  1. Tatsu! The pretzel loop on that and Manta at Sea World Orlando are probably the most intense elments Ive heard about or had the pleasure to ever experience on a coater(in the back).
  2. Ive turned in a fair share of smokers and most are just asked to put them out and move on unfortunately.
  3. It is wisteria vine and I would believe is heavily pruned to keep it in check as it can grow off shoots off the main vine upwards of 10 feet in a season. I would hope it is the native vine vs the Chinese one as that one is almost as bad as kuduz as far as invasives are concerned.
  4. This seems to be the active Orion thread, I shot the fireworks from the Area 72 plaza with Orion in the foreground... looked amazing and was LOUD(awesome)!
  5. My son and I make an appearance in the Thrills United video around 13-14 mins. I dont think I quite articulated what I wanted to as we got put on the spot, so fire away at will. We will be doing one of our own later today.
  6. The lights are not bright, but their color has a high intensity close to the source with what looks to be dramatic fall off as you move away from ride. I dont think it should detract from The Beast experience but quite possibly add to it with that almost atmospheric glow light filtering through the trees. It should be noticable at the first hill, and the run through the brake shed. I guess we will see how folks feel about it. I say all that with 2 additional points. 1. Light is invisible to the eye unless it has something to reflect off of for us to see it. It will have a to
  7. It does look that way in the sequence seen from out front. It did not seem to be the case when I was viewing from Great Wolf Lodge’s berm out back. Last night the multicolored sequence didn’t seem to last very long and it was that along with the primarily white/blue.
  8. Orion has a new look this evening.
  9. Fingers faster than my mind, CGI of course(or I’m just too deep into this coaster enthusiast thing...)
  10. I don’t think Banshee or DB has that bad of a rattle, they are not in the same class as Kumba, Rugaroo, Kraken, or Dominator.
  11. Poorly translated or received sarcasm. Ergo, I digress...
  12. Looks rough... Yes, I know it’s the camera in the mount getting thrown about on a light train; but I didn’t get much out of it that the GCI rendering did not already show save for the on ride camera.
  13. It’s bright, but it’s really not that bright. Being a blue LED light, it’s visible wavelengths are not the best at transmitting a distance(short and intense, I guess like Orion). It is better suited up close and has more of a “bloom” or “atmospheric” look. If it was white, yellow, orange or something like that with the same lumens/candlepower it would be a different story. As an aside, I wouldn’t be too surprised if that strip can be programmed RGB with different color outputs(think those bulbs on the Effie tower during winterfest). While it’s possible, I don’t think it’s likely(a pi
  14. No worries and thanks! I was trying to be funny and it wouldn’t load the .gif for me, therefore losing some of its impact.
  15. Yeah... I can’t get the GIF to load... truly I can’t get any respect around here, aka Rodney Dangerfield.
  16. An assist goes to @collin.klopfstein for the IG message of the picture someone took from their house last night. He asked if I was going to go take pictures tomorrow... I was already gone at that point! I was loosely planning on doing a drive by later, but that sure accelerated my movements.
  17. It’s a mpeg off my nikon, which I imported to the phone to upload. It did convert to a .mp4 When I did color correction in the basic iPhone editor.
  18. Let’s see if mine works IMG_8123.MP4
  19. Ok, If I’m wrong I’m wrong then.
  20. Not buying it. Looks like it’s doing the same thing with sun that it was for me when I tried say they were testing them during the day.
  21. Nope, there was a human in the sling.
  22. Congo falls was testing yesterday along with The Bat, Drop Tower and Winderseeker. Oh, so was Xtreme skyflier.
