  1. @DonHelbig does this mean my wish is coming true?!
  2. If they made a chain grease scented candle I'd buy it.
  3. Those went fast. Less than 5 minutes to sell out.
  4. I am SO excited to have a Schwarzkopf looper so close. The closest one currently would be Sooperdooperlooper.
  5. How about a ~135' GCI Titan Track with a infinity flyers, chain lift, 95° Drop, midcourse LSM boost, and 3 inversions?
  6. Maybe you are right. I definitely want to see it in the daylight tomorrow to tell if it’s actually new track or not.
  7. The new machines were gone today. Perhaps we will see them permanently installed next season throughout the park or chain.
  8. Honestly I would love to see a (ground-up) RMC family coaster.
  9. Disagree. Just rode twice and there was only one section of about 15 feet that was new- the dip in the helix.
  10. It appears that the park is testing new metal detectors at the front gate today. They look to be the Express model by Evolv Technology, and allow security screenings to take place fluidly and without bag checks. Traffic was flowing much faster through the security checkpoint using these new machines. https://evolvtechnology.com/products/evolv-express/ Have you been to the park and experienced the new screening process?
  11. I don't think the engineering was primarily to blame- Stengel (and company) went on to design the Intamin pre-fab wooden coasters. Seems like it was really just RCCA's horrendous accuracy and material quality that made it so rough. You can see pretty clearly in that POV (For example, 0:18) where the track just doesn't look quite... right; like they didn't have the best handle on how to fluidly fabricate curves.
  12. The ride ran test cycles all day today, with water dummies in every other row.
