Great find, finally get to see Bat in action (aside from that promo vid).

I just remember it being "strange" but then again I was only 10. ;)

One problem: Where are we going to get 1.21 jiggawats of power AND enough road to ge a Delorean up 88 mph?

Well there's plenty of concrete there for the road. ;)

We could fit it to Millenium Force and run it in a lightning storm.

Of course, it wouldn't be the right gauge for the track. But then again that didn't seem to be a problem for Doc Brown when he mated their DeLorean to railroad track.

If they can put an Indy Car on The Big One, any-thing's possible!

See, Nobody believes me when I say the park used to have ten times the color, Flora, Rides and charm that it has now. This isn't a knock on CF. Just every replacement since Beast has actually removed or changed things for the worst asthetically. OLFOF was a big Plus under paramount but when KI, had the dolphin show, Encyclopidia Britanica monorail, with animals, Three times the number or rides including it was ENCHANTING.

I completely agree with you. All of the original Taft parks have lost most of their master theming and charm, first from KECO's neglect then from Paramount's poor attempts to make the parks into movie parks.

King's Dominion suffered the least and has kept its overall theming the most, but it still has lost some wondeful things like Lake Charles, the railroad and the Lost World. The feel of Carowinds has pretty much been ruined forever as almost all of the original theming has been destroyed and King's Island doesn't have a lot of overall theming left these days either.

Cedar Fair is the worst at theming and charm. Do you really think they will improve it? They lead the way in cutting down trees for pavement and installing unthemed rides.
