It's a really beautiful train. I was really impressed! I haven't been on a ride with Timberliners yet, but they impress the crap out of me. And from what I hear from people who maintain the rides, they sure help a lot to reduce track maintenance.

Why do all dinosaur themed rides rip off the logo of Jurassic Park?

Besides using a similar font, what else is even remotely similar to this?

Another advantage I see that the Timberliners have, based on my experience on Wooden Warrior, loading is easier and quicker. No seatbelts for the guests to sit on and/or fiddle with and also don't need check by the ride ops. Ride ops needn't bend over so far to reach and check the lapbar. (And they're not reaching towards your private zone).

I am so excited for the direction TGG's taken with their rides. They look like they pack so much into a small area, that it's non-stop until the brakes. I really need to get out and try the Timberliners, too.

Mike, it's not a clone. Wooden Warrior looks longer, but that could be the way it's laid out, but they're definitely not clones.

Too bad more parks didn't install these instead of all the spinning mice recently. Wooden Warrior is a lot of fun.

How about a Dueling Warrior?

No. Very similar concepts, but the ride layout is totally new. (Although I do LOVE the fact that both rides incorporate a tunnel)... :)

Yeah, it's been a coupla years since those wonderful rides on WW, so I wasn't sure. After watching this animation a coupla times more...and reading the responses contained herein from you and Tek...I realize they're not one and the same.

Because ever since 1923 when the Neuland font was created, people have used it for expressing the ideas of "primitive" in nature. Including Gary Goddard and the Landmark group who did all of the imaginary "theme park" stuff for the movie, and eventually the theming for the real life theme park attractions. I presume that included the generation of the logo and use of the "inline" variant of the Neuland font for the "park logo".

FYI Clark Grizwald. TGG hasn't ruled out spinny cars or launched or backwards or face to face or............. :)

While the cars are different than whats on Lost Coaster, The same thing can be done with them with cars sitting back to back or facing each other. :)
