This year, they added some nifty red decals to the outside-facing side of each ride vehicle, not seen in this photo, depicting some kind of bird.

Billy tried to snap his "boat", but could not, he said because of the speed. I tried not to snap mine, because these are terrifying to me, and accidentally snapped it.

So the secret to snapping on this ride, perhaps, is not to try?

There may be some truth to that. I tried not to snap the Knoebels flyers and had the opposite result.

Why would you try to NOT snap em? I don't get it :(

I find flyers to be pretty much the scariest rides out there. There is nothing to keep the ride in control. It's just a big tub swinging around on a couple of wires, and can go practically anywhere. Something inside of me (falsely) tells me that I am in danger when I ride these kinds of rides, even though I know that I am perfectly safe.

This is why I didn't snap them.

Edit: *try to* snap them, I mean.

I don't recall seeing a sign at Camden Park discouraging snapping, Vater. That thread is about Knoebels flyers.

The Flyers at Camden Park are pretty difficult to snap, anyways, because they go really fast, and are much larger than the classic variety of the ride. Standing near the ride while it is operating, one gets a thrilling view of the tubs flying literally over one's head.

I know that thread was about Knoebels. Read my first post...then Billy's question immediately following.

DOH! I normally don't reread the entire thread, and things get out of context.
