  1. Appreciate the feedback guys! I submitted a Playlist of projects I've been on, but havent cut an official reel which I'm now resolving (its tricky because some clients don't like the work I did for them being shared outside the official material). My biggest concern is not having the ability to resubmit any new applications like with past jobs I've had. I'm gonna work to resolve issues with a demo reel and will look into HR for future questions.
  2. Hey guys, I recently applied for a motion graphic artist position that opened at the park and this morning saw that I was reviewed and declined. In the past I've applied for other positions as well with the same result. For the current position I'm not sure if it was the result of not having a demo reel that I personally cut together or not (They requested a YouTube link for a demo reel, but I don't personally have a reel, just a playlist of projects ive been involved with). Is there a way I am able to re apply for a position like this if I do cut together a demo reel, or is there any way I ca
  3. I've always loved the idea of Haunt Walk around characters, more characters that are special to the park like the undertaker heckler.
  4. There was a large truck parked down one team near the right most circle that night too with what looked like some wire tubes or something so that sounds about right.
  5. Little map update, this is where i saw the markers while out at work. Pretty sure its no big deal, a shuttle route of sorts would be the most major thing i would expect.
  6. Hey just wanted to update you guys, I clean the parking lot perimeter at the park and found markers all the way out across from tropical plunge down to 1 team way along the roadside. (No pictures though I like to keep my phone away at work)
  7. I love the amount or red caged lights showing up on the buildings, and the signs look great! The sculpted logos and raised text looks great, the whole area really looks to be coming together.
  8. Oh wow, i really love that Bat teaser art, never seen it before! I might take some time here and try to restore it as a poster!
  9. I just painted this Boo Blasters Poster for its 10th year at the park, and because its well, the greatest ride of all time.
  10. Agreed, worst case scenario we may see some things like future expansions pushed in date, or events being cut back (although not removed) in a bit to make up for things (Like haunt)
  11. If openings get pushed back i think its for the best. I personally would rather avoid going to the park (Or any of my planned park road trips) until i hear more positive news about the containment and control of things. While i dont see it completely going away this year, i would hope for things to start being contained after a few months. Its a hard call living just about 10 minutes from the park, but with my downtown classes being moved online and my girlfriends work preparing for working remotely i think its got the best to buckle down and be safe and keep informed.
  12. Assuming that these are not the official lighting package lights (Maybe maintenance lights since you would need them to light things up safely) I think it would be really cool if there are LEDs running the lift like Fury, but instead of being a solid line the light up animated from top to bottom to create a meteor shower effect
  13. Pretty sure its just cameras, the strobe warning is on all other rides with photos.
  14. I've seen what the cup bits look like (have seen bits from someone who has access to the site though i wont name names since i don't know if they should or not) and that's real. They just cleanly trimmed up the ends from one of the cut parts (you would just need some good cutting tools and like you said taking some time)
  15. Man I wish that picture was just a little more to the right so we can see the clearance on the maybe headchopper. But that's crazy low to the ground there!
  16. Thanks Don, cant wait to see the full time lapse!
  17. It looks like we have a train on the track!
  18. Im down for another angle of the park when it comes back up! I live nearby and would always use the Diamondback cam to determine how crowds looked by the ride line before heading over.
  19. Assuming another track piece is added to attach to the support today
  20. I just got the same thing, I actually almost bought one last visit but they didnt have my size so it's a good deal!
  21. Considering we are likely adding the queue from Firehawk to FoF, I wonder if the old pilot entrance for Firehawk will stay and be updated with signage for FoF
  22. My girlfriend and I have stayed at a few places on our trips up this year. With budget in mind here is our current rundown in order of our favorite to least: Motel 6 In Milan: This one was our favorite, the price is good and the rooms seemed to be more recently renovated. They also have a working Fridge and Microwave in the rooms. (The rooms also have an interesting 60s aesthetic and hardwood floors) Super 8 Motel in Milan: This is across the street from the Motel 6. The rooms here were nice as well. bottom floor has a back door to the rooms too which is nice for quick loading and un
  23. Hey guys, curious is anyone knows if Carowinds sells embroidered ride patches in their gift shops like Kings Island and Cedar Point have. My Girlfriend and i might be making a trip down during october and iv'e been collecting ride patches for a coaster jacket and cant find evidence of them online anywhere.
