  1. Question: why not make the first drop go all the way to the ground?
  2. The Big Red Machine - a ground-up RMC on The Vortex plot of land....
  3. I wish the safety brakes would be retrofitted (or supplemented) with some magnetic brakes. Would make that stop way less painful, and would probably cut down the friction brake wear.
  4. If you haven’t heard, there will be a new sports complex opening in Hamilton in late 2021. Spooky Nook Sports Hamilton will be the second Spooky Nook location, after one in PA. This complex will become the largest indoor sports complex in North America upon completion, over 700,000sf. Here are a few links outlining the project: https://www.spookynooksports.com/hamilton https://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2018/10/26/spooky-nook-hamilton-butler-county-sports-complex/1772078002/ Just recently, the steel for the pre-engineered metal buildings began to arrive- with foundations and steel erection to follow. https://www.journal-news.com/business/newest-signal-spooky-nook-progress-hamilton-truckloads-steel/GjJFEDDtjULbZuoKIMu5iL/ The facility will also contain a full size restaurant, rock climbing walls, and a sizable arcade.
  5. The crane that was next to the lift hill is now disassembled in the parking lot and in the process of being transported out.
  6. It was SO COLD. It felt far colder than Mystic in the snow if you ask me.
  7. iPhone in my pocket wired to a cheap lav mic, used different placements to get the "alternates".
  8. Over the last few weeks that Vortex was open, I made some audio recordings of different parts of the ride. There was quite a bit of background noise in many of them, so I did my best to filter it out. I also converted all the files over to Apple Ringtone format (.m4r) so that they can be used as text/ringtones. I love having the station bell as my default text tone. Includes: Lift Ambient + Alternate Lift Ascension (in-car) + Alternate Lift Block Clear (bell) Train Stopped in C brakes (bell) Ready Brakes Opening Station Brakes + Alternate Here is the link: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1ifinL5Jen_6C6Kwy2OvD-hV---jMsx1b?usp=sharing Hope you enjoy!
  9. Today’s perk.... 50% off fudge. I have never had the park’s fudge before.
  10. What time did you go? I went around 8pm and found it abysmal compared to last year. I had to ask several times to get more desserts brought out, and I never got to try the turkey. The Macaroni was probably the most disappointing thing to me- incredibly dry and tasteless. Once the dessert did get brought out, the lemon bars and the key lime pie were both very good. I’m hoping that next weekend some of the kinks are worked out and I will try it again.
  11. As much as I would love for this to happen, I just don’t see it. It would make more sense for the next ride station to take on the same architectural style- the current station is nearing 40 years old and isn’t in the best shape, especially the roof. RMC I-box is wider than the Arrow track, so it would take some serious work to get that to fit in there, not to mention the low clearance underneath the track for mechanical equipment. I hope they prove me wrong, but it will be a sad day when the station comes down.
  12. Whatever track was in that photo is not the storage track or the transfer track.
