Mini report! Was down again for the weekend and got up early AF Sunday morning to head to the beach for sunrise. Got this wicked pano from atop one of the lifeguard stands.

I was only on the piers for about 2 hours Saturday afternoon. In that time I did IT a half dozen times, Kong & Great White once a piece and the Screamin' Swing 4 times, had 1 slice of Macks and 1 small mint+chocolate twist from Kohr. Saw absolutely no signs of life from Runaway Tram. It's kind of super lame but oh well.

OK soooo I'm pretty sure they reprogrammed the cycle on IT to make it run even longer. Good god. After 3 consecutive cycles, IT broke, so I rode Kong once and then stalked maintenance over at IT until IT reopened. As soon as IT was back up I walked over and right on the ride, and while I thought they'd make me wait for more riders to show up, they just loaded me and sent me up alone. My first ever zen ride, awesome stuff. Got another 2 rides before it developed a short line and I moved on.

Lunch. Macks was very busy, as it should be.

One more sunrise shot from Sunday morning. Sounds like I'll be back in two weeks!

Nice report!

Sucks about Runaway Tram. Really doesn't seem like the type of ride that should get delayed as much as it has.

I still can't believe you actually went to the beach. Proud of you...

PS: That last shot is insane. If that's not in the calendar then WTF are you even doing?

You should be proud. I had to take not one but to showers Sunday to convince myself I'd cleaned all the sand out of my toes. *shudders*

^ :lmao: Isn't the point of a boardwalk so you can be next to the ocean and not get sand in your toes?

Great photos, btw.

Out of curiosity, does "it" often breakdown? I remember it breaking down a few times the one time I went to Morey's.

But that's crazy to hear they made an already awesome frisbee even better.

In my experience, yes. But isn't that generally a prerequisite for most kick-ass rides?

It was down a good chunk of the season last year (including the entire weekend Bill & Brit visited, but they got on this year). They did do some refurb this last off season in addition to the new paint/LEDs, and it seems a bit more reliable this year, but almost every visit this season its broken on me once. They get it back up and running pretty quickly though so I always do something else nearby and come back.

It sh*t itself mid-cycle a few years ago while we were on it apparently but I uh... don't remember much about that experience (or anything that happened that afternoon). :lol:
