Article in local newspaper about PKI

Sunday, March 24, 2002 4:27 AM

This morning in my local newspaper, The Middletown Journal, there were two articles about PKI. I have a web link to one of them but the other one wasn't put on their site.

http://www.middletown.com/auto/feed/news/2002/03/24/1016953698.05426.8554.1308.html

The other article was about PKI's history and what they hoped to become in the future, very interesting.

Make sure you read the last 3 or 4 paragraphs in the article. I'm pretty excited about what new we might see at the park this year.

LOL! Anyone else read this sentence:


When asked where Miss Piggy was, Horton replied: "Miss Piggy is hideous. She's got this jacket that makes her look like a hooker, so we decided not to use her."

LOL!!

I talked with my friend whos an employee at the park this morning. They recently tested the auio for TRTR and he said that somethin was 16 degrees off and messing up with the animation. ***Cough cough ANIMATION ***. I don't know what the 16 degree stuff is about but there's gonna be animations. Also if anyone on here recieves the Middletwon Journal, look at the TRTR picture in the LifeStyle section of the paper. You can see a new building being built in the backround. I guess they really ARE doing an overhaul to Rivertown. I never expected it to be this big!

The animations could be referring to the sliding walls and stuf like that in the que area.

If something is off by 16 degrees and interfering with an animation, I think it's safe to say the animation in question refers to theatrical robotics, where space can be critical...

At least it isn't as bad as the lap bars on The Beast and Racer, which were off by about 40 degrees from spec the last time I rode...

The article stated:

"To that end, a group of new buildings, including restaurants, shops and the like, is being built near the ride, giving the Rivertown area around The Beast its first major overhaul since Whitewater Canyon opened in 1985, Siebert said."

Is this the new building that you guys are talking about behind tomb raider?
