Re: Spinnaker and Air Racer Vid

Good stuff. I recognized a Chaps employee and the employee at Spinnaker. I was hoping there would be more focus on Conquistador. I was a foreman there at that time.

Re: Shanghai Disneyland Details Revealed (TRON!!)

Most operators are providing on-ride videos as part of the video packages they release to the media prior to opening new rides. I've also seen a number of videos recently shot on Go Pros using chest...

Re: Speelunker pictures in Yosemite Sam

I know they were there last year and maybe even before that. There's so many of them throughout the ride that it looks a little silly. It doesn't help that they look cheaply homemade.

Re: SFOT 55 Years - What do you still have

I have a few nametags, a training badge, one photo of me in a supervisor uniform, and a small brass tag from proximity switch 66 on Bobsled. I've had that on my keyring for 23 years.

Re: Astroworld: 10 years later

The park already had a scrambler in storage, right? The one that ran on the old Air Racer site for a year or two?

And which ride from AW was so severely damaged in transport after leaving AW (or...

Re: Astroworld: 10 years later

The 10 new rides didn't come from Astroworld. Maybe Crazy Legs, and I'm not certain about that.

Re: This Day in History

I had no idea that Six Flags and MTV got their start on the same day. Ten years after MTV went on the air, one its creators, Bob Pittman, became the CEO of Six Flags Theme Parks.

Re: Music Mill Concerts

I would say one of the biggest issues is that it's an outdated, awful venue for a concert. Hot, little shade, all concrete, aluminum benches, no amenities, lots of background noise, poor acoustics....

Re: Park announces late May opening for JL ride

Most parks provide the media with POV and b-roll footage for their media events.

Re: Confused

Re: Proposal to privatize Fair Park operations

It's probably worth clarifying that the city is not directly trying to push the fair out, but the new proposal would limit the available space available to the fair to 1/3 of what they currently use....

I've got a great memento from him in my office. I'll try to post a pic of it tomorrow.

Playoff predictions with 3 weeks left in the season? Now that's working without a net.

Re: Orion Rocket Launch...

I'm well aware that Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions were covered by the networks. My question was whether or not unmanned tests were carried live back then.

And they have a successful...

Re: Orion Rocket Launch...

I'm a little younger than you, so I really don't know the answer to this: unmanned test launches got stop down coverage from the networks?

Other than that, I'm right there with you. I get why the...

Re: Deceiving Rides

I had a similar experience on Looping Starship when I first rode it at AW in the mid-90s. A lot more terrifying on claustrophobic than I expected. I ended up loving SFOT's version when I rode it...

Re: Mini Series

I vividly remember North and South, War and Remembrance, V, and, of course, Lonesome Dove. Lonesome Dove would probably be considered the last of the great, network mini series. I also remember the...

I went to a private party at MK last night for the IAAPA conference and the new ride is great - maybe one of my favorite at Disney.

Anyone know what the construction between the end of Main St....
