This is the 2nd time I've heard of this, what the heck is this HoR & what's up with the name? Does it stimulate eating HoR? ;)
With the photo of DV, I noticed the CR evacuation platform is small & flat, unlike those of regular Boomers. How do they get people off the ends of the train? My guess would be a winch of some kind is used to pull the ends over the platform itself.
Ham on Rye is a Virtual Reality attraction. The way it works is you put on your VR goggles and sit in these very comfortable seats. A person then appears on your VR screen and tells you the situation of what is going on. You are then encouraged to participate while the show continues on by moving you hands all around and yelling aloud. Inside your VR goggles there are sensors that that pick up movements of you hands and head, the more you move around the Higher your score. There is also a microphone in your VR system so that you can communicate with the narrator. It's a quite interesting attraction but a little lame I thought. I got to experience the attraction at IAAPA 2001. The attraction costs I believe $175,000. Oh yeah and by the way, it's a pay as you go attraction. I think it's going to cost $5.00 a head. I hope this was a help.
Well it usually vallies due to the cold weather this winter over here in the SCV. The mechanics were testing it in the cold weather on manual mode and I guess they had the pulley cart let go too early. They shouldn't be testing it in below 65 degree temperatures anyway...
Edit: Well, at least it's becoming a routine now. They re-open it a day after each incident.
