  1. Face/Off's (Invertigo) old red and yellow colors sure attracted a LOT of Cicadas back in 2008
  2. About Elevation 766 at the Eiffel Tower and 750-ish near the new coaster drop
  3. Sidebar Ad in Chrome.....Orange Crush?
  4. 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.”

  8. 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!
  9. 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.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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)
  13. 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?
  14. No was not suggesting that, just giving some clarification on what the date on the drawings mean. Its possible -- but not likely -- that the electrical designer may have had outdated information. Since the finished pieces started showing up early this spring at CSF, the shop drawings were probably approved late in 2018.
  15. The electrical drawings were an In-progress print dated 5/8/19 and were generated for an electrical permit submittal and approval only. (Likewise for the station area and lift footing permit submission as well ). The base information shown was current on 5/8/19 and was deemed complete enough to submit for electrical approval from the City of Mason. That does not mean the underlying design was complete - and it could possibly change. Since they are fabricating the steel currently, then the design for the version shown on the 5/8/19 drawings most likely is correct since the shop drawings would have had to been produced a while ago. What is unknown and to fuel the fire further, is if the electrical designer had the most current information available for their drawings dated 5/8/19? Would it make a substantive difference on the electrical design if the lift hill is 10 feet higher? (No) For the foundation design and submittal? (Yes) Keep in mind that the permit approval process is Proof of Concept only and a review of compliance with local and/or national electrical and building codes. I am not sure the City has jurisdiction over the vertical construction, that may well rest with the State Department of Agriculture.
