No, but if 'it' lasts longer than four hours, he should probably respond to the emergency room.

Or, just a thought here, but you might want just go on a weekend instead of skipping school to go ride a roller coaster. I mean... #EducationMatters

Or, just a thought here, they could be a great student who can prepare for a day or two off in advance and not miss anything of major note?

Sometimes, life is worth living in the moment, and only needs a moment of prep to be perfectly fine. :)

Also, I'm stoked to try this ride eventually but god does my stomach fear it.
Ignore the screaming in the woods...

Everything is fine.

That's true. I didn't think of it like that. I was a great student, but lord, if I ever took time off I'd be the end of the world. :lol: my mom would have killed me!!

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Why is it such a sin to be excited for Time Traveler? It's right up my alley. I was just expressing my thoughts on the ride. I think it will be a good ride for the park.

Yes I plan ahead for these kind of things. I hope to have a future in the amusement industry, and taking part in things that relate to my interest does me more good than doing differential equations and staring at a history book for an hour. :lmao:

On another, different note, I had a friend who went to the park recently and said that Flooded mine has appeared to have some decent work done to it lately. He said it was in the best condition he's seen it in a very long time. Has anyone noticed anything?

There are a few very dedicated individuals that have been trying their hardest to keep the ride looking as nice as possible for it's 50th season. It's extremely hard to keep it going these days since what it really needs is an entirely new gun system, but the park doesn't seem to think the expense will pay off. Not sure what is going to happen in the next few years, but the ride does have a cult following.

Had a great day at SDC. Very minimal attendance today, everything's a walk-on except Powder Keg, which had a whopping wait of 3 cycles. Flooded Mine was looking and running great!

The top hat. Now that it's fall, you can see it a bit more clearly through the trees.

Some catwalk is up on the brake run, but there's still more to go.

:lover: Damn I love those new coaster station shots! With the actual endpoint of the track curling around,
back into the station. The views of those on it coming back, is going to be awesome, I bet! :wink:

Thanks for the new photos, Andrew! :airtime:

I'll give him that. I had skipped a few math classes of my own choosing, because I was excellent at math, and could easily skip a few classes,
then catch up in one hour. Or less. It's true! But I ONLY skipped a few times in the whole semester. Not that often, really.

That said, I wish I had a coaster opening to go to, instead of skipping a class (back then) to just enjoy the day, that day. ;)

Went to the park over the weekend, without being redundant since everyone has pretty much covered the station area and entrance work, I went ahead and got more photos of the layout as seen from the Culinary School. You can see the overbanked turns, inversions, and the launches thru the trees.
