  1. I think that we should call it by its proper name: The McCluskey Chevrolet Fast Lane.
  2. As a patron, do you not accept all risk and liability of said Boo Fest when you purchase your ticket/pass and walk in the gate?
  3. I don't understand how this helps anything. If I start in line with my group of friends we will all have the proper numbers, but at any point during my wait I could just leave and come back and still have the ticket to give to the employee. Tell me if I am missing something.
  4. That makes sense, but it seems to me if the crew is not flying the lift will be crawling. Sent from my SM-T210R using Tapatalk
  5. I thought that we decided we were going to refer to them as the driver.
  6. It looks like that might just be right.
  7. As for the way Kings Island does it, as I worked Diamondback and often was at co-dispatch (that green button near row 16), we were trained to not hit that button until the driver (yes Driver beep beep!!) gave the all clear. I'm pretty sure the button being pressed down on (HTCO can clear this up for me as he worked at Diamondback more recent than I have) doesn't let the panel know the button is pressed. The driver's dispatch buttons and the co-dispatch has to be pressed at the same time or within 3-5 seconds (can't remember) in order to dispatch the train or the ride would set up. It didn't wo
  8. I concur, but it is just something that I have picked up over the season, that I worked there.
  9. I believe that in theory this will work, it'll be cool to see. I just have a hard time beliving that they have a higher therotical capacity then Diamondback. It just seems that the restriants are a lot more simple and quick over at Diamondback.
  10. I would like to know how the co-dispatch is going to set-up. Because the entire load side appears to be a blind spot for the driver. Does anyone know how they set it up for similar Beemer's?
  11. I wonder if the trains got lost on their way here. They are running a little late. They should be here any day now right?
  12. I believe that the lift chain motor is already installed. I could be wrong though it wouldn't be the first nor the last time.
  13. I completely agree, if there is going to be a policy then it has to be enforced 100%. I have sat in front of Firehawk telling people they can't bring their stuff and the moment you are trying to explain it to one group of guests another flies right past you. Then the issue becomes chase them down and let the next group of 5 get though or let them go and hope for the best. It may be tough on staffing but I don't think two greeters is such a bad idea.
