  1. The parabolic negative airtime hills would not be recreated in the USA in today's climate.

    A rebuilt Big Dipper would resemble the original as much as Kings Dominion's Grizzly does Coney Island of Ohio's Wildcat or Canada's Wonderland's Mighty Canadian Minebuster does Coney Island of Ohio's Shooting Star--which is to say almost not at all.

    Geauga Lake itself had the prime exemplar. The Raging Wolf Bobs was made of wood and had coaster trains that ran on steel wheels on wood track. Otherwise....the Riverview Bobs recreated? No. Just no.

  2. The National Park Service has announced that the Washington Monument will not in fact reopen during September but rather will remain closed indefinitely. They have not identified what specifically is causing the elevator problems. It has been closed since August 17.

    They hope to have more information in the next couple of weeks. The Monument is unlikely to reopen until the elevator has been "modernized."
