Aaron, nice pics.... Doing a little trespassing, eh? ;) I was there yesterday as well, right before the skies darkened, and man, did I like what I saw. I am very very excited for this puppy to test. That first turnaround is sweet, and so tight! Yes! ------------------ Baby, you can drive my car.........- Yes, I am gonna be a star.
I really like the way this site is layed out. the ride diagram with the circles of what the picture is, is a great help when trying to imagine the location. ondrew ------------------ p.s. contrary to popular belief i am not an idiot nor i am i a child.
Nice pics, thanks! I'm still a little confused how the top of the lift and the top of the second hill can both be 75' high as your drawing suggests unless its measured from the ground and the coaster is build on as slope.
------------------ A park without a hypercoaster is like a fish without a bicycle.
This coaster is going up quick!Just to think in a few short months we coaster starved Northwesterners will be riding this bad boy! Thank you Aaron for keeping us up to date on the construction of Timberhawk.
------------------ Meet me at the PNE on April 17,2003. Happy 45th birthday,Coaster!
My response: "I do, I *dooooooo*.....August, baby....:)
oh, and 'Moosh, the pics certainly look like the coaster sits on a pretty decent slope, so no worries about valleying in the first drop, eh...;)...I know you weren't *concerned*, just teasin' ya...it's SO easy, and yet SO much fun...:) ------------------ Dr. Thrill IS my family practitioner Would you just LOOK at what you've done to CoasterBuzz - you're going to have to clean it up ;)

Yeah, I don't get that either. How can it go from 75 feet to 75 feet again? How is the terrain this coaster's being built on? Lots of hills and vallies? That would make sense.

The lift hill is in the middle of the ride with the major portions of the ride on both ends of the coaster. The drop is going to be 80+ feet, and will go through the lift hill, so it will be mighty interesting. I saw the mystery section yesterday, and I don't know what it's for either, but I suspect it is a section for the top of the lift, and or the section just prior to the first drop? The terrain of the ride is mostly flat, although the second hill, and turnaround are built on a slope at the northern end of the ride. That is also where the very sharp corner, combined with the highly banked track, is. It's gonna get ugly! ;) ------------------ Baby, you can drive my car......... - Run Away!!!!
I actually forgot to put the link at first and then I went back and edited the post to add it. You responded about 3 minutes after I posted the original so maybe you did it before I had a chance to add the link. Don't feel too silly.
