Beast extended downtime


Recommended Posts

I rode The Beast earlier today. Once in row 2 and then 17. The ride is riding like it always has to me.

I remember riding it a few times at Coasterstock, one time with @DonHelbigand we both discussed it running really well.

The only spot I would like to see looked at is the track going into the second tunnel. It is a little rough right there. Otherwise, to me it is running as it always has. 

I think the impression that it is rougher comes from the fact it was shut down to get a spot fixed, and now that Racer has been majorly retracked makes The Beast feel rougher than normal.

I am not saying some track work would help some areas, just that it is back to its normal ride experience.That is my two cents on the subject.

I rode Beast a few times after 7PM on Tuesday 8/10/21.  For a while, there's a maintenance dude at the valley after the first left turn. The place with the new lumber. He's looking at the trains go by at a place 20 feet further down from the repair.  Hmmm.  HMMMMMMM.

Off topic, but if you want to see a track bend, watch it when a train descends the first hill on Diamondback.  Quite a surprising flex.  Yes yes yes metal bends and flexes.  But still...

It could definitely use additional track work in spots, imo. Probably good that someone's keeping an eye on it in addition to the daily inspections.

Would be nice to see a breakthrough in actual wood track that could make it more durable rather than having to re-track so regularly.
