Legend Spiel?

What are the words to the "Don't Look back!" Spiel on Legend? I've lost them.

Umm.. wouldn't it be "Don't Look back!"? ;)

Yep...that's it!

Holiday World's ride ops don't use spiels...they improvise. That's what happens when employees enjoy their work and management trusts them.

The two best improvisors I've ever seen were a guy on Shivering Timbers who could rattle on and get people reved up for minutes, nobody minded they weren't ridding when he was on a roll.

I think his name was Jay.

The other is a blonde guy that worked Phoenix.

He means the recording on the lift hill, Redman.

I always thought the Hamburglar mumbled sone *unintelligible* stuff and then someone (headless horseman?) CLEARLY says "Don't Look Back".

Maybe the *unintelligible* parts ARE in fact decipherable? Paula? Help! :)

The lifthill? Thats easy.


Chuck, who remembers that going off about 7am when Jeff was walking the tracks when he stays in Lake Rudolph :) Nice alarm clock, Huh?

Sorry, chaps, I've only now popped in for a look-see, as the Brits from Discovery Channel have just finished their lovely six-date shoot with us.

Here's the requested text:

Scream your head off but don't ask why
Or the Headless Horseman might pass you by
As you race around the twisted track
Whatever you do, Don't Look Back!

Some of my better work, don't you think? :)

There now, that wasn't so unintelligible after all....must just be the Midwestern accent... ;)

Oh, hush!

I already feel badly enough about our flat American accent after nearly a week with the melodious Londoners.

Have a spot of tea, you'll begin to feel chipper again soon enough ma'am...;)

Paula - is one supposed to hear all four lines at the top of the lift? In all my rides I've only heard "...don't look back."

No...the ride op says it upon dispatch.

I seem to remember different speils from this summer but cant seem to remember the exact wording (allthough I know that one wasnt it).

I love when parks have speils for their rides, CP and HW do it all the time but if I have had ride ops do it on Alpie, Apollo, Beast, Raging Bull, BBW, Hulk and they have all added to the experience. If I could not get my dream retirement job as a Haunted Mansion butler, being a speil guy would be next on my list.

Wow...never heard that either. Odd, considering all the time I hung out in the station during events.

They were saying it last year ('04) when I was there in August Moosh. First time I heard it ever, although I don't recall hearing those first two lines.
