So this weekend is the last for the Bob and I decided to go 2 days instead of my usual 1.
The park has been cutting trees down near the ride and this gives a whole new look on the Bob.
The station of the Bob that will be reused for Max and Moritz.
This really opens up the place. Looks very strange.
Just felt like making these.
Clear look the lift from every angle.
While the Trees where beautiful in the experience of the ride without them the ride looks more beautiful.
People where queuing up for a last ride.
One from the single rider queue.
When it rains the ride stops and it was for me a reason to call it a day. Tomorrow are the last rounds of this rare ride and I will be there.Edit (9-9-2019):
Pictures from 9-1-2019 Closing day:
Prep work was done.
Flag hangin on the operator booth with opening and closing date.
Lots of traffic jams at the exit.
As a T-Shirt collector I was happy with this shirt.
These little flags where handed to people all day, there where moments no bob left without everybody waving them around. At the end of the day the track was full of them.
A not so good onride shot, but if you look at the inside of the turn you might see a couple of flags.
Without the trees this is how open it looked.
For my last ride I took the regular queue to see the decorations for the last day.
As I was waiting for my last ride it broke down for a minute or two, it just had to happen the last day.
Red carpet at the exit as the ride was getting ready to close down.
Half an hour before the regular queue closed the single rider queue already was shut.
My last picture of the ride.
A small gathering before the queue got closed for good.
Closing the gate.
And the end of the Bob 1985 - 2019
A small party was going on near the exit when the queue was closed.
