Actually I don't know, but they look like something someone would stand on if the train were either stuck upside down and needed immediate attention, or maybe the trains at some point in their maintenance cycle would get flipped over intentionally and worked on while inverted.

Fahrenheit does have a lot of rattle for a new coaster, but I love everything about this coaster...other than the rattle. The vertical lift freaks people out right from the start. And that section of track during the transition into the Norwegian loop looks like it could use a little more bracing. Its got a lot of movement. Many people in line are commenting about the track moving. The bunny hop at the end makes for a nice ending.

3 days to go until my trip and I can't wait to try Fahrenheit out for the first time. I really want to find out how it stacks up against the park's other coasters.

Great pics Hanno! Hopefully mine will turn out as great as yours!

BZZZZZT!!! Wrong!

They're just drive tire plates.

First of... sorry for the delay folks.. it's been very busy lately..

 

But there should always be some time to relax a little and "relive" some of the memories of an excellent TPR trip.

 

Time for another update..

Wow, some of these pictures are just ridiculously good! My favorites are the first one of Talon at sunset, and the last pictures of Talon (it may not have come out how you'd hoped, but it's still a VERY cool and interesting angle) and White Water Landing.

 

 

And was that one picture of Steel Force taken from the employee parking lot? How'd you get there?

it's always good to hear that people enjoy the pictures...

 

But there's always an end to something good.. and yes.. in this case.. it';s the final day and therefore the final update for this trip.

 

Hope everybody enjoyed the pictures. I had a blast during this trip and i do hope that the pictures show the amount of fun that is a TPR trip....

 

Anyway..

 

Day 11 Knoebels

For me it did not disappoint at all that day.. I had a blast.. and if i would live closer to this place.. i would go back on a regular base..

I rode Phoenix at least 30 times, it's so hard to split El Toro, Phoenix and Dash for me, they were all such different experiences but all so awesome.

 

Those bumper cars, wow, there's nothing quite like metal on metal collisions, and those GCI guys were totally smashing each other, it was like the Road Warrior with bumper cars.

That was an amazing day! It was so much fun in general. I didn't go on a single ride that wasn't insanely fun that day. Plus their hot waffle ice cream sandwich was soooo good.

 

I'm still suffering from good Twister withdrawals too . So much fun... So many good memories... Thanks everyone it was a ton of fun spending time with you all.

I am more amazed each PTR that I get to see! You had me from about 7:45 PM today. It is now 11:10 PM!!!! This is what I get for catching the report late, huh? I really didn't take any breaks either. There were so many things I wanted to comment on but I will definitely not remember due to the twenty pages and time it took for me to get through it.

 

The pictures were ALL amazing! I especially loved the onride photos on the Hypers! I truly wish that I could get that close to Nitro...but that coaster is pretty out of touch. El Toro is sorta blocked also. You did manage some great shots though! I started to take pics like that since my first pic of my family that I took on the HULK in 2004. The faces were priceless! Since then I always try to capture friends and family on rides. You have given me new perspective with the drive to want to do more! Even if it is people I do not know. You rock! I also take lots and lots of pics when I am out and about. What kind of camera and lens sizes were you using? You made me feel as if I was right there on the trip with everyone. I definitely wish I really was... Maybe one day. OR for a day trip if you all are ever back in my neck of the woods. (NY/NJ)

 

Hanno, thank you so much for taking your time to post everything! I look forward to your next PTR... now only if I can catch it as you are posting it!
