  1. Well I guess I'm missing that by a day. I'll be at the park tomorrow (Sunday).
  2. King's Dominion 7 pm fireworks Not just Carowinds Bigger problem
  3. That's actually one of the really nice things about a cellular Apple Watch (or whichever flavor of Android smart watch). You don't have to have your phone with you but you can still send and receive calls and texts. And it's easy to keep conversations brief ("Sorry I can't really talk, I'm on my watch..."). Plus you don't have to deal with loose article policies.
  4. I have been the one person running a coaster by themselves. It's not easy, but definitely doable on an early season weekday at a park.
  5. Well Timber Terror and Tremors are both open right now, so there must not be much damage.
  6. Some people might've been open to close, others might work just a morning or evening, others still might have a split shift. Some people on the crew will need to be in earlier than others to clean/test cycle/etc, but not necessarily the entire opening shift. Same at close. Either way, to me sounds a lot more like cost saving measures than for the sake of the employee's sleep schedule. But, decisions like this aren't made lightly and generally happen for a variety of reasons. So it might've been brought up as a way to save on labor but also serves to help keep employees longer, maybe retain some who would otherwise not come back, help clear out the park sooner, etc.
  7. I can say with a great deal of confidence that that was not full speed off the lift, nor will it stay that speed. That’s the first time it’s ever gone around the track.
  8. To be fair, they already have a ride named Barnstormer that's plane themed.
  9. RMC's fiberglass is done by a local (to RMC) shop just down the road from RMC (and of course, Silverwood). It would make sense to send them directly to Silverwood and have them ready for the trains when they arrive.
  10. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but based on that drawing, the only building being built is over the storage tracks. Not the station. The station is listed as "Future Building".
  11. Well, I can't tell you what different coasters might have the most, but I can tell you that the ASTM F24 standards that cover Amusement Rides and Attractions set the maximum force in the -Z direction (out of the seat) is 1.5Gs. This is generally the number that restraint systems are designed to withstand.
  12. I think that makes it more of a wooden coaster than a wooden coaster. Because topper track is one steel rectangle bolted on top, instead of 3 steel rectangles bolted on 3 sides of the wood.
