Yeah...there are several places in the ride that are actually "outside the box" (hehe) That's why there are some portions in the ride that are completely dark...

it looks that way but is you look closer at the farther part of the turn u will se the top on it. It is one of the sharp turns so its not as other ouside parts look like. ----------------- I may be from IL, but i sure can't get enough of the FORCE. MF!!!
I hate to do it, but I agree with Walker on this one ;)
I think it was be brilliant of the park, and a sweet rush to go storming by Wicked Twister in an open portion of Disaster Transport. Main drawback to that idea, however, is what do you do when it rains...??? :)
I remember when DT wasn't enclosed but it was called something else. Can someone else provide any info. on it? I was so little I don't remember it that well. I do remember riding DT its first year and waiting for what seemed to be eternity. I remember the theming in-line kinda scared me.
I can't beleive I'm reading this. I knew it was a dead area of the park but come one people. DT is NOT exposed. Keep in mind that when they redid the ride they did NOT paint the entire ride. Most of the trough is still blue. ----------------- Daniel Haverlock magnum count :2166 www.spiritofthepoint.com
It's a bobsled, guys, which means the majority of the trough (before it had a lid) is on the outside of the turn.
It isn't open.

I posted on a thread a week or so ago that I thought it would be cool for CP to take off the "lid" on the external portion where it approaches WT. Somebody smart at CP is listening, and realizes this is a good way to increase the ridership on DT...or so I'm telling myself, LOL. ----------------- Off-season coaster blues got you down, stop by the 'buzz and turn your frown upside-down...

Well, it'd be a neat effect but having the bobsleds open isn't exactly convenient for the park since it makes rain operation impossible...which is probably why they stuck AR in the building to begin with. ------------- * The Legend @ HW * Superman: Ride of Steel @ SFNE * Mondial Top Scan
I don't think they would uncover it...the rain wouldn't matter, since you'd be uncovered for like one second, but the reason Avalanche Run was enclosed was because sand was getting in the track and messing it up.
Thanks for the post Dan! It looked open to me, but I can definitely see that is is not. Dan usually has these kind of things afigured out for sure so he's really the one to go to on these things. Just thought that something might have happened. You have to admit, it is a decieving photo! Later! ----------------- Jeff Walker Future Cedar Point Employee www.coastingohio.cjb.net
