On Ride Photo Placement and Poses

Saturday, June 8, 2002 8:39 AM

I was wondering where would the best placement for a photo shoot be. Would it be good at the end of the first hill with everyone surprised? Or maybe when there is psycho airtime? How about on a inversion!? Well I think a bad place to have a photo is on the launch on a launch coaster, i.e. Volcano and FOF. But poses are so much fun when you know where the cameras are. I like to be headless and put my shirt over my head and point. It would be cool to get a whole train to act like they were sleeping during the shoot. What are some wacky and creative poses you can think of?

An on-ride on an inversion would be cool!

I have seen some pretty nasty poses but I won't go there. And of course I have seen the old friendly finger.

I think a on-ride photo in an inversion would be awsome! What a idea cdrpoint.

Worst photo position = Son of Beast. You'd think with a 214 foot drop they could put it in a better place other than right before the lift hill.

SfStl had a photo in the loop on the ninja but they took it out a couple of years ago.

If I remeber correctly the Orient Express has its on-ride photo when you are vertical while in the Kamikaze Kurve (boomerang).

Hahaha I had forgotten all about SOB's crazy On-Ride photo spot! Wonder why they did that???

I always though it would be kinda cool to have the on-ride photo taken just as you are going over the first drop.

Best guess... it's the only time the cars would be still enough to take a picture. :) But you have to remember, that comes after a 50 drop out of SOB's station so you're not exactly slowly coasting to the lift hill.

On the Vortex, there is one in the middle of the boomarang inversion. Also, it would be more fun if the picture thing was blended in to the rest of the theming. Like on the Wild Thronberries River Adventure at PKI, they have the camera just out in the blue, totally noticable. It would be cool if they had one of the character pretending to take their pic with an actual model of a camera. Like they would be taking your pic but instead of it being out in the blue, the thing that takes your picture is inside that fake camera that the character is holding up. That was it's themed better. Get it?

That would be cool Lewis on themed rides, but it wouldn't work on all coasters cause not all are themed.

Stealth was good, on the loop I think, as is DLP Space Mountain, on the drop before the LIM launch.

I like how Lightning Racer has it's on-ride photo right in the tunnel. Since of the water and theming around the tunnel, you really won't expect it.
