Here the front of the train looks pretty much orange, but if you zoom in, it has a honeycomb pattern to it. I still prefer the Cheetos train myself.


Thats because its not the actual train.

they only got back up to 1.5 million people in 2017.


Source????? Maybe with the free ticket promotion for concert ticket holders it inflated their numbers... but I find this **REALLY** hard to believe that they had anything even that close to 1999 numbers.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Yeahhhh...I get that it's just a crappy photo-shopped job of another Eurofighter. The part that the coaster isn't completely built and hasn't ran a train yet kind of clued me in on that. :lol:

Still....Cheetos train for the win!

Wikipedia, actually, and I was also (pleasantly) surprised myself: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darien_Lake

I mean, there's not necessarily a guarantee that it's correct, but the site as a whole does have an accuracy greater than Encyclopedia Britannica.
