Baffled... optical illusion?

Recommended Posts

So, ever since I saw this pic and then in person, my OCD has kicked into high gear.  I was wondering if it was just me, or can others see it?

Is the logo on the Mystic Timbers shed crooked?

It looks like the words are actually horizontal, but the shed itself is sloped downhill like any other coaster brake run. Since the words and the shed aren't parallel, it makes the words seem crooked.

Technically, the shed is crooked one here, haha.

+1. I work on this ride and the station and break run are actually sloped to move the train forward by gravity. The words are level with the ground but as stated before the shed is the Crooked one

The slope of the shed and track is a given... but what baffled me is it actually gives the effect that the logo is not only crooked, but false.  Being more specific - it makes pictures of it seem as though the name was photo shopped onto the shot.  LOL

I cant tell you... my OCD absolutely cannot handle it!

I wonder why they just didn't line the logo up with the shed? It would've fit with the whole "old abandoned lumber mill" theme.  It could've been like at one point everything was straight and level, including the shed, but over time it has settled and now it's sloped a bit.  The fact that the shed is sloped but the logo is level with the ground, just makes it look like it was done intentionally and looks weird.  I think it would've been less noticeable if the logo was crooked with the shed.

To be completely honest, when I first saw the picture I thought it WAS photo shopped

I am the one who took that picture. I can confirm it is not photoshopped.  Lol

Just because the track inside the shed is sloped doesn't meant the shed had to be from a technical standpoint.   There are plenty of squared buildings that house coas track at angles.   KI clearly wanted it like this and is not likely to change it.
