  1. That green engine is the unnamed train that we got from Disney. We just call it the Davenport, it came to us from Knott's a few years ago and the superintendent had converted it from fuel fired to coal fired and then got it ready to be ran on our tracks. We were doing boiler washes on the other two trains and didn't feel like running George, so we fired up the Davenport and ran it while doing boiler washes on Judy and 22. So it's just our 4th and rarely used engine.
  2. Don't get me started about how CP has a MUCH better railroad. There are not many parks that can boast about still using coal and owning trains that were not designed for the park but has previous jobs before running around the park. I don't want to start an argument with you Greg, because you know way more than I do, but CP's train is in a whole different league, along with Dollywood's.
  3. From what I've heard, and seen, the old existing freeway lines aren't fully being used. They are bypassing people even further up to the station on MF and TTD. Mean Streak will go under the station and around to the base of the stairs. Raptor will use the existing Freeway, Magnum might. The thing I'm finding crazy is that you can rent the DA birthday pavilion without paying for entrance to the park. They will escort your group to the pavilion and let you play in DA and then escort you back out.
  4. I just want a refurbed Twins. I enjoyed that ride and as mentioned earlier, could be great with Timberliners
  5. Glad that my Shivering Timbers is still in the top 25. Doesn't run like it used to, but still such a good ride. More people need to get up there and ride it.
  6. Not to be rude, but they are mainly just pictures of Sandusky and the bay. Nothing is really visible but the skyline and there is nothing that interesting about it. Sorry, but it may just be because I can look out my back window and see the same thing.
  7. Done. Thunderhead Boulder Dash Shivering Timbers ^^ It's always good to see some love for Shivering Timbers. First coaster I ever worked
  8. Cedar Fair sent one of Cedar Point's engines, Jennie K, to Knott's to get refurbished. Wish they would actually refurbish it and send it back. Judy K and 22 are fun, and the Davenport will be fun this summer, but I'd rather have Jennie back.
  9. Almost $31 million!?!?! That's crazy expensive for this.
  10. DA makes sense at KI because a typical family can ride almost everything in a single day and may have some extra time for DA. At CP, the typical family is able to ride a few rides because the lines are so long and will not have that extra time, now will want to replace a ride on Millennium Force with a $5 up-charge walk-through. Detroit, Cleveland, Toledo, Columbus, they are the demographic audience for Cedar Point. They aren't doing too well financially, especially the first two. They just raised ticket prices to $50 and I am counting on a parking hike up to $12, there is no way a family that just got done spending $9 per burger basket for each member of the family is going to dish out ANOTHER $5 for DA. Just IMO. How much do you wanna bet that they will try and sell "3D glasses" for $1.
  11. I was actually gonna mention this, glad I read through the post. I would have loved for a hyper to be at MiA.
  12. I was a Team Leader on Maverick and we would get "Ride Prides" from colleges on the weekends at the end of the year. We would give them as much training as a regular employee that starts in the middle of the season. Before being trained on their specific rides, they also have to watch the same videos we watch and complete the same checklists and drug tests. If a TL is not comfortable with how a individual is doing, there are less safety heavy positions we can put them. Plus, at least at CP, they are not allowed to use buttons on coasters, so no enables for them. Also with Maverick, with a Ride Pride on each non button position, that still leaves 3 actual employees to watch there every move. I'm not familiar with DL's training methods, but usually if someone doesn't cut it on a coaster, they get moved to a flat or kids area, or in CP's case, sweeps.
  13. Millennium Force uses no legged dummies with no lap bar. Best Picture I Could Find
