^It has multiple places it can valley. It can valley before the first drop in that little helix right after the first lift. It can also valley in the helix at the end of the ride, or the in the straightaway shortly before the final helix.

The valley was the straight away right before the final helix. If you're standing in the station the ride is coming directly at you before turning.

I'm surprises me the ride vallying didn't make national headline news.

"Dozens Helplessly Trapped on High Thrill Roller Coaster." Throw in the word 'evacuated' at least six times in all of the print.

That was the most fun part of the ride for me. We were in the front row, so I screamed in horror at the queue
as we barreled towards it. They got a good laugh out of it, as did I. :smile:

If you're asking what's normally in that shed, it's the transfer track, train storage and where maintenance is performed on the trains.

If you're asking for the Haunt version of the shed, it's just some cheesy lights and maybe some music. Basically poking fun at Mystic Timbers. It was cute.
