Boulder Dash to get old Wildcat Trains

Im not sure if this was mentioned in the Wildcat thread. But when I was searching through rcdb I saw the little side note about it.

They started using them at the end of last year. This is old news.
Old news is old and boring. :)

Very old news
Well I didn't know. Thanks for posting.

A bit odd to replace such new PTCs?

You can see pics of the trains and a POV of BD on opening weekend.

Hmmm...

1) If those are indeed the Hershey Wildcat trains, then they have been rebuilt...the Wildcat had headrests, constructed as high seat backs.

2) Looks like Ghost Hunt has cars that match the ones on Ghostwood Estate (Kennywood).

I didn't know either, so the haters can stick it unless they have something meaningful to contribute.

Haters?

They had a train damaged last summer, Purchased the wildcats old PTC trains and mentioned cycling the four every two years.

How's mentioning that as old news, Hating? The only hate I see is the stuff you generate.

I have a confession to make. My name's Mike and I'm . . . a hater. I've hated for years. Sometimes I'll hate four, five times just in one day. I know it's a problem and I want to change. In fact, it's gotten so bad I actually hate hating. If my life keeps going like it is, someday I'll even hate hating hating.

But at least I'm among friends. And I hate you too.

After an incident on the ride last year, the park started using one of the old Wildcat trains. The Hershey trains were supposedly rebuilt in the off-season so they are exactly like the original Boulder Dash trains, meaning no headrests. Chuck is right, they four trains are supposedly going to be rotated every year.

They'll get rotated until LC builds their second mega-terrain-woodie by Gravity Group in 2010.

Now how long before that ends up in SS or Toilet Paper Rollers...

They are running the Wildcat trains this year, which have been repainted to green and blue (I believe) and next year the original yellow and red BD trains will be used.

Hmm, I didn't know this either, thanks for sharing!

What was the "incident" on BD?

Someone might know but I don't. I do know that they removed the final drop in lew of a longer brake run.

Sad too as it was the best air on the return run when I visited. Wait, Best air on the ride cept the latteral lift jump.

^^ I didn't hear anything about the last hill having been removed. That's a shame.
