Webcam Outage Discussion

1.  Does the tower have separate power sources for the elevator and lighting since the lighting is additional?

2. Can't they go up the elevator, turn off the power, do what they need to, turn on the power, go down the elevator, etc?

That's a lot of stress on the breakers, so unlikely.

 

I do think it's funny when I go by every morning, there are 4 bright spot lights on the top of the tower, plus the "eyes" are on.  Might be a different power circuit from the uplighting and webcams, but I would think they would want all of the power off, but I'm just an armchair construction individual.

KI has been working on network software/hardware updates that affected the live stream to the internet. Luckily they were able to keep a local feed at the park to make the time laps video. The timing

Any more arguing or not being respectful will result in a week long ban or longer. Take your personal issues off the boards. 

We are fine with everyone having an opinion and being passionate about your thoughts. What we don't want is people arguing back and fourth and going to far. Be respectful of each other. It is oka

There have been several post since the cameras have gone down that have shown construction progress and there will continue to be photos of construction with or without the camera. There’s no need to keep beating this dead horse & flooding this thread complaining & debating about the camera.

Hey. We need to get this thread above 287 pages before the lift hill is topped off...

The cams are down, so they are down. Its just a coincidence that its at the same time as the lift hill erection and KI is not hiding anything. Recall they said construction was actually ahead of schedule due to the dry weather, so when KI had the planned outage of the cams for Winterfest preparation they probably assumed the bulk of the lift hill would be being placed after Winterfest prep on ET is done and the cams are back up. So no one in their right mind would tell the contractor (any contractor) to hold off a bit on the erection a week so it can be captured on the webcams --- any ammunition for the contractor to file a claim for delay later should be avoided at all costs.

To the comments that the contractors do not like being watched by the cameras? they absolutely do not care. The real watchers are on site and the construction is being well-documented.  If they screw up during the erection process --- in comes OSHA

(EDIT:  The park probably wants more folks to buy 2020 passes after 10/27 when the prices go up, so that is what the lift hill topping was pegged for early Nov)

Entitled KI enthusiast: We want a giga!

KI: Orion coming 2020

Entitled KI enthusiast: it's not a real giga.

KI: Starts construction

Entitled KI enthusiast: yes omg let's name cranes.

KI: shuts down webcams

Entitled KI enthusiast: KI dropped the ball...

 

 

SMH your really going to complain over a webcam? The park shut it down for 1 of these 3 reasons.

1. Tower lighting

2. System upgrades

3. Safety

 

Get over it.

 

 

 

 

Who are you to tell us to get over it?  You're no more important than any of us, nor does your opinion matter more.  So stop acting like you are.  Quit worrying about everyone else.

You said wrong information and I am correcting you.  You said "Perhaps the contractor or the builder hated it when they did Fury. I HATE when people are staring across my back when I work."

 

That is my point.

OK. Pat yourself on the back and give yourself a gold star.

Even if the park did make a miscalculation on this, what does this really affect?  How many people outside enthusiasts, which aren't even 1% of their demographics, does this really bother?  

A vast majority of non-enthusiasts are okay with those explanations.  There's a lot of unfounded anger from you guys with this as you really aren't seeing the large picture, mainly because there is no large picture because we're doing all this over a few webcams, which are pretty low on the park's priority list.  I guarantee if you take this to an average person or the media, they'll scoff at the notion.

Well someone has to make sure wrong information doesn't spread like wildfire. So yes thank you I will pat myself on the back. It's not hard to use google btw!

This ****'s hilarious.  

You have those of us who actually pay attention to the construction cam complaining about it, and rightfully so because of the conflicting information we're getting/seeing, and then you have three fly-by posters that very rarely contribute to this thread, complaining about the posters complaining.  Get over it.

Yeah, there's stairs on the Tower.....but its quite a hike up to the top!

And its not like the maintenance crews routinely go up and down stairs all the time.

Oh wait...

I think I made my point in there being a lot of holes in these lie accusations towards the park.  No one can really string all these separate parts together it seems.

You’re not entitled to it and yet your posts are nothing but complaining about it. Some of us don’t post a lot but we read nonetheless.

You're right. This whole thread is a joke. 90% is useless info. Fly by posters huh? You guys crack me up. Taking this way to seriously. Might be best for some of you to get a life, if your so worried about seeing it topped off then drive there.

Okay im literally spelling it out.

They said they needed software updates.

Ive worked for live tv, video studios, music studios. Ive never seen a 6 day update. Kinda weird right... Well shiney grey as Billie Mays once said "WAIT THERES MORE"

They then change the story up to shutting off power. The elevators have been running. The lights at the top of the tower are on. AND NOT JUST THE AVIATION FLASHY LIGHT THING (Six what are those called. Btw) The actual lights. Now i dont know how your electric works but when mines off the lights dont usually come up right.

KI also has a track record of taking cams down of any risk so nothing gets caught on video. This is what i think is happening. But last but not least

we wish the park would just come out and say that. Theres the string you following like a cat now?

I wish I lived close to the park or i'd be there and try to live stream for a bit. The advantage of having unlimited date! If someone wants to contribute who lives closer and go live stream lol I won't be mad at ya!

We will overcome this! #KICSTRONG :lol:

But why are you framing it as 'changing the story'?   Both those events can happen one after the other.  

The park knew they'd shut down the webcams eventually for the tower plans, so they upgraded software before they turned off the power, so they did and said they did both. 

The part that you said you don't know all about how electrical things work makes me take your argument with a grain of salt, so all this speculation on a lie is just that- speculation.  You have no proof beyond what you think you know, to which even you admit isn't enough to come to a conclusion.   You guys are getting in a fuss about speculation with no solid proof.  This notion should be dead in the water.  

And again, even if the park miffed this up- who does it affect that this would hurt the park.  Only enthusiasts are watching the cams and keeping up with this stuff to even have a single iota of what is going on.  

You guys are just stirring up a drama pot at this point.

That explains why the GP is commenting about the camera's being down... :rolleyes:

Not trying to add fuel to the fire, but there was a time where you would just go to the park to see the progress from day-to-day (or in this case week-to-week). I know for the most part everyone is excited for Orion and want to see it topped off on the cams, but I guarantee that you’ll live if you don’t.

In the words of Aaron Rodgers: R-E-L-A-X. Relax
