  1. Yep, agreed. Vortex was painted throughout the beginning of the 2002 season. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  2. For anyone interested, that channel also posted the upscaled POV of The Beast. Notice the skid brakes. Pinch brakes were added in the next off season, while magnetic trims came about during August of 2002. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  3. The heavyweight class Premier trains didn't help over time, either. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  4. This is by far the best video of Son of Beast out there. Thanks so much for sharing this. The video says 2002 but I'm thinking this was more likely 2001 for a couple reasons. 1. The trim brake has been removed prior to the rose bowl and 2. King Cobra is still standing. I know removal of KC lasted into the start of the 2002 season but I believe it had been partially removed by opening day. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  5. Excuse my ignorance, but what does NDT stand for? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  6. $198 is too much to justify. I promised myself I'd get a piece should they ever come available, but it just doesn't make sense. Vortex will always have a special place in my heart, whether I have a piece of it or not. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  7. A custom spin off of Intamin's 10 inversion coaster would be nice. No quad heartline roll though, they can do better than that. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  8. https://rcdb.com/17725.htm There's a new Mack Xtreme Spinner opening next year. Where does it say that SDC (or Herschend Family Entertainment) has exclusive rights to it? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  9. I always thought that the area taken up by Boo Blasters would be a great fit for a mouse. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  10. 1620 yesterday. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  11. As far as the rattle after the hammerhead turn, wasn't that where track was removed and filled with sand this past off season? Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  12. Stand up. I'm not kidding. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  13. Next time you ride Diamondback in an outside seat, look down at the wheel bogey on that car directly in front of you. During an airtime hill, that thing is shaking like crazy, leading me to believe the wheels have something to do with it. If you stand under DB's lift and watch a train go back, the up stops don't spin as they aren't connected to the track unless in a moment of g-forces less than 1. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  14. Right...I know there was a big discount involved. Never heard free. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
  15. I would say 99 percent of people are wearing their mask. Most of them are wearing it properly as well. Staff and security has been great about enforcement in my 4 visits this year. Social distancing in line is inconsistent, but no one is on top of each other. With rides that have switchbacks in their lines, you run into the "good thing the virus can't move sideways" issue, but it's not awful. Sent from my SM-N960U using Tapatalk
