Looking forward to Larrygator's report... ApocaCookies! > LOL
Leviathan - "I am a B&M, I am clearly not the father. I305 is not my child." Millennium Force - "Yes he is Maury... I am 100% sure" Maury - "Leviathan ..... in the case of possessed juvenile I305 .... you are not the father! Maverick - (giggles with guilty grin)"
As mentioned earlier I attended Apocalypse Media Day for TPR this morning. Unfortunately, I could not obtain any photos from restricted areas so the pictures may be repetitive of ones that other posted last week.
There was a brief press conference to introduce the new ride. But the park representative was interrupted and overrun by zombies. In order to escape from the zombie apocalypse we were instructed to board the escape vehicles. The park also put out a good spread of food for the media.
As for the ride, if you rode Iron Wolf at SFGAm you know what you are getting. It's a short B&M stand-up, and is fairly smooth compared to the larger stand-ups which have more elements transitions. Every person at the park that I spoke to (General Public) viewed the coaster as new. They all just appeared grateful for a new coaster.
Here's the front seat POV:
Obligatory shot to show that I'm in the right place.
And the coaster entrance
The site of today's Press Conference.
Oh the humanity!!!!! Zombies break through the signage to converge on the presenter who is chased away.
But a hero emerges to lead us past the carnage and zombies to the escape vehicles.
It turns into complete madness with the zombies scattering throughout the queue, I mean our path to the escape vehicles.
Hey! Hey! Hey! What's in Your Head?
Lot's of destruction to look at as you walk through the queue.
We got to get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do.
I've reached the escape vehicle.
But it leaves without me, luckily another one arrives before the zombies re-emerge.
Somewhere back there is the fire effect, it is easiest to see from the left side of the train.
The train heads straight at the old water coaster mountain before hitting the lift hill.
On to the food - Breakfast burritos for the early risers
Plenty of sandwiches
Specialty Apocalypse cookies
and an obscene amount of dessert. The chocolate cookies were awesome.
Sparse Apocalyptic landscaping or just incomplete? You decide.
FYI - here's the old Two-Face station. I'm still amazed they haven't fully cleaned up this area. Certain parts of the park looked great, but this leaves a bad impression.
and a huge thanks to Dave Thomas and Derek Ruth who suggest that I stop at Alewife in Baltimore on the way home for their incredible Smoky Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese. I felt like throwing up after I ate it, just so I could taste it again. It was that good!
