P. 766: Haunt Has Risen from the Grave

Recommended Posts

 

But the 'W' looks weird with vertical lines, rather than angled ones, like in this picture:

I was gonna say something, but didn't bother 'cuz it doesn't bother me--the W is totally an upside-down M. Design choice or...?

 

EXACTLY. . to my eye, it looks like the placement is off.

 

The Art Director in me (I have a degree from University of Texas), totally thinks that the "Twisted" needs to be shifted to the right a bit. . so that the bottom of the "T" will line up with the "I" in Timbers.

 

what that would accomplish is make the "W" in Twisted, mirror the "M" in Timbers. .and be much more pleasing to the eye.

 

that the W & the M look so similar, makes me wonder if that was the original intention?

that's got to be a bad design choice, or the sign company mistake and trying to pass it off without correcting it, imo.

Wow. They're really going all out with the theme on this ride.

 

I mean... so far they made a sign that says the name of the ride in plain, Helvetica font and out it on the roof of a rectangular metal building.

Look at the bottom left of the FB picture... they're building a pretty substantial faux-brick entrance there, and apparently some covered structures in that pavilion area as well.

 

Thank you, that's what I was referring to. The station is still a bit of an eyesore but from what I can see, the new entrance looks great.

According to the park, the ride has already developed a rattle.

 

Oh god... I can already hear the complaints rolling in... "Did you notice the rattle on Twisted Timbers?? I know its new... but I could feel it... Now that I think about it I felt the same thing on New Texas Giant, Iron Rattler, and Outlaw Run."

I was already thinking the cars will look good in real life, seeing the vid I'm thinking the truck front isn't very big. Extreme closeups import no sense of scale. Looking at the video and scrolling twitter, delicious.

 

I think people will be able to find it with that sign .. Would they flip a "T" at the last minute?

It’s getting a paint job.

Fastlane question here for the KD locals and regulars.

 

Does KD offer the perk for Platinum Pass holders to purchase the FL+ band for the FL price in park?

 

I've searched through most of KD's website and have found no mention of this discount perk for the pass. I know it's offered at CP and until very recently not advertised on the website as well.

 

Thanks in advanced for any help!

^^Possible, the Pass discount is usually 10% off merch and food. Whereas the Pass discount is the FL+ for the FL price which can be a pretty significant discount at Point with their FL prices. I believe it usually works out to be a 20-30% discount depending on the day.

 

Guess I'll find out soon enough when the park opens and people start going in a month!

Are the crowds going to be horrible on the 24th? I’ve seen KD get through trains pretty well.

 

I was at KD for i305's Opening Day (Friday and Saturday). Crowds we not terrible but several rides were closed both days and Volcano, Backlot, and Grizzly were all running one train. Granted that was 8 years ago now, so who knows it might be different this year.
