Here is a shot of the High Roller's Control Panel at The Stratosphere.

This was once the World's Highest Roller Coaster.
Built by S&MC and Premier.
Opened 4/29/1996 and closed on 12/30/2005

Super simple coaster to operate, switches for the loading and unloading gates, and advance buttons from Load/Unload and an E-Stop.
Everything under the glass panel was for maintenance in manual mode.

Phantom's Revenge at Kennywood.

What it looked like before IOE redid it for the 2017 season. Auto-spiel buttons can be seen to the left.

Shiny, new, and very simplified for the 2017 season after IOE came and made it much better!

Train times, from leaving the lift to the brakes in the "Course" column. 46-47 seconds is normal for a warm, full train. Those ones in the 50s are empty test runs.

I was suggested to drop in a update on Wildcat at Frontier City. The park has replaced the coasters control panel. I happened to notice it while waiting to board the ride. Other parts of the park other rides have had upgrades to their control panels. Some are brand new. This weekend I'll try and get photos to post on here for you. Here is Wildcat's new Control Panel thanks to Six Flags. Showing they care about the rides at Frontier City.
