Oooohhhh - primed!

Although 'primmed' is pretty funny. :)

According to one online dictionary, primmed is the past tense of prim, "To deck with great nicety." I don't like the look of tan primer (or other earthy tones like brown on Gardaland's upcoming Screamin' Squirrel), so I will respectfully disagree with the title.

Its nice to see the Wheel getting attention. That ride was purchased from Old Indiana. ALL the rides bought from that park have given their owners nothing but trouble..... I guess cedar fair found that out too, even though Premier Parks gave it a whole new drive system in 1999.

Now when will they get rid of the drop tower and the horrible Time Warp?

I like the primer color. Tan and grey would be cool, Just so it doesn't turn out like Shockwave at PKD! GASP! They must have been colorblind!

I just wonder if those toilets they removed for the new bath house will be relocated to SFA for their 2005 expansion! :)

The thing that always got me about that photo, coasterpunk, is how the girl on the left is standing on the train.

I kinda like the colors. :)

All that dismanteling and no assembly...looks like they still have a LOT of work to do before opening day.

Has Cedar Fair ever missed an opening? I can't recall one in recent history. I have faith that all will get done before May 7th. *** Edited 3/9/2005 8:07:45 AM UTC by Fun***

This is Cedar Fair, not Six Flags - no sweat!

(putting out the Galvan316 bait in hopes of a sighting - I got my camera and everything :) )

Also look in the 6th row left side (4th car 1st row)where that girls foot is, they must be sisters! :)

That just doesn't feel safe to me. I'm sure it's harmless, but why would the train be designed to allow that? Is that possible on B&M stand-ups?

Just one of those weird things that irks me.

Beemers have taller fronts on each car, about knee high or so to stop people from doing that.

My guess is it could be somthing Togo overlooked like building comfortable restraints. I'm sure the trains could be fitted with somthing to stop people from doing that, like tasers! :)

I'd think that when the train starts up a hill since the car in front will move upward first it could force the persons leg up too, breaking their leg if forced to hard. Thats my guess although I'm sure the person would probably have a better chance of being sturck by lightning then that happening. *** Edited 3/9/2005 9:09:21 AM UTC by coasterpunk***

I had no idea Gl was updating their site with rehab/construction of everything. Thats nice to see. Is the Americana Wheel always completly torn down at t he end of the season or was it just for rehab this time around, I know its not one of the bigger ferris wheels out there. I figured at least they'd normally just take the tubs off for the season and leave the wheel stand, But its not like theres much to re-assemble it beside's putting spokes back up then the tubs. But I was unware of them refurbishing it up for this reason.

They normally leave the whole wheel up. This is a complete refurbish.

I kinda hope they will put back the Music Express and Enterprise as well as the Rocket Ships and Flying Scooters someday

Wow do I feel dumb. I didn't read the captions on those pictures when I happened across them a day or two ago and thought the camera was just blurry =) Way to be observant, eh?

Does anyone know what the color scheme of the coaster is going to be?

If someone mentioned before, I think I forgot.

Wednesday, March 9, 2005 2:54 PM
Yellow and Orange I think are what I was told are the colors. It will look right if they do it just right.
Wednesday, March 9, 2005 3:24 PM
Yes it to be Yellow and Orange. Yellow supports, Orange track
