PointBuzz posts spring preview, Magnum photos

Posted Monday, April 27, 2009 3:56 PM | Contributed by Jeff

PointBuzz has posted a number of photos from Cedar Point, as the park works to get the park ready for opening day. The photos show construction of the new interactive fountain on the main midway, as well as several photos of Magnum XL-200, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year.

There are some seriously geek-tastic photos in that bunch. :)

Good stuff, guys.

Wow, Magnum looks really red in that lift hill photo.

Cool shots. I like the Midwayvision shot from the bottom of the lift best.

Yeah, not everyone would take photos of prox switches and control panels. :)

Correct, and that is why I appreciate those photos so much. That's the part of the hobby that geeks me out. I love seeing how all these rides are constructed and how they do (and sometimes don't) work.

I do not, and at my age, probably never will get up close and personal with ride systems and maintenance.

Thanks, guys!

Oh...and prox sensors can be sexy. ;)

Proximity sensors, push buttons, and enclosures are sexy... but do you know the part numbers? ;)
