  1. In the boneyard (as of last year) there was.... 3 Original SOB PSV trains 2 Non Looping SOB trains (red and blue) 3 Geauga Lake Villian trains 1 Geauga Lake Raging Wolf Bob train. You can see them on satellite images
  2. That Beast themeing tho at 11:33 in the video.
  3. Along with, Carowinds, Valley Fair, Michigan's Adventure, Great America. Which all been updated to the new CF website style.
  4. The entire midway from Racer to WindSeeker received pavers in 2011.
  5. Have you thought about Waldameer vs Michigan's Adventure? https://rcdb.com/4646.htm I much prefer it over MIA and its only 2.5hrs away from Cedar Point. Don't even think about comparing Kennywood to a Cedar Fair or corporate company. Don't go just for the coasters, the park has a very unique charm about it which is why I rank it so highly. As to get a rollback on TTD, I thought it only roll-backed typically during the beginning and end of the season when the weather is colder in the morning.
  6. What department did you apply for?
  7. Make it look like 2009 again please and not 2001
  8. 5 Aggressive Thrill Rides Rides that generally have one or more of the following: high speeds and/or heights, aggressive and unexpected forces, and rapid directional or elevation change. Riders will encounter many unexpected rapid changes in speed, direction and/or elevation. https://www.visitkingsisland.com/images/uploads/file/GAG 2016(4).pdf Thus why Adventure Express is a level 5.
  9. Did anyone of you ride FOF this season? Mid season until closing day it flew through the MCBR hardly stopping. But what do I know
  10. Of course, you would simply ease into spieling on mics. Don't let something as small as spieling hold you back. Its very intimidating at first but you quickly find its not bad at all. Working at the park is truly a unique experience, everyday is different and always full of excitement and energy. For those who showed an interest in the Rides Department feel free to message me with any more in-depth questions. I'd be more than happy to get you on that path.
  11. lol at this new kic

  12. Less souvenir bottles = less chances for the bottles to spill in the ride bins on the platforms. #efficiency
  13. Speaking of direct sunlight, the first thing that comes to my mind is .... the "Harness Stable"
  14. Great PTR, The Vortex crew really enjoys when you come and visit.
  15. I'm actually visiting here in a matter of weeks. wow http://www.9news.com.au/national/2016/10/25/15/48/reports-of-at-least-one-dead-in-serious-dreamworld-ride-accident/?ocid=9newsgcfb
  16. Sorry this response was delayed- sadly no, but thankfully the 2 other posters showed of the Flight of Fear and Mystic Timbers ones. Son of Beast didn't have a box like that, the reference to it is that where The "Beast Canyon Mining Co." sign usually is (at the main entrance above the soda machines), it said Outpost 5 Mining Co. (or something similar) instead. Outpost 5 was the secret government area where, in storyline, Son of Beast was being held I believe the Son of Beast crate is in the entrance plaza and The Beast crate to the right of the queue bridge, FOF and Mystic are to the left
  17. The "Brake Shed" was never a "block" or a place trains could stop at. Lift 2 however was divided into 2 block zones, one block being from bottom of the lift to 2/3 of the way up and the other block zone being 2/3 of the way up to crest of lift 2. Thus you could send a train over lift 1 with a train about to crest lift 2. Indeed
  18. There is sometimes where operators will stop Banshee at the top of the lift hill, (right when the scream is triggered) and then move the train again causing the scream to go off once more. A double scream is what they called it (also said they usually do it during haunt) As for music. It's probably something that you just couldn't hear due to the loud train, and other noises going on. (When I last heard the audio this year, It sounded quite quiet to me.) The operators don't do this, the ride system auto stop because of blocking. Nope, The operators do purposely do this somet

  20. The tacky lasers from Spencers gifts? I think someone threw those away.
  21. Yes you can ride Skyflyer solo, (I recommend it, the drop is better) and yes you have to pull the ripcord. Slingshot you must ride with someone.
  22. I would still ride Jurassic Park River Adventure, if you wish to stay dry.... ask any store for a large plastic bag and put it on your lap during the ride and hold up a park map for the drop. Works every time oh and Row 4
