I'm also wondering how often they have to sweep it out and how long that takes? The leaves will be falling really soon so near the end of the season that might be something they have to deal with.


Yes, they have drains through out the ride. I'm trying to find a picture I took when we get a backstage tour of the ride. But it does have some many drains.

I wonder if this would have been better than the Mack version? Steel and fiberglass.

I took a screenshot of a video I filmed backstage two years ago on New Hotness. You can get an idea of what the drains look like.

^Well, I think Orphan Rocker is closer to being scrap metal than ever actually opening at this point.

Well, I guess I can offically stop calling it "Lying Turds" and call it "Flying Turns"! I bet that this will go into the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest time it took to construct a coaster to opening day. May a record like that never be broken! :|

I don't think Guinness (or the rest of the world) cares about a record like this.
