Tony Clark posted a cool photo of Stan Checketts standing on top of Power Tower to his Twitter account:

Love seeing the Wildcat again. Also no TTD, Millennium Force, and the Giant Wheel is still behind the train station.

Unfortunately, the screen is still in front of it.

This Isn't A Hospital--It's An Insane Asylum!

Didn't I read somewhere that he does that on all S&S towers when they are built?

RideMan or Red Garter Rob might know for sure, but I think he was fined by OSHA for that.

Why would he be fined? He is clearly wearing a harness with double lanyard fall protection. It is not like he is free climbing the thing. I don't see how him being up there is any different than someone maintaining that beacon he is standing on or climbing any other tall structure.

Actually there was already a thread from 6 years ago about this. My bad thought it was new-ish.
