  1. have they always had the street view from inside the park?
  2. Yeah I reported it for sure after the ride. Everyone around me was panicking as well. I guess they have some sort of safety device or something to re engage the locks or something at the top.
  3. I did think I was going to die once on Vortex. We were going up the lift hill when all the sudden my shoulder restraint popped up. This was in the days before seat belts.

  8. Anyone have any other old photos to add?
  9. Its the off season so I figured I would bring this back out for anyone who might have missed them this spring.
  10. Thanks for the questions! Below are Thursday's Top 5@5. Q: Damon Barnes - What made you decide to add midnight closings this year? I think they are great for teens and adults! A: Damon, the midnight closings were quite popular with our guests last year. It gives our guests an additional two hours for night rides on thrill rides such as The Beast, Diamondback, Vortex and Delirium. It's also a great deal for our guests that chose to visit the park after 5pm. --------------------------- Q: Tony Douglass - Is there a great possibility that by the end of this month we will know what the repl
