And a really great doc about Timber Mountain, one of the best flumes out there. It endures to this day.
I don’t know what’s keeping Cedar Point from looking into a similar attraction. It would be an investment but well worth it.

I got irrationally excited when we learned that Garner Holt was on site recently; apparently responsible for the little updates on Mine Ride the past couple seasons.

I'm guessing they played a role in the upcoming Snake River Expedition, and Forbidden Frontier as a whole.

I'm 100% on board; especially with the creative team in-house (meaning, in the Cedar Fair bubble).

Kevinj, the Mine Ride upgrades were all done internally (CP P&D and CP Animation/Tech. Services).

Really? Now I'm trying to remember where/when I read it was Garner Holt. It was a conversation on here somewhere around the time it was done discussing them being at Cedar Point.

Needle in a haystack...

While the upgrades were done internally, they still may have consulted with Garner on the upgrades. That isn't uncommon at Cedar Point.
