    I just made a donkey in No Limits!

  1. I was wondering is anybody else caught that! Hopefully a park gets a hold of this so we can work for them! I would love to mix my two great passions, video and coasters.
  2. It landed on the grass between the fence and the pathway on the Millennium side of the ride. It was a typical everyday phone, nothing fancy! But it opened up and worked just fine! Another guest came up and took it back to the station. Thanks everybody! Happy to share!
  3. Hey guys! My girlfriend and I made a stop to Cedar Point for closing weekend October 29th and 30th. Halloweekends was super fun as always. We really had a blast! We were in the area in between shoots so we had all our gear with us to shoot some video! I hope you enjoy the unique twist that we pulled with this video. And you can also see someone lose their cell phone at 2:30 I didn't notice it while I was shooting but it turns out it landed just a few feet away from me. It still worked Enjoy!!! Cedar Point // Slooooooooow ^^^Video link, click to watch!
  4. The D90 is great! I'm definitely glad I made the switch to SLR a couple years back. It's really been a lot of fun to experiment with all the different options available. I'm actually looking to buy a Canon 7D and 5DMarkII this winter. My mother and I shoot wedding videos ( www.capturesinframes.com ) on the side and we're really interested in the video capabilities in the new SLRs. You're absolutely right about the skill set required by the photographer. An SLR is simply a fancy point and shoot until you go into manual mode and begin to understand what exposure, shutter speed, f-stop, and
  5. Patriot really is an awesome ride. It's definitely the smoothest invert I can recall. That zero-g is just perfect from any seat. LOVE it! WoF has really taken care of that ride. Nosferatu, thanks! I shoot with a Nikon D40 18-55mm and 55-200mm lenses. Both are super cheap and slow I shoot in RAW and then edit to taste. Glad you enjoyed them!
  6. Thanks! I forgot to post one photo of this girls face, priceless!
  7. It's been over a year since I've gone to a park other than my home park so I was really anxious to get out for once. We left St. Louis around 5am and got to Worlds of Fun at 9am. Gas for $2.56 in Boonesville MO! Once the park opened we headed for Prowler. When we got there, however, the line attendant told us that maintenance had yet to run their safties. We headed for Mamba, same story. Being that it was opening weekend, I understand that it happens but it was still a little annoying. They ended up running one train on all coasters for the entire day. Mamba had one train on its transf
  8. Cool link of a recent tour of the abandoned SFNO site, check it out! MOD EDIT: As this is clearly trepassing and the creator of the website knows it based on the following quote, I have to delete the link and lock this thread. Urban explorers first have to find a way into this forsaken park and then they risk their necks out of curiosity. In one case, after sneaking in and then back out, some of the explorers were handcuffed by the waiting cops and the film was destroyed.
  9. I know Disney World has apartments for interns but I'm not sure if they're open to seasonal employees. They may be just for the interns.
  10. Ahh, never heard it called that until now. Thanks! That would make sense, we last visited in September. I wouldn't doubt that it takes a GREAT deal of time to set everything up. It must be fun to flip the switch! Hah, Griswold's. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qc_RYm0ylA
  11. Mystery Mine was very fun at night. It was very neat dropping down the final drop and then roaring into the barrel roll at night. The trestle section was cool as well. The themeing has a very neat atmosphere at night as well. Kinda adds to the whole creepy effect. Thunderhead was the real treat though. Riding Thunderhead at night was a completely new experience. The section after the station fly-through where it heads over by the first drop is absolutely pitch black, very cool. It's such a well built and maintained ride, a real gem. I'm not sure how often the park is open after the s
  12. Thanks guys! I believe this is the second year that the park has had a Christmas event. They really pulled it off well for being such a new event. Nothing as grand as Silver Dollar City or Dollywood. But the event definitely feels right at home at Beech Bend. I didn't really pay too much attention to what was open, but I didn't see any ride ops at Power Surge when I walked by it. I know that the rides that are opened varies each night so it may have just been a fluke that it wasn't open. All I can say for sure that was open was Rumbler, the kiddie drop tower near the petting zoo, the
  13. So my girlfriend, Jenni, and I decided in early December that this year we wanted to try and go to some parks that offer Christmas events. We thought about Silver Dollar City, but it didn't seem like enough of a getaway being only 5 hours away from our home near St. Louis. Our next option was Dollywood, as we got into it for free for working at Six Flags. Then I got to thinking and realized Beech Bend was practically on the way! Our first weekend pick was the weekend before Christmas. We invited a few friends, but a couple days before we left, things fell through, money got tight, and everyone
