If you ever see a coaster running like this - don't get on! ;)

Disclaimer - Obviously, this is a stitched photo. The good folks at Dollywood know how to run Thunderhead. :)

LOL! Very cool, I think I've seen that done with Revolution at SFMM.

Besides the trickery, that's a really nice photo of the coaster. Captures the archs of the ride well.

HeyIsntThatRob?'s avatar Reminds me of the beginning of the movie "House on Haunted Hill." Where the Hulk had some major blocking violations going through the cobra roll.

I wonder if people out there actually thought that the ride was filmed that way ;)

Fun's avatar Gotta hand it to you Sire G, that was a good stitching job. Only 2 seems, that I can see.

rollergator's avatar Re: Hulk...yes there are people who visit IoA, have seen the movie, and wonder (aloud) how they managed to fix the coaster after the filming of HoHH.... :)

Thank goodness for duct tape! ;)

Incredible job with that photo! I'm always amazed by how well people can do mom is really good at stitching together and editing photos at well, I'm really envious of those skills!

Besides, knowing how crazy I am, I'd probably end up getting on the ride anyway ;)

Haha no I'm not giving Patrick the finger

It's Thunderhead... I'd still ride it.
Watch the tram car please....

eightdotthree's avatar Really nice shot.

How did you get the seams so good?

That's a nice shot, and I wish I had those photoediting skills. :)

As for the 2 seams, I see them too.. almost dead-center, there's a handrail that is slightly off, and right underneath it there's a "matching" cable. That's the only thing I can see, though.. and I do have to confess that I was looking for it based on Fun's comments. Otherwise, I probably wouldn't have noticed.

Wasn't there a pic in the forums not too long ago that wasn't doctored, but because of the angle it looked like there was a car on a coaster? (My memory hasn't been the best the past couple of days due to a splitting headache :( )

Forget the block violation, if they got the second train ready that fast, someone is probably not wearing their seatbelt.

How about a REAL block violation:

At Luna Park, in Beirut.
