  1. DB's lift sits on land at elevation of 756 (source: https://webmap.co.warren.oh.us/wcgis/auditor/) Orion's lift sits on about 746/748 (so roughly 10 feet lower --- unless they re-graded the land any)
  2. The cams are down, so they are down. Its just a coincidence that its at the same time as the lift hill erection and KI is not hiding anything. Recall they said construction was actually ahead of schedule due to the dry weather, so when KI had the planned outage of the cams for Winterfest preparation they probably assumed the bulk of the lift hill would be being placed after Winterfest prep on ET is done and the cams are back up. So no one in their right mind would tell the contractor (any contractor) to hold off a bit on the erection a week so it can be captured on the webcams --- any ammunition for the contractor to file a claim for delay later should be avoided at all costs. To the comments that the contractors do not like being watched by the cameras? they absolutely do not care. The real watchers are on site and the construction is being well-documented. If they screw up during the erection process --- in comes OSHA (EDIT: The park probably wants more folks to buy 2020 passes after 10/27 when the prices go up, so that is what the lift hill topping was pegged for early Nov)
  3. Face/Off's (Invertigo) old red and yellow colors sure attracted a LOT of Cicadas back in 2008
  4. About Elevation 766 at the Eiffel Tower and 750-ish near the new coaster drop
  5. Sidebar Ad in Chrome.....Orange Crush?
  6. Leonard Bernstein, Leonid Brezhnev, Lenny Bruce and Lester Bangs are all referenced in It's the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine) https://genius.com/Rem-its-the-end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it-and-i-feel-fine-lyrics#note-2791162 Stipe once described a dream that he’d had about being at a party where everyone in the room is a famous person with the initials L.B. Explaining this song to Q magazine in 1992, Stipe said: “The words come from everywhere. I’m extremely aware of everything around me, whether I am in a sleeping state, awake, dream state or just in day to day life. There’s a part that came from a dream where I was at Lester Bangs' birthday party and I was the only person there whose initials weren’t L.B. So there was Lenny Bruce, Leonid Brezhnev, Leonard Bernstein. So that ended up in the song along with a lot of stuff I’d seen when I was flipping TV channels. It’s a collection of streams of consciousness.”

  10. R.E.M.: The other night I dreamt of knives, Continental drift divide. Mountains sit in a line Leonard Bernstein. Homer: Leonid What's-His-Name, Herman Munster, motorcade, Birthday party, Cheetos, Pogo sticks and lemonade, Symbiotic stupid jerks, That's right, Flanders, I am talkin' about you!
  11. the Drawings were submitted for review and approval for building permit and electrical permit (and code compliance) only. On the development side of things, (minor) changes can and do happen after plan review and permit issuance, as long as they do not violate the Code or any Conditions of the granted permit or zoning approval. That being said, I do not think the City of Mason has jurisdiction over the ride and/or vertical construction -- that may rest solely with the Ohio Department of Agriculture.
  12. I think the sequence # is referring to the order of the ride opening. That being said, then Vortex poster might be corrected from VI to IV since that would be an honest mistake I - TBD II - TBD III - Bayern Curve - 1973 IV - (Vortex - 1987) V - Flight of Fear -1996 VI - TBD VII - Invertego - 1999 VIII - TBD IX - Firehawk - 2007 X - TBD XI - TBD
  13. The sequence numbering will be be the order the Test was done (e.g. when the ride was installed). I would expect 2 rides installed prior to Bayran Curve to be sequence 1 and 2. ....Bethca one of those will be Zodiac
  14. Since the applied-for trademarks seem to involve spaceflight themes, maybe the teasers will be tied-into the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11? (Launch Date July 16, 1969, Moonwalk on July 21, 1969) Neil Armstrong was part of Astronaut Group 2, in project Gemini (pronounced /ˈdʒɛmɪni/, rhyming with knee ) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NASA_Astronaut_Group_2 (announced on September 17, 1962) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Gemini Gemini 8 (VIII) was Armstrong's 1st spaceflight and the mission conducted the first docking of two spacecraft in orbit, but suffered the first critical in-space system failure of a U.S. spacecraft which threatened the lives of the astronauts and required an immediate abort of the mission. The crew was returned to Earth safely https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gemini_8 (Edit - Gemini is not one of the applied-for trademarks - Whooops! but its interesting reading nonetheless)
  15. A question I probably should know the answer too --- Soak City opens at 11am, do they let pass holders in 1/2 hour early at 10:30?
