For those of you who have never ridden an OD Hopkins looper that plan on visiting after the Cliffhanger does re-open, brace yourself on exiting the loop, Shwartzkopf's loops are tame in comparison (Super Duper Looper @ HP and Mindbender @ SFoG).
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.

Dean Teaster’s Ghost Town, The Movie, a tribute to Robert Doyle Teaster, is based on the folklore of Teaster’s great, great grandfather Harmon Teaster, and is further based on the “Internationally Famous Ghost Town Gunfighters,” a troupe of actors who brought the old west to life every day that Ghost Town in the Sky was open."
Thanks for that description of an undertaker. In the Sunday (5/20/07) edition of the Asheville Citizen-Times, there was a map of the park along with the article. There was a ride listed as "Undertaker". I am wondering if this is what they named their scrambler after moving it from its enclosed building (possibly to its original location as Frantic Ferret pondered). By the way, the movie's World Premier is June 2 at the Eagle Nest in Maggie Valley, details at http://www.eaglenestnc.com/listings/ .
The coaster, Cliffhanger, opens JUNE 11. The Inclined Railway will open mid-season. The park wanted to keep the re-grand opening on May 26, 2007 as promised. For all of you that went, did you notice that the tickets were a lot cheaper due to the fact that the rides weren't operating yet...
At this point, the "Undertaker" (scrambler) is running along with most kiddy rides with the exception of "Tumbleweed" (smaller coaster). Maybe more this weekend...
Most people who went to the opening weekend/week will most likely return to ride the rides. The park decided to open most rides at the same time. Some are finishing being painted, such as the "Gunslinger" (swings).
The drop tower has been in place for a couple of weeks and is ready for operation. The deck has been finished, but the ride won't open by itself. I suggest waiting a little longer for other rides to open. As of opening week the upper part of the mountain was closed off, which includes the drop tower and other large rides.
I am going to the park around late June or semi-early July. I'm giving the coaster time to run, because I want to make sure the large rides are open also.
This is based on other people's observation and phone calls.
Known ride titles:
"Gunslinger" (swings), "Geronimo Drop" (drop tower), "Tumbleweed" (small coaster), "Undertaker" (scrambler), "Round-Up" (round up), "Paratrooper" (not sure about the new name), "Cliffhanger" (looping coaster). There are a few more rides that I am not sure about.
I wanted to ask a question and didn't want to start a whole new thread. My question is this: Look at the picture of the trains on Cliffhanger
Are there parts missing from this train? Or are those cables always exposed? Aren't they the cables that release the harnesses? I don't know, this just seems BAD!
