Timber Wolf received yet another trim brake for the 2007 season! It is located on the dip into the flat turnaround, so now the final third of the ride is even less interesting. :(
Otherwise, we had a good time. Patriot is much better now...no longer as dull as Mamba's second half. We ran into Railblazer/David toward the end of the night.
When we walked out to the parking lot, a rush of security came running passed us to the north end of the parking lot (where we were parked). According to other bystanders, there was some kind of incident involving guns going on out there, so we stood around chatting for a while. Then the security peeps started running back to the park gate like they were being chased by velociraptors. No idea what was going down, but we decided to leave our position, just in case the two incidents converged. ;) We walked over to David's car, and then he drove us around the excitement and dropped us off at my truck.
So anyone know about what the heck was going on that night? *** Edited 6/6/2007 10:16:37 PM UTC by Acoustic Viscosity***
TWolf has to go! You KC fanboys can get your wish and put in a GCI...as long as VF gets a beamer.
Pull all of the Dummers and Sinns out of the ground for all I care! What a joke.
CF's answere to everything that goes wrong with a coaster...TRIM BREAK! The sound of those two words is starting to irk me.
Other than that it sounds like there was more excitement outside the park instead of in.
Not if anyone cares, but I'll probably have a full TR of my visit to WOF on 6/3 in the coming days.

WTN: If I had to choose between Patriot and Renegade, I'd have to choose the latter. And I've wanted a hometown B&M for just about an eternity.
No one in particular: Da Babies and I thought TW reeked. And FKA CBaby will definitely tolerate rough, as long as it's also interesting...
No headrests, No ratchet bars and No brakes. It was smooth as silk and fast as a BANSHEE. It had massive strong floating and ejector air time. That flat turn under the first turn (I'm assuming this is where the new brake is) was like a fast smooth Kennywood T-bolt - up on one wheel ridin'!
With some TLC, and maybe a nice set of won't-beat-up-the-track-as-much Mellenium Flyers, this ride could be great again. Come on, it's only 100 feet high. Not the same probs as Mean Steak (old joke) or Texas Giant...
I don't think that TWolf needs to be torn down. I just think that besides the structural work that has occurred, we need to retrack the whole thing and make sure that the gauge is the same as the train so that we don't have the Dinn shuffle going on -- or better yet get new rolling stock that was custom designed to work with that track.
Playa. I'm not complaining about what we got. I love Renegade, realy. But VF needs another steel looper to round out the set. Thats all I meant to say. So why not a B&M? Granted they could stand to be more intense these days.
Back on topic (whatever it is now).
Would you rather have the old TW restored to whatever glory it had, or a bright shiney new woodie?
Is there something about the land TW is built on or is it purely structural issues?
Secondly, there is no issue with the land.
