  1. They have been there at least a year, maybe two. And they aren't trims. Correct, they're part of the emergency stop system if a train needs to be evacuated on the lift hill.
  2. Being part Nuclear Engineer major I know the Chernobyl disaster quite well, one of the most fascinating things from the entire disaster was the special ops team they deployed to the roof top to clean the exploded graphite and debris off down to the ground for bulldozers to clean up. Needless to say, those men's lives didn't last much longer past that night but truly an incredible story to say the least.
  3. I think it's so funny this is the most land escavation they've done at Dorney for how many years, and it's for a pavilion
  4. Just when I didn't think the internet could become more stupid, I just saw an argument where someone was persistent in thinking that Maverick will be removed since it is a sub-par coaster compared to the RMC Meanstreak. I'm sorry, what?
  5. Haha always have to appreciate the new ride season though, all the newbies know the specifics!
  6. UGH all this Wicked Cyclone talk makes me miss it even more right now. Just an incredible design
  7. I have two home parks so... Hersheypark 1) Skyrush 2) Storm Runner 3) Lightning Racer 4) Great Bear 5) Fahrenheit 6) Laff Trakk 7) SDL 8) Wild Cat 9) Comet 10) Wild Mouse 11) Sidewinder 12) Coco-Cruiser 13) Trailblazer (honestly awful one trick pony) Six Flags New England 1) Wicked Cyclone 2) Superman 3) Batman 4) Thunderbolt 5) Pandemonium 6) Gotham City 7) Mind Eraser 8) Flashback 9) Catwomans Whip 10) Goliath (since I haven't even got to ride it...)
  8. I still think Banshee is one of the more beautiful coasters out there
  9. Always thought it looked awesome with the whole setting it sits in. Great video!
  10. To be fair (barring Mean Streak somehow being a 2017 attraction), right now the 3 biggest coasters coming to the U.S. next year are this, another mid sized GCI and a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter thing at the Jersey Shore. It's really not even much of an underdog... there's basically no competition here. Very true actually. As of now it would be the 2nd best most likely
  11. I think InvadR is going to be one of the underdogs this year that makes a big impact. The theming is going to be incredible and should provide a nice ride with the tunnels and ride interaction
  12. Very unfortunate it is to remain closed until further notice. It is just very mind boggling that the building permit can be terminated that easily. Is that how it is in the US too?
  13. Very disturbing but I am sure it will be resolved much like the first time. Speaking of which isnt this similar to the issue the first time?
  14. Looks like some great additions once again. Dollywood is certainly stepping up their game.
  15. I am glad you two have been converted to Skyrush lovers! Welcome to the club!
  16. Interesting. So the monorail will no longer go out of the park downtown?
  17. Maverick, next to a RMC....is incomprehensible, until this opens While it appears Outlaw Run and Goliath both use I-Box on their transfer tables, and all I got pictures of were straight pieces..I suppose it could be possible to be topper, but then look at the track connectors after the transfer area. Those are typically used on I-Box. ^Also that would be the storage track which is different than any of the normal track. Honestly my bet is set on Iron Streak
  18. I feel like I'm slapping god in the face living a little over an hour from the park and I have never been
  19. From what I have heard (don't quote me on this part), the cable is replaced once every year. If that's true it would be much more frequent than the average Sky Ride (but maybe it is, you would know the ride better than I would). Generally parks wait about ten years before they replace them. I kind of remember watching it a few years ago on the webcam (because I'm a huge dork) it was laying down across the main midway with pieces of wood (or what looked like wood) under it for the length of the cable to keep it off the ground. I'd love to see how they splice it. Yes Bill was close! Cedar Point usually changes it out after about 7yrs. It also has the frayed cable detection system as mentioned that can detect any issues.
  20. With the success RMC has had with Outlaw Run at SDC, I wouldn't put the possibility of it being a T-Rex coaster...Okay more like I want it to be but we can all dream
  21. You think predicting events at an amusement will get you laid? If this is true for you, hide the women you care about from TPR. Me currently
  22. ^Hello! Since Skyride is not in operation during Haunt we didn't get to see it functioning but yes the counter weight is very impressive! It is funny how they used actual nuts and bolts to weigh it down also very cool how the wheel must maintain its position in order for the cable tension to fit the "wire loop" so to speak! Seriously learned so much especially all the Dragster information was mostly new.
