^They could have at least shown some new trackwork/trackbed, SOMETHING to make us think the ride itself will improve. As customers, the handrails don't really affect us at all.... ;)

Why do I have a hard time believing you really do hate to say that? ;)

Unless I'm mistaken, the second-to-last blog picture does include a small section of new track bed. So, ever so slightly more interesting than a new bathroom.

Oh well, maybe in 2010 we'll get the 500 foot inverted stand-up woodie soakin'-a-tor dark ride!

handrails... bah!

A better use for that wood would be to lay it all out underneath Mean Streak and use it for kindling to set the whole thing ablaze.


Certain victory.

No, but if you "accidentally" park a semi full of fireworks underneath and "accidentaly" spatked something off, it would be one hellofa show.

Most fireworks are made in China these days, stealing those American jobs, you know. ;-)

Raven-Phile, I can't read any of your posts without hearing you retching (or possibly vomiting) the words . . .

Anyway, shouldn't you be known as r a v e n phile?

And as for the retching Beverly face, I have nothing. I tried all kinds of witty one-liners, and nothing lives up to my usual standard. :(

I guess Gonch's smarminess would sting a bit more if I didn't agree with this guy, not to mention any legitimate "I told you so" from Gonch would require his misconstruing my argument to begin with. That's ok, I'm used to that. :)

So you feel that two pictures - one showing a new handrail and one showing a very small section of new trackbed - justifies the original post? You don't think it was stirring the poop just to stir the poop?

I dunno. Your posts sure made it seem like you expected something and couldn't understand why they'd show a pile of wood unless it was for something pretty important.

Is standard annual refurb on the wooden coasters worthy of a blog post showing the wood?

I guess that's up to the individual. I stand by my original opinion - it's was false hype - wood for nothing special.

Maybe I'm just gullible but why go to the bother of taking the picture, writing the post, and then including this

"We bet you're all pining to know what it's for..."

on one of your most visible marketing tools only to later announce it's just for general repairs?

I'm not sure how I'm misconstruing that.

It's funny that even as horrible as Beverly is, I never fail to drink it every single time I am at Epcot. It has become a family tradition of sorts. My daughter actually likes it.

I'm not going to lie, the less than upbeat tone of this thread is pretty lame. Tony and Tyler didn't imply that this is all for next season. If anything I believe it's a good buildup to the "future deliveries." This shouldn't do anything but fuel future speculations. I mean holy crap, we tare apart Paula's posts of tool sheds and carpenter shops without this much complaining. So stop the crying and let's get back to our wish list of aqua-trax, Geauga Lake imports and what ever else Cedar Point isn't going to put in for next season.

Rant subsiding.... and gone. :)
