Yet, hat filled trains were dispatching from Fury on my last visit.

Huh. We've got it lucky, I guess. Most every time I'm on Coaster at Playland, and somebody's got a cap on, the ride op
just advises the rider to take their cap off, as "they might lose it." And that's it. The rider usually stuffs the cap in a back
pocket or in the jacket, etc. like Chuck would have done.

And there are caps at the bottom, inside the open areas of Coaster, lol. ;) But it's not started a No-Caps-Period policy.

And to add, I think I would rather be 'hit' by a soft cloth cap, than a cell phone, mid-ride.

In addition to hitting the last night of Howl-o-Scream, I took some photos for another InvadR update. This might be the last one of the year, unless I can squeeze in another when the park reopens for Christmas Town.

They've made quite a bit of progress since the last update.

Now that InvadR has gone vertical, I'm genuinely excited.

I'm already considering making the trip down next May. I might take a week off and hit both Kings Island and BGW.

Seeing Invadr going vertical is getting me excited for this as well. I considered going to BGW this year but hearing the announcement as early as they made it made me wait until next year. I haven't been there in like 3 years and that's too long between visits since I live 4 hours away. It seems like they've made a lot of minor improvements over the past few seasons as well.

Bottom line is I'm more excited for a small GCI than I should be because it gives me another reason to get to a fantastic park (possibly my favorite) next year.

I guess I wasn't aware that InvadR would be prtially steel-supported. Interesting. I think this is the perfect addition for a nearly perfect park.

I think InvadR is going to be one of the underdogs this year that makes a big impact. The theming is going to be incredible and should provide a nice ride with the tunnels and ride interaction
