Jeff and Pat review this week's news in the amusement industry.
Link: CoasterBuzz Podcast
1. I know the SLC is "T-Squared" and not, "T-Two", but the kids called it that all day and I was too. Podcast time comes and suddenly I find myself spitting it out like I'm talking to an 8 year old.
2. There were two food spots open in the front of the park later in the day - when we got back to the front. Not sure if they were the first time around as it was the spots right before Roadrunner if you're heading clockwise around the park and that's the way we started (thus not being interested in a drink within the first 15 minutes in the park) But still overall, there was an unusually high number of food stops (in the front) and games spots (in the back) that were shuttered or empty.
Just wanted to clear that up before someone corrected me. :)
I experienced the same thing about food at SFKK on my visits each of the last 2 years. Not a park I will be going back to again for a long time.
(now I will shut up until I listen to the whole podcast.)
In my little world, "T-Two" instantly brings images of Arnold as the Terminator and even the show at Universal.
Yeah, Terror to the Second Power, I believe, is technically idea behind the name of the ride, but I never saw it written out with the exception of the ride description in the park map...where oddly enough the name is printed as T-Two rather than T-Squared - so go figure.
Whatever it is, I really didn't think "T-Two" was correct, but if the locals are calling it that...well, then I'm a regular Colonel Sanders. :)

"I dun say to you he daid"
By the way, I'm not a local--I'm from MD--so I guess you can't blame it all on the Kentucky locals.
