Was at Kennywood Sunday and it appears Racer received new trains this year? I thought they were just cleaned up, re-painted etc but they were spotless. The chrome and paint was shiney, the seatbelts were new and they tracked really well. Tracked damn nice as well, had two outstanding rides.
Can anyone confirm that the trains are new?
Also, Jackrabbit sports a nice new logo along with its new belts. It's a rabbit with a jetpack on, each train has it bolted on the front of the car. *** Edited 5/23/2005 3:41:47 AM UTC by eightdotthree***
I was wondering what the deal was with those trains. At EastCoaster it was announced that the coaster would be receiving new trains but people were later saying that the older trains were going to be rehabbed.
yeah the trains are new. i work at the racer/rabbit and i like the new trains. I only went on it 3 times so far and it feels the same to me. I can't really tell if a coaster changed or not. oh and CoastinKatie i don't think the jack rabbit ever ran 3 trains. I mean since i work there, it would be impossible to do that. Now with the sensor system, you can't have a train on unload, load and on the lift hill. You would have so many e-stops. maybe back in the days when it was all manual that could happen. But it could not have been recent. *** Edited 5/23/2005 5:59:30 PM UTC by PGH_Steeler***
the belts on the JR are like Air plane seat belts. some people can't seem to figure out how to put them on lol. yes you can make them tighter too. Its weird, i don't see why people try to make it super tight. Don't they remember last year when they were super loose? I think it's funny seeing people pulling at it making it as tight as they can.
