^He's talking about the track that goes over the track shown in the 2nd video, not the track behind the tree. Unless I'm mistaken, that track is part of the 1st video clip, immediately after that launch.

EDIT!

Two more MS Painted screen shots for your viewing pleasure.

This is the section of track in question from the 2nd video.

As you can see in this shot from the 1st video, the section of track in question is the climb after the launch in the first video. I've also pointed out the track from the 2nd video for reference. Hope that helps!

I figured that.. if you just look at the background of both videos you can plainly see that they are the same distances of track in opposite directions.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

im not talking about either. There is a straight vertical piece that shows up 4 seconds into the video that isnt behind the tree or a support. Kind of looks like a tall light post or something. I was just wondering.

I see what you're talking about, but I don't know what it is. It just looks like a stick in the ground in the distance. It could be a tree or a light post. But I'm not sure at all.

I had to look up the movie and then I felt like an idiot for not remembering.

Today, Colin and I had the chance to visit Busch Gardens Tampa Bay to take part in the Howl-O-Scream media day. During this fantastic event, we were given a brief taste of what this year's event has to offer--sheer thrills and scares, brought on by the new leading lady, Slyvie of the hit band, myX.

Special thanks to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay for providing us with some excellent preview photos from this year's previews, and for putting together a truly spectacular event for everyone. The official photos will be posted first, followed by photos we took during our day at the park and during the preview event.

The most unique addition to this year's Howl-O-Scream lineup comes in the form of "Alone," a brand new house concept meant to pluck guests out of the comfort of a group walkthru, forcing them to go it alone (or with a small group of no more than three accompanying) through the maze.

Here are the "deets."

Ah, the scream cam! BGW strapped one of those to my chest a few years back. It was a bulkier model, and I could hardly see where I was going.

Looks like a great media day, Adam. Still have all your fingers?

Adam, you seemed more afraid of Sylvie than anything in the maze.

Feeling the urge to tell us all something? ;)
