I'm assuming Raptor is the one you're talking about. Thank you.

*Chuckle* Actually it was Maverick. Definitely have to go back and check out some more ! I guess Raptor should probably be right at the top of the list given what this thread is all about ;)

Do you have an alarm that goes off once a year or something to remind you to resurrect this thread? ;)

I've been meaning to do this poem for some time now. So hope ya'll enjoy! :)

Twas the night before opening day and all through the park,
not a ride was stirring, not even Skyhawk.
The Skyride cabins were hung on the cable with care,
in hopes that guests soon would be there.

The trains were parked all quiet on their tracks,
while maintenance did their last and final checks.
And Ouimet in his office and Hildebrandt in his cap,
knew it was almost time to wake the park from its nap.

When out on the midway there arose such a clatter,
they sprang from their offices to see what was the matter.
Away to the front of the park they flew like a flash,
past Cedar Downs, occasionally stopping to pick up trash.

The moon on the track of a newly installed ride,
gave the head honchos a huge sense of pride.
When, what to their wondering eyes should appear,
but a crowd of enthusiasts, eager to start the year.

With a particular group, so lively and abuzz,
they knew in a moment, it must be pointbuzz.
More exited than ever their members came,
as they whistled, shouted and called rides by name;

"Millennium! Maverick! Magnum and Dragster!
Raptor, Mantis, Twister, and Gatekeeper!
To the front of the lines to the top of the hills,
we shall marathon, marathon, marathon them all!"

As riders that before the 2012 season end,
knew Gatekeeper was a ride to start a new trend.
So up to the front gate they gathered in mass,
with fanny packs of stuff, not one forgetting their pass.

And then, all of a sudden, their attention turned swift,
to the tell tale sound of a train going up the lift.
And before they figured out what was making the sound,
down the drop a train went, falling to the ground.

It was Gatekeeper, a wing coaster 170 feet tall
a ride enthusiasts had been watching since last fall.
A coaster full of hills and inversions abound,
with a front gate statement, it was sure to astound.

It's size, how grand! It's colors, how bright!
It's trains so large, lit up in the dark night!
The capacity could eat up, in no time, a crowd,
and its supports were as bright white as a cloud.
The seats sat 2 on each side of the blue track,
and with a good crew, it's sure not to stack.
The looks from the crowd gave the management joy.
They could not wait to let them ride their new toy.

Hildebrandt was happy, just like a jolly ol elf,
and tried to hold back his joy, in spite of himself.
A quick word to the anxious crowd he gave,
telling them to wait a bit longer and to be brave.

He spoke only those words and went straight back to work,
making the crowd more anxious, they thought "what a jerk!"
And, along with Ouimet, both ready to start a new day,
made their way to their offices, back down the midway.

They sprang to their feet, to their teams gave a whistle,
And away they all flew like a swift and steady missile.
But the crowd heard them exclaim, as they walked out of sight,

"Happy New Season to all, and to all a good night!"
