I'm sure the restraints on the cookies were painful.

I know how to ride a stand up, so my noodle and cookies are A-OK.

I think we might see a change in this park! I've been waiting so long for the park to actually get a new ride.

As mentioned earlier I attended Apocalypse Media Day for TPR this morning. Unfortunately, I could not obtain any photos from restricted areas so the pictures may be repetitive of ones that other posted last week.

There was a brief press conference to introduce the new ride. But the park representative was interrupted and overrun by zombies. In order to escape from the zombie apocalypse we were instructed to board the escape vehicles. The park also put out a good spread of food for the media.

As for the ride, if you rode Iron Wolf at SFGAm you know what you are getting. It's a short B&M stand-up, and is fairly smooth compared to the larger stand-ups which have more elements transitions. Every person at the park that I spoke to (General Public) viewed the coaster as new. They all just appeared grateful for a new coaster.

Here's the front seat POV:

Great report, Larry! They certainly did a great job with the theming.

I originally thought that the Iron Wolf trains would look bad on Apocalypse; but the rugged, military-style look really fits the theme.
