I don't believe it had been completely attached yet.

drops

Postby lorddoonga » Mon Jul 30, 2007 8:00 am

Drops 1-3 look pretty decent in pictures. 2 probably is the one riders will suprised with most. 1 up close looks mild, but at a long distance it looks like a thriller. Monday started sunny with some clouds. Testing at end of the week??? alrighty then... BRING IT! shoot I volunteer to be a test jug.

I had sex with N-Tag before you did.

I'm assuming that the ride will open either this weekend or early next week, which is great because I have the O.K. to visit a week from this coming Sunday!

Thanks for another great update.

That first drop is just sick. I'm getting desperate to ride this ride. As crazy as it looks, I can see this becoming one of those rides that slowly gets neutered after about five or ten years. Can't wait for the reviews to come in though.

They are planning for around 100 hours of testing and the ride has to be inspected before they can start. I imagine it will be closer to 2 weeks before it opens. I'll run by after work and see if they've finished the track work and post an update.

1st drop

Hey coaster photoman:

Can you get us a good shot showing the angle of descent of the first drop? Like standing facing the side of it? Thanks

Nice to see the use of stamped and colored concrete for the midway. Perhaps something Knotts should take note of?

Hey Jason, any wearables in the Saltgrass souvenir shop yet? I've already shipped off a few trinkets to friends in faraway places. (cute keychains) When I asked the employee if there were any Boardwalk Bullet shirts, she asked "what's that"?... :roll:

I swear, I'll call in sick to work if I have any notice that this thing is opening soon. I work at a busy airport and have had it up to *HERE* with the heat, thunderstorms, delayed passengers... GG, take me away.............

Bless you Jason, for keeping the coaster-loving world informed.
