^ Aw seriously?! I know it doesn't affect the ride, but aesthetically, steel supports on wooden coasters are just so eh!

 

EDIT: I don't know if I spelled "aesthetically" correct as there were no other suggestions for it in the spell check lol

When there are no recommendations, you either spelled it right, or you are so far off the computer says, "I can't even help you, man."

Just back from the park and noticed that now in Griffons Station they have a new flat screen with the countdown for each train along with the harness status to help speed up the loaders. There was a supervisor standing on the exit bridge writing down information. Not sure if this is a new thing but seemed to help out with dispatches off all 3 trains not that griffon really had a capacity issue or op issue

 

Valravn had this same setup as well and it really seemed to help the ops get the trains out fast.

I went with Red Shield logo for two reasons: I like the color red and it won't clash with the blue color of Le Scoot.

 

Speaking about Le Scoot, I did love the axes they added inside the sawmill. It shows the love Busch Gardens have in preserving their log flume attraction.

Had a question for anyone out there can give me insight about Apollos Chariot, last night before close the break at the top of the hill slowed the train along with the trim break after the mid-course I have ridden Apollo every visit and never had these 2 trim breaks engage during my ride anyone have any idea why?

The ride is designed with a maximum speed in mind(at various points on course). If it's exceeding that speed the brakes will engage. The trim after the sixth drop usually only kicks in on really warm (fast) days. Never heard of the one at the top of the lift being used but I would guess that the sensors registered abnormally fast speeds on hills one and two.

I wouldn't say that it's because of Kings Dominion. InvadR is supposed to be a family-oriented ride, so Kings Dominion is still more of a thrill park/traditional amusement park. A lot of enthusiasts go to both, a lot of locals go to both, and everyone else would go to one of the other, because they're completely different. One new attraction (or lack thereof) won't make a difference to families wanting a more Disney-style theme park for vacation or a family wanting large flat rides and more coasters.

Busch Gardens is getting a huge increase in attendance next year. Not only because of Invadr, but because of Kings Dominion taking an L and deciding to add a couple kiddie rides as their giant announcement.

 

 

Yeah, because we all know that the majority of guests troll theme parks and their websites waiting for new ride announcements and then base their future visits on that.

Take a look at the backlash the park is getting.

Where do you see backlash, the internet, where everyone complains. Can you prove that everyone complaining will result in less income for Kings Dominion and more income for Busch Gardens? NO YOU CANNOT. Backlash will not be determined until the cash is counted. You really need to refrain from posting for a while.
