An Epic Battle . . .
There was a chill in the night air as November settled into Dorney Park. The chill was sudden and the waters of the Lake were still warm enough to create a thick layer of fog just above the water.
Hercules slept atop his hill unaware of anything that stirred deep in the waters of the Lake. With the fog as it’s cloak, Hydra crept out of the water and began its ascent toward the mighty Hercules.
The first strike came as lightning, powerful enough to shake Hercules from his slumber. The beast showed no mercy while it exacted its revenge. Hercules turned to face his attacker and was greeted by three of the serpent’s heads. The beast had grown to be just as tall as the hero.
Without his club, Hercules could only fight with his fists and struggle to overcome the monster. The ground shook with incredible force as the two mighty beings fought for the rule of the hill. Hydra struck Hercules with six more venomous lunges.
As the battle wore on, Hercules became weak, for the venom of Hydra overtook him. This was unlike anything Hercules had ever faced before. The dawn was racing nearer as Hydra finally shook Hercules from his foundation and defeated the once proud hero. The sun rose early that morning to meet the new master of the hill . . .
There's even more. Interested?
Grown to be as tall as Herc (meaning it's height is the same as Herc's?)
"first strike came as lightning...six more venomous lunges"...seven inversions? or the first strike as the first drop and six inversions?
Perhaps fog theming? Like some sort of fog generator for the first drop? That would be awesome if possible...

Joe, always the smartass
I can't help thinking though it doesn't take much to beat old hercules. I mean geez, a teddy bear beat out hercules ;). http://www.geocities.com/wcoasterpoll/wcprs03.htm
Joe, who thinks Hydra is going to be one of the top two attractions to debut in 2005.
Hmm, Pre-lift inversion maybe??
Joe "I love you mOOSH!" C.
I don't write this. Someone in the PR department does.
New stuff will be here on Sat.
I do know this, tho: the discussion about the two pics of twisted track in the closed Hydra forum from yesterday is not what everyone thought it was. Those two pics are showing the SAME piece of track from different angles, not two pieces that could form an inversion.
mOOSH [loves Joe, too...but not in "that way"]

But I thought...I thought...:(
Rob, I dunno, we'll just have to wait and see perhaps? ;)
