Nice Photo TR! You got some nice shots of Griffon

BTW, I see a killer head-chopper going under that bridge after the drop :b

Griffon looks amazing. I wish BGE was closer (I live in Southern California). The only thing I dont like about that ride is the wierd colors of the trains. Their ok but kinda strange.

^ I noticed that too. The trains are the only things that don't seem to match. They do happen to match Sheikra, though. ;)

I like to ride Shakira...oh, and SheiKra Too!

Awesome pictures! I cannot believe how Griffon really dwarfs everything else in the park. I remember looking down on Loch Ness from the Sky Ride, but not it seems you have to look UP at Griffon!

Maybe they should replace the roofs on the sky ride cars with glass! :P

I've gone pantless!

Excellent pictures, Jeff! Good to see the sky ride is up and running again, too. (I'll be checking it out on Friday.) I love how it just cruises right through the center of Griffon.

Funny thing is that still nobody rides that leg of the sky ride. The other 2 sides had at least a 30 min wait all day while the "Griffon side" was still about a 1 minute wait. Maybe that will change after Griffon opens.

Awesome awesome pictures!!! I cant wait till i can get back over there!!! Griffon is looking like it will be high up there on my Top list!!

One question i have is has anyone seen how the floor in the station moves? Is there any video's of it?

I mean i know how a floorless floor(haha) basically works, but thats with a 4 across train!

I wrote the book about donkeys!

You'd think that they would want to put a protective shield on the track above the splash! I wouldn't want to be on a train going by as another one goes into the splashdown. :lolr:

What's with the donkeys anyway?

Well... I think the shield is only for the Sky Ride. You wouldn't want to be riding if someone dropped an ice cream cone right on your head...

Anyways, Griffon looks really cool. I think the trains kind of look out of place, but oh well. Also the color of the splash pool kind of looks cheesy now, but oh well.

Great TR, I hope to see more soon!
