I'm just griping that I had to reprofile my signature to make it fit again. Gonna miss that speed hill and that little bump before the turnaround... :)
Not sure how long ago the format changed, but it took me until tonight to fix it on my end.

Well there’s something to focus on for the off season
On this end it just looks like your keyboard has stuck keys.
There’s no hills, it’s just a bunch of dyslexic tic tac toe.
Always has been, now it’s worse.
Missed a full season at CP for the first time since 2007, maybe Sandusky will be back on my travel list next year.... Depends what CP has up their sleeve for 2023.
RideMan, Dave, I had a ride question that came to me last weekend as I was looking at Wicked Twister.
(In the past I remember you always having interesting details about how various rides operate, just thought I would post it here since I saw your post.)
At the top of each "spire" there appears to be a spring or hydraulic bumper or stop. Has that ever come into play when the ride is operating? I have never seen Wicked Twister come within 10-15 feet of it.
Just random curiosity seeing as though they are removing it to California soon......
From experience, I can tell you, yes. You can see on the front and back of the train there is a metal part that sticks out. Once it hit the “bumper” (that’s what we called it), the ride automatically E-stopped. This was during testing only though. It’s what was referred to as an “over shot” and occurred on the back tower.
