Holiday World (HW) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

After construction is complete I'm going to miss the Hard Hat Chronicles! Does any other park put this kind of time in for their fans?

 

As far as Thunderbird its self... Well the animations just did not do this thing justice from what I see so far. I also know there is still lots of work to be done on the theming but the animation didn't do that justice either. The station and the barns look so so so much better in real life, and I thought the animation was amazing. I have a feeling that HW and B&M are going to hit it out of the park with this one in every way....more than any one expected.

I timed the launch from the video (which can be misleading due to frame-rate time compression), but it looks like the test launch was just less than 3 seconds. A half second longer than originally advertised. That adds, assuming all other factors constant, about 0.1G of force to the launch, which makes a difference.

 

A longer launch means less force (per unit time), not more.

That's what I said...the launch in the test run appears faster (shorter in duration over the same distance) than the animation and shorter than the originally announced 3.5 seconds so therefore the real life launch appears to be more forceful than originally anticipated (about 0.1G greater when calculated out).

I think this is what confused people

I can't believe the irony... it seems like I've been waiting all winter for Thunderbird to Launch and my 2015 Subaru STi to get here from Japan. Without trying to be a super nerd, it's awesome that when I first drove my STi home, Thunderbird was launching in Indiana for the first time! Maybe this is a good sign.

And with that type of car, I'm sure you got home rather quickly

Not to mention how many tickets he got on the way home. I do not want to know what he pays for insurance each month! lol

Paula,

 

Will we ever find out what those blue-prints were that the girls teased on the Holiblog? I believe they were going to some event to show off what Will had originally envisioned...

 

Or did a few people play a joke on me and the only blue-prints were from Thunderbird?

 

Note: Those documents/blue-prints the girls had their hands on was strangely long and thin...

 

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

I don't get tickets... but I do occasionally write them.

They moved the camera back to the launch track and immelmann. Hopefully we'll see some more tests done soon!

 

Right before they switched the views on the camera, I was a minute off from seeing the train go through the Inline Twist, twice! Both times I pulled up the webcam as the train was rolling into the station.

I don't think they should post a full POV test video, in my opinion. The one we have is just enough of a tease to keep everyone excited until opening day. It'll be more exciting when we actually ride it if we "Leave something to the imagination" as my father would say (albeit in a completely different context).

^ Oh they know what they're doing, HW's the best at this type of stuff. They're going to give it to us in little bits and pieces. We won't get the full thing until Media Day. It's actually quite smart, as this will ensure that there is always talk and speculation about T-Bird all the way up until it opens.
