^ Hand crank!

I'm sure they have something. Hell Tatsu even has a back-up diesel engine if the power goes that will send the train over the lift if needed.

I just assumed Premier approached them with a cool idea, and they made the theme around it. Maximum RPM. Get it. It's a tape reel.

I love donkeys more than me.

One question comes to mind when I see the ferris wheel lift. Why?

Could it be for the same reason that Mack has build rides with the elevator lift system? To help conserve space in parks that might not have it?

Maximum RPM seems to be a very compact ride. Perhaps this was just Premiere's answer to an elevator lift where the current Mack version can only have 2 ride vehicles on it at one time and this iteration can house 4.

How's that for a fairly logical explanation? ;)

Well actually, it's more like 3. One would be empty because the train would have been released while it was at the peak. But still... it's a whole nother train which still picks up capacity.

Midnight Rider is testing (as you can see). So, is there any word on theming? I mean, a mine train isn't a mine train without theming...

Cool!! Everything is coming along nicely!

Hope they add some trees in the next weeks for a "happier", bit more green views and not just concrete. Also I think there are some very colorful zones on the park, but LZ:TR looks kinda monotonous to me (the track, the cars...)

Or maybe it's just me
:roll:

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.
