Shock Wave R.I.P. 1988-2002
i kind of thought that was what they were up too.
Thats so annoing I wanted to go on American Eagle really bad yesterday. But the line was really long compared to the regular season. There proably just fixing the ride or something. About the wood I didnt see any. But like I said their proabaly just reparing it it is like 20 years old.

From what I remember, the Eagle has been re-tracked on both sides withing the last few years. That lumber I am sure is just to replace rotting wood. Common thing that I am sure they do in sections every year.
Now, as far as a complete paint job, I dont think they have done that in quite awhile (and it needs it badly).
2 superheroes in Gurnee next season? Oh the humanity. :)
Wow! I think I'm more excited about this than our new Beemer. I am astonished by the effort a *gasp* Six Flags park is doing to repair and preserve a classic wood coaster. Take that Cedar Fair. Seriously though, that helix did need a retrack, while I liked it, it's bad when my brother won't take a re-ride with me because the helix gave him a headache.
Anyway, enough about a good decision, does anybody know if a new paint job could accompany a retracking job?
