These are two of my favorite shots of Griffon that I have taken. They are on my deviantart account.

Down the first drop, taken with my old 6.2MB Kodak camera.

Rooster Tail - I think this is car #2, which has the biggest water splash.

I hate the coaster, but I still have pictures. I didn't take these.

If I may ask, what do you not like about Griffon?

They ripped out a classic to put it in, it is too short, and it is repetitive (Up -> Down -> Inversion x2). The part they have is fun... I guess, but it just doesn't feel finished. Also, the second loop destroyed the secluded feeling on Nessy (there is a huge blue track right outside of the station, while it used to be surrounded by trees). Also, they ripped out all of the trees that used to be there. IMO, they made that part of the park very ugly when they added Griffon.

I agree..cutting down trees and removing yet another "family" ride with the Le Mans Cars. I've got one really cool shot however. Thanks to my wonderfully useless art degree, I can sometimes make a photo have some decent composition. Sometimes... photography was never my forte'. Animation...well, that is a different story altogether. :-/

Swiftman - I do understand. You are right, it has taken a little away, but it's also added. Hopefully they will design the new coaster around the trees over there, too, instead of tearing down so much. I can't recall on the tour if they've planted more trees down there.

Nora - Thanks! And I do love your shots!


Now here are a few more that were taken on that same trip, but by my husband.

I guess I'm going to go ahead and add a few from my collection of Griffon photos I took this year.

If anyone is interested here is a POV just so you can watch while the park is closed:

These aren't too bad, considering they were taken with my iPhone. The one with the train is my iPhone background.
