Every year in the fall, as the riding season winds down, we start hearing about reports of track being spotted on highway such-and-such. I know a lot of these turn out to be made up, but my question is, have you honestly ever seen a truck carrying track going down the road?
On our way back to Columbus from Ridefest last year (October 8, to be exact), my wife and I saw a piece of track heading east on I-70. I didn't get a great look at it, but it was orange and yellow, and it looked like B&M-style track. It wasn't until construction began at Dorney that I realized I had seen a piece of Talon!
About 6 years ago I passed a Semi heading south around Ft. Wayne Indiana. On the flat bed was a white piece of an Arrow or Vekoma corkscrew twist (hard to see the rail ends from that distance). Boy did I jump! To this day I can't figure out where it was going.....This was after Vampire was installed at SFKK, not to mention the color difference. ------------- Scale model coasters and rides..... www.angelfire.com/oh4/tk173
I remember when SFA (back then Adventure World) recieved the joker's track.We saw it as we were climbing Roar's lift then later while in line for Mind Eraser we got a reprimand from the ride op for mentioning it to other peeps in line.Not to mention taking the train ride during fright fest (99) just so we could spot S:ROS's track awaiting it's construction for 200.I hope to spot some B&M track real soon for SFA's rumored stand up for 02.
I saw Top Gun's track laying there in the employies parking lot back in 98 but that was before I was a coaster freak and I didn't think much of it. I saw it on Thunder Road's lift. ----------------- I've got laser eyes, and I know what you're thinking. It comes to no surprise, the Christmas lights are blinking.
Jeff said: a lot of people got excited about the Millennium Force track in Cedar Point's former boneyard:
I saw this track while riding Gemini in October 2000. It was sitting in a parking lot to the left of Gemini's lift hill. Also, I saw supports, most likely for Xcelerator(they were the same color and it looked like they were for the overbanked turn).
March last year I saw a Whole bunch of Titan's track out in the parking lot. A few I saw were for the Mid Course break.That track was pretty big. I sure wish I could see more track in the parking lot or on the highway like most of you have been very gratefull to see. I have some pictures of the track somewhere. I'll have to look for them.
