I have been on a few winter tours of the park. and they have always been on the ground. I think they will remove them once they begin there season rehab.

Recently I posted a Winter Photo Update of Waldameer, but the Ravine Flyer II pictures were during a thaw. Well since I was feeling in need of some exercise, I thought I would trudge through almost two feet deep snow in the midway, almost fall through the transfer track (snow hides some of the gaps), and make my way up for a real frozen and snowy lift walk.

After almost slipping through the transfer track section. I honestly had second thoughts.

The thermometer reads, 16 degrees, but Ravine Flyer II still reads, 90 DEGREEEES!

Doesn't appear so here, but I wasn't about to peer over much more as the steepness increases considerably with each step.

How about Busch Gardens Williamsburg? These were taken during an unusual April snowstorm the year that Griffin opened.

Some of those shots are stunning.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Yes, people were crazy enough to ride Le Scoot . . .


I have to admit, I wouldn't be able to help myself. I'd probably ride it too.
