It's a staging/storage area that doesn't wholistically affect the atmosphere of the ride at all.

Anyone going to be at the park on Tuesday? Send me a message if you are and would like to get in some Fury rides with me!

If I ever bumped into a bumper car and it burst into flames I would brag about that until the end of time.

^ I always said movies were inaccurate when cars would burst into flames. I stand corrected. :lol:

All kidding aside, I'm glad no one got hurt. It'll be interesting to see exactly how this occurred.

As would I, It would be one of the biggest bragging rights of all time.

Looks like everyone was clear and there was no one who got injured so that is very good news

Am I missing something or are the flyers gone gone? If so this is probably super old news (hey, I don’t check every thread on here that often), but I thought they had mentioned moving it when they talked about their plans for Camp Snoopy. What happened to it?

An update on the project alpha site. Drill on site. Looks like they maybe getting ready to work on the top hat footings as they may be the deepest and carrying the most brut.
