What coasters have had on-ride photos that one day, just vanished? I know that some reasons may include poor quality or low income, but some very popular rides have had removed on-ride photo systems.
Twoe of which I know of are Viper (sfgadv) and B:TR (sfgadv). Viper went way to fast for the technology at that time, and almost every picture was blurred. Also, the camera was mounted too low and faced inwards, so the second row of each car wouldnt come out. B:TR was closed because of a "wideness problem" as only the first to seats would be captured. I've heard rumors of kumbas also being shut down, but the cameras are still in place.
Anyone else know any other coasters that have had this problem?
----------------- How much more floorless can they get?
lol...i saw this topic title and i immediately thought of hercules....it was my first year at dorney last year and herc. is my favorite coaster. I know...everyone thinks im weird, and I am. I so would love an on-ride pic from hercules. ----------------- Rollercoasters are my life, I think about them more than I think about....wait, thats all I think about :)
I think Desperado used to have one a while ago. When I went for Thanksgiving I thought I was going crazy because I couldn't find it. ;) ----------------- You can't spell my hometown's name with out "Lame"! aLAMEda...:)
Well, SFGAM's Batman's photo booth is about a mile away from the exit...even though (I think) you are forced to walk that way, it just seemed odd for it to be way over 'there'. ----------------- -Eric Creator of Indiana Beach Online - http://indianabeach.8k.com/index.html
SFWoA's Serial Thriller's Photo Booth wasnt open all last season. ----------------- Gravity knows no force, like Millennium Force. breathe. You have just broken ten world records. Beyond coaster....Giga Coaster.
T2 at SFKK had one at one time but is no longer around and B:TR at SFSTL is nonexistant as well. The only guess I have is that the park just wasn't making any money off these photos. ----------------- God please let SFKK get something in 2002. ANYTHING!!
No Peabody. I was lying to see if anyone would catch it. ;)
I know for a fact that AE had on-ride photos up until 98 or 99, I'm guessing due to low popularity it was taken out. We used to ride it all the time and never saw any photos purchased toward 97-98. I believe they took the picture right at the bottom of the first drop out of the station.

SFWoA's Big Dipper had one right between the first drop and second hill, their Mind Eraser (Vekoma Boomerang) had an on-ride photo after the vertical loop, and the Raging Wolf Bobs had an on-ride photo placed at the drop following the first turnaround. All three were using black and white glossy photos. I'm not sure when they were removed... but they are all no longer there (the camera may still be on ME, but I am not 100% certain)
