This is the only reaction I can make for this:



They are obviously making a knee jerk reaction to avoid any controversy due to the current political climate. But unfortunately it is probably a good idea on their part to be proactive.

If anybody is looking for a job with mechanical/electrical experience, SDC is looking to hire people for Time Traveler. https://hfecorp-openhire.silkroad.com/epostings/index.cfm?fuseaction=app.jobinfo&jobid=8878&company_id=16687&version=6&source=ONLINE&jobOwner=992276&aid=1

Wow! They actually went through with Demo-ing it! R.I.P. Poke Salad Mary's. Another classic SDC structure bites the dust. They were actually open the last time I was up there and one of the employees said that the pathways were originally gonna pass thru there but they decided to keep and re-purpose the building and thus placed the pathway behind it instead.

But apparently not. Maybe they found it was structurally unsound?

Shot this around August.

I really was considering it as it would be a first for me but those temps got a big fat no from me, unfortunately.

Probably due to it being post Christmas and the fact non of the rides are operational at these temps.

They got snow on the ground at SDC? That has always been a bucket list thing for me to get photos with snow on the ground there with their Christmas decor.

Some were toying with the idea that this area is gonna be part of a new themed area and for a future Mack coaster that will tie into it sometime in 2020. I am skeptical though even though HFEC has always done a two park deal with attractions in the past.

^I was kinda concerned about that. I remember seeing that in the simulation about the train stopping before the launch. If they are not gonna bother with constructing a show segment around that section hopefully they will eliminate it as I fear that would kill the pacing of the ride. While I'm excited for TT I saw somewhere on another forum someone was making the speculation that its the world's most expensive family coaster. Kinda makes me wonder.

From what I saw and understood it will work in almost the same way as disc brakes do on a car. But instead of metallic/ceramic pads coming in contact with a metal disk rotor there will be magnetic blocks positioned on either side of a metal ring at the base of the carriage that will be activated to control the system via a speed sensor if it starts to reach a certain rotational speed.

Other Parks / Re: Dogpatch Update 12/17

Sad, without running the risk of getting all political in this thread (I am a moderate FWIW) I went to the FB page and discovered lots of political alt-right propaganda posted in their feed instead of info about the park so it looks like I wont be spending my money there. Sounds like an agenda pushing/money milking scheme. I'll stick to SDC.
