Windseeker & Coney Mall Construction Continues


Recommended Posts

This girl in my class claims that she has rode this ride. She says that she works games and that since she works there that she gets to ride it before everyone else. She also said that she rode a two weeks ago. For one, i don't think it's even been cleared to the public to run. For two, serious testing just started yesterday. I know there is no way she has rode it... it's impossible... Obviously. But I just wanted to make sure that it is... Before i rip on her ;)

Did she ride it before all the seats were on?

Did she by chance ride it via youtube?

If she is a park employee she needs to be careful when making statements like these. She could lose her job over this if management finds out about it. And yes, it is impossible for her to have ridden the ride already. Humans aren't allowed to ride until the state clears it and as far as I know humans + water dummies are not allowed riding the ride at the same time. (waiting for a joke to be made)

Don't know any rules, but wasn't there a video of people riding Timberliners on voyage with water dummies also on the train.

Not sure about that, never saw it. It may be different when it comes to different parks. But from what I remember being told when Diamondback was going through testing that was the case. Things may have changed!

It's nice to see WindSeeker testing today!

Thanks for that TombRaiderFTW. I find it interesting that they were allowed to ride with water dummies. Of course the ride was already operational and commissioned. I don't see KI letting someone ride with water dummies on a ride that hasn't been deemed operational and commissioned by the state. Could be a CF policy or state policy, if a policy at all.

Well I don't know who the other was, but a Koch was riding. I assume you might be able to get past laws if you legally own the ride.

The "other" would be Mike Graham of The Gravity Group. The Gravity Group designed The Voyage. As far as ownership making you above the law... I know no facts, but I'm doubtful that's the case.

In the state of Ohio, the ride does not have to be certified by the Department of Agriculture in order for park employees to ride.

Yep, and we have had the pleasure of doing such a thing before.
