Hydra is complete!

Friday, December 3, 2004 10:08 AM
Hi everyone!

My mom was taking me to school today and i asked her to drive by dorney to see how hydra was coming along. we went on dorney park road and saw a group of people standing on the hill near steel force's helix, and they were putting the last piece in! it went in by crane and had a flag attached to it, so i'm sure it's the last piece. very cool! and that final helix looks really intense. i was late for school because of it.

Anyway, if anyone's nearby dorney, definitely go take a look.

You kids just don't appreciate your education nowadays...

You shouldn't sacrifice your in-school hours just to look at a coaster. (even if it was a study hall or open period) Next time, do it "after" school.

Hey John, I said I was LATE for school, not that I skipped school, and since it IS an open period and our teacher is always eager to hear Hydra updates, i don't think it was a big problem, not that it's any of your business.

I do appreciate my education, and i do very well in school, so you really shouldn't make such critical comments without knowing all of the information involved.

Danny,

I personally (recently being a college grad myself) think it's cool that you are able to drive by Dorney on the way to school in the mornings. If I were in your shoes, I would have done the same thing. It's good to see that you took all things into consideration before being late (1st period being open, cool teacher like that). Plus it's cool that you saw the final piece being put in!

Oh, please, John...were you always on time to every class?

I know I sure the hell wasn't...oh wait...not the best example to use. ;) ;)

Seriously, though, if his mom didn't thank it was an issue who are you to step in and say otherwise?!?

john peck, you do realize that is dark after school gets out right? Darn time changes! LOL....

Ok maybe it's not dark at 3pm, but it sure feels like gets dark that early.

Danny - Also as teacher, I am very disappointed in you for being late to school just to see a coaster. However I can't say that I am not guilty of skipping school to go to a press event while I was doing my undergrad work. ;)

Swoosh: this is why God has given us " the weekend." It's light during the day, and no school either!

ll they start testing soon or will they wait until the spring?

The track is done but there is still a lot of work before testing. The station needs to be built. All the electrical work, including proximity sensors, need to be installed. And, of course, trains need to be delivered.

I suspect testing will occur in the Spring.

Sounds like a cool teacher Danny! Wish mine were that cool way back when. ;-) Well, my 6th grade teacher was a coaster enthusiast....the dude was about 65 at the time and I remember him cursing on the Beast during a field trip. LOL!

Man I miss that guy. :-D
