  1. Are they different or is there a slope across the site making the others more exposed?
  2. Ours definitely has had a few changes from the default. We already know the loop supports are different, as are the additional intermediate columns on some track pieces. Here you can see the 2nd column on the corkscrew exit is sloped not vertical. But...IDK it's like the pedestal height was set to be above head height when it probably could have been a little lower.
  3. Yeah its the 11km from Kiama to Jamberoo thats the problem. **** I'm surprised they are using temp crowd barricades, normally you'd have stanchions you can drop into holes in the ground for temporary overflow.
  4. Yeah, will do a quick little weekend trip down for sure. Depending on the cost of car rentals I'll probably do Jamberoo as well if Velocity Falls is ready.
  5. Sadly not, but I'm looking forward to seeing plenty of great photos throughout the day!
  6. Plus if it were Superman wouldn't it be blue and red?
  7. It'll be Flash or Wonderwoman Surely? 'Super' just means Superhero related IMO.
  8. Yeah, this is one of the few coasters in aus that i feel like i cant draw the layout from memory.
  9. Unfortunately your loading is only as fast as your slowest guest.
  10. A good grossing factor for parking is 30sqm per bay, but parking is less efficient in grass because people dont park neatly. Basically a parking spot is 2.6*6. The aisle is 6m wide, so each bay needs half an aisle, so it becomes 2.6*9=23.4sqm per bay. But then you have to add in landscaping, walkways, other circulation roads and it roughly works out that you can achieve 1 bay per 30sqm land you own.
  11. By the way B&M filed a patent with a seat that can actually move a bit during the ride cycle to make it less likely to get wedged. Hope to see this appear.
  12. No what @gauge means is that when setting the height you bend your knees slightly, let it lock and then stand up normally and the bike seat is now a bit lower.
  13. Yeah, Buzzsaw had a cool queue, but they mucked up by only making the walkways 900 wide, so it felt very cramped.
  14. I thought it was WWF 💁‍♂️ In terms of theming mob vs urban design mob, I guess the themed stuff might be more literal and less geometric, perhaps more use of rockwork etc, maybe more rustic, like the stuff seen in the preview POV back in 2019.
  15. Well yeah, its kind of like if you want the thrill of a stand up coaster you have to take a bit more responsibility than just sitting down and closing a bar. It's an inherent part of the experience, just the same as if you do a ropes course and wear the harness uncomfortably.
  16. I guess I'm just a little bit sad that the queue is literally right at the level of the launch start but we don't get to watch it due to the solid wall. Would be funny watching everyone's expressions change in a split second as it powers up. It does look like a very comfortable queue line for a hot summers day though.
  17. The backrest is spring loaded and naturally tries to rise to the highest position (like pulling a lever to lift an office chair) so if you just let it rise it will lock in the highest position and give you a wedgie. I think people who let that happen are the ones who dislike stand ups. But if you hold it at a comfortable level until it locks, its fine. I think they are great to be honest.
  18. With Facebook, the reason I mentioned is that typically Facebook pages are flooded with somewhat unfiltered feedback after big events 🤭 Will wait and see....
  19. When I went past around 7 p.m. there were cars parked out on the service road.
  20. @Jobe what are the bridges you keep mentioning?
  21. I would say yes because if you are on the exit platform then you cannot expect people to jump the tracks to the other side of the station to evacuate.
  22. The only reason I can think of is if it were a required exit that needed to be 60 min fire rated. Even so they could have done nicer stuff than chainlink fencing and galvanised stairs. Looks a bit like it belongs at the department of corrections.
  23. Even if t's not a wooden bridge, I would have thought red and yellow steelwork to match the ride would look a bit nicer than galvanised. I was thinking too the big dipper station would have minarets on it and a bit of colour.
  24. Universal, nah I've never had a problem. SFMM I've never used one either, but you can always buy one on the day if it starts getting bad. CP Definitely. How many days do you have for the NYC to Cedar Point leg?
  25. So are they going to offer pass extensions? I bought a VRTP last year because they said Leviathan would be opening late this year, but now it means my pass will expire without having ridden it.
