Crazy things you hear while waiting in line...

While standing in line for Steel Vengeance today, the guy behind me has been talking for 10 minutes to his girlfriend about how they took Mean Streak completely apart and put it all back together again differently. They are presently highly confused about how there aren’t any new holes in the wood. We’re talking complete dismantlement here. Sounds like a lot of work. Coincidentally they are the exact people that banged their car door into mine in the parking lot.

On Friday, when I was waiting for SV to open, I heard some guy in front of me say they took out the dinosaurs because maintenance costs were too high. I doubt it costs much to maintain plastic statues.

Thabto- I’m guessing the maintenance cost was ZERO because they looked pretty rough after the first couple years and then were trashed towards the end of their run... My wife and kid enjoyed a walk-through each visit but I thought the dinos looked terrible becise they weren’t maintained at all. And it wasn’t just at CP, either.


But then again, what do I know?

Just a thought: Do any of us actually know what dinosaurs are supposed to look like?

I’m pretty sure they didn’t have holes in their side with styrofoam coming out. I’m also pretty sure they weren’t covered in spider webs.

I wonder if they were covered in gull poop.

We were at Kings Island over the weekend, and I overheard this kid tell his dad that Vortex goes up the lift hill like Maverick and dropped straight down. Gotta love how kids talk. Lol
