^ On IRaT the magnetic, non-block brake is at a steep angle like that, so I would assume a steep brake run on another RMC would act similarly, and not be a block. But then at the same time TC's steep brake run looks to go right into the station from the angle the picture was taken from. So either stacked trains will wait awkwardly at an angle if that is a block, or this is gonna have a really screwy block system... Or the angle of photography could just be screwing with me.

Actually, it's in a parking lot SURROUNDED by a field of grass ;)

Really though, they should take the opportunity to do something with Scream. Am I wrong to assume that they'll close off the entire "Back Alley" area after Frightfest to begin work on the new themed area? May as well at least give it a paint job.

I've gone pantless!

I agree. Those parking space lines are starting to get pretty faded! :lmao:

Hi...as I have mentioned in a couple of other threads we are planning a family holiday to the USA around February/March next year. SFMM is on the cards to visit and it appears likely to be Saturday Feb 28th will be the day for SFMM. In another thread it was recommended we get a gold Flash Pass each. Given that it is effectively going to double our admission cost do you think it is worth the extra money around that time of year?

Thanks,
Corey

It 100% has to be a block brake in order to run 3 trains.

Speaking of block brakes, I was thinking about it, and I came up with this.

Since there is no block brake on the blue track (between the blue and green lift hill), doesn't the green lift hill train have to release first, that way in case there is an E-stop, two trains won't occupy the green lift? Sorry if this is confusing, but hopefully someone sees what I'm going at.

Though Saturdays are usually the busiest day of the week, February is not an especially busy time of year (most parks arent even open) so you may not need it. Don't buy your Flash Passes ahead of time, just be prepared to buy one at the park if it turns out to be especially busy.
