-work is less effective then a full off-season re-track. Another factor are probably the PTC trains. I expect, and look forward to getting beaten up by a Grizzly bear every trip. I'd ideally like to get a different experience from this ride though.
I think you hit it on a bad day. I don't find it rough. It's pretty smooth, with some bumpiness on the return trip (I believe where it has not been retracked yet). Even that is really not bad at all, at least not the times I've ridden it. I agree they should have done a full retracking in one go.
