Now im not mentioning just any rides, but what is a cut off point, because all of them should have a cut off point because it is too cold.
Resident Arrow Dynamics Whore
There is a point where they can't run the ride any more. When the ride cannot complete the circuit when fully loaded but the wheels have time to cool off, then the ride cannot be safely run. Downtime where a train is stopped on the lift will allow the wheels to cool off. If the train cannot complete the circuit, then you will either have a rollback or an evacuation off the lift.
Chuck, Who was told that Face Off was good to 15* F even though it miss catches and valleys on cool mornings.
Now on the wheel lubrication, unless it is a rebuilt train that has not been broke-in or the temperature falls bellow the normal temperature for the area where it is located, the mechanics can use different weights of grease to keep to wheels moving free. *** Edited 4/11/2006 2:47:05 PM UTC by JLT1997***
A day at the park is what you make it!
At least that was the reason dollywood gave us during christmas when they closed down thunderhead when we were the next ones to get on.) :
what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard.
Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it.
I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.
One thing I always wondered was how Dollywood runs TN Tornado during their winter operation months.
Wild Adventures uses station heaters to run year round. It was in the low forties when I visited one New Years Eve and all coasters were running.
