    Project 2021: Pantheon

    Well if Festa is supposed to be a Fair theme, then they really nailed the put-up-in-the-field look...

    Project 2022/2023 (?): Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    True, but that time would be worked into the quote given at bid time. A rival manufacturer who may have bid on the job originally (assuming there were multiple bidders for the FHP ride) would still have the site info for the lot. That said, if this went down the way we think, Intamin offered...

    Defunct Roller Coaster Hyper Sonic XLC

    They scrapped Hypersonic right as I started to brave up to the larger rides. The biggest gripe I had was how short of a ride it was with a very long wait. I remember the ride easily having 1-2 hour waits on some days, even at the end of its life. I do wish I had tried it, but from what my dad...

    Project 2022 (?!): Rampage Replacement

    They already have the record for best place to smash a finger and/or toe... I actually lost a toenail when I was 13 after dropping the sled directly on my right big toe...

    Pointless Discussions

    I felt it was over-hyped. Wasn't particularly interested in anything on the menu (and I'm not a picky eater).

    Project 2022/2023 (?): Festhaus Park Giga Coaster

    I dont think they would go for prefab wooden coaster. Watch ElToroRyan's video on the problems with prefabs and you can see why there aren't that many of them. If Busch wants another non-gci woodie, they would probably go RMC.

    Parks & Rec, The Office, Chuck, Scrubs, Community, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Good Place, and Psych, but I've heard it both ways... the right way and then yours!

    Ride Control Panels

    Yep! My only criticism is they didn't use a PV5500, but to each their own. PV+7 is still a good HMI. I use both and much prefer the graphics of the 5500. They play really nice with the latest Rockwell firmware for PLC's too.

    Project 2021: Pantheon

    Usually when we power stuff up, we test everything... and I mean everything before we try to start the machine. Even before power up we use a multimeter to check that every wire goes where it supposed to and nothing is shorted. On the systems I do, this takes a matter of hours to a day. I...
