  1. Not for long.... Zeus is being raised right now!!!
  2. I can confirm that he is in the front parking lot helping with Clifford. Sorry for the blurry picture. Best I could do from the drop off lane with my phone.
  3. They're lifting the piece of transfer track into place!!!
  4. Having designed cranes of this type (although not this size), I can say that these cranes capacities are more about the ft-lb rating than the lifting capacity, which is what is discussed above.
  5. I believe the confusion is coming from the terminology. The past few days, the booms have been retracted, not “lowered”. I know it seems like a picky detail, but in this case, it does matter.
  6. Crane has pulled back!! First piece of track is set!!
  7. I as far as I can tell, the most common standard referenced for coaster safety (actually, all amusement rides) is ASTM F 2291, Standard Practice for Design of Amusement Rides and Devices. There is also an ISO standard, ISO 17824-1:2015, Safety of Amusement Rides and Amusement Devices -- Part 1: Design and Manufacture. These two standards provide the guidelines for ensuring rides are safe.
  8. I agree that tomorrow's clue will most likely be speed. However, I seem to remember the operators always saying that Delirium is the "fastest ride" in the park. So, maybe they go there, rather than going back to Diamondback.
  9. My guess is that, similar to what they did with the Diamondback clue, they will state what record the ET holds that Project X will break. Something along the lines of: Since it opened in 1972, the ET has been the highest point guests can reach at 275 feet. That is about to change....
