It would seem to block the view of the station window, from which traditionally a ride-op waves to departing passengers. Is there still room for the wave, or are they going to stop doing it? I always thought it was neat.

yes, the wave from the station will continue. Gosh, we didn't know you cared...
It depends on how far back the transfer shed stretches, which you can't tell from the webcam. The window the operator waves from is at the far back corner of the station, which is also not visible from the webscam. I bet riders will still be able to see the window as you exit the shed and make the turn/drop to the lift.
Time for Paula to chime in ;)
edit - d'oh...she already did in another thread!

The wave will be briefer...but just as sincere and heartfelt.
(Oh, good grief! I'm making myself sick!)
Paula (P.S. Can you change the name of this thread? It's rather startling.)
You never seem to miss answering any park related question, in fact you're usually one of the first repliers.
Now was that nice?
...our webcam has been on the fritz for several weeks and I'd added a "sorry, but our webcam is out of service" statement in bold to the page, in the hopes I wouldn't receive a zillion emails asking me what that white blob was.
I didn't realize the webcam had come back to life.
P.S. - I just wanted to let you know Paula that I am SO loving my Holiday World checks! When can we expect another series? j/k, hehe....

There is a second window around the corner that faces the lift hill, so a friendly wave can come from there as well. Although it is worth noting that as the train ascends the lift, the other train should be returning to the station, so the operator at the console may have her hands full bringing in the other train...!
Of course, it is the Legend where riders going up the lift are greeted with a GIGANTIC sign off to the right that says, "Wave"...

I figured the white blob was Drabek taking more photos
BTW, Paula, the cam is dead again. *** Edited 2/24/2005 8:50:19 PM UTC by redman822***
Paul *never* wears white between Labor Day and Easter!
You're right. I wouldn't be caught dead in white this time of the year. To clarify my wardrobe choices for today for Sam my work attire consisted of tan dockers and a light green polo while my evening wear consists of a light blue Lake Winnie Cannonball shirt with shorts.
