I’d say it’s not really the same as BGWFans since BGWFans provides either leaked info or critiques of the park to a large audience, whereas this is just a few misinformed people on Facebook commenting on an easily-debunked problem.
I don’t think they “need” to do anything in this case. It’s some random post in a private group where a few people are confused. Those people will figure it out when they visit BGW and Wirbelwind is still there.
Of course, a post explaining the maintenance that goes into Der Wirbelwind would be...
I think they’re different. For example, I’d argue coasters like Avalanche don’t have any drops, despite having a constant decline. Another example: the switchback portion of most Wild Mice(???) declines slightly, but I wouldn’t call that a drop.
That was my initial thought too, but would a .1 degree decline really be considered a drop? Break runs probably have an even steeper grade.
The answer to this question is probably just 180 minus the minimum angle that one would consider to be a normal drop. So if we say the minimum angle of a...
Are you talking about the radio broadcast sort of thing that played from the radio tower outside the entrance? I swear I haven’t heard that in years, but maybe I’ve just gone on bad days. Have you heard it recently?
So I didn't have as many of the 2017-era International Street songs written down as I thought, but here are some of the songs I remember. These played from early 2017 through July 2019 before being replaced with the current "international" soundtrack.
He's a Pirate - Hans Zimmer
The Planet Snoopy soundtrack is different from some of the other park areas because there are literally several thousand songs on the playlist, so I don’t have any from that area unfortunately.
I actually do have some of the current Safari Village and early-2019 International Street songs...
To be fair, talks of removing Crypt have been around for years. I remember Gary Chadwick implying its imminent removal back when he was GM. If it weren’t for Volcano being removed just across the path, this probably wouldn’t have been as tough of a blow.
This is a little exaggerated IMO. There’s no reason to believe Volcano and Crypt won’t be replaced, and supposedly Anaconda and Avalanche both have steady ridership numbers. Plus, Tony Johnson said at the ACE Q&A this fall that there are no plans to remove Anaconda.
