I have a couple of questions about the new Intamin flumes. Does anyone know if the car is attached to the track or does it just run on top of the those poles? and what does the thing in the middle of the drop do? Is that what hooks it on?

I think I'm just as excited to ride this as I am to go to CP for the first time this year.

with those camera shots, you'd think that Cedar Point just LETS guests onto the construction site.

The thing in the middle of the drop, if I'm not mistaken, keeps the boat straight (I would have said keeps the boat from falling off, but I remembered the old Arrow log flumes...), so the boat doesnt decide to turn a little and crash at the bottom.

The boat isn't attached to any track except for the lift hills. Its guided by the walls and pushed along by the water.

Thanks. I was confused because looking at Pilgrim's Plunge photos it was hard to see if it was resting on anything besides the shallow trough, which I thought would be to flimsy to support the weight of the boat or keep the boat on track.
