For real, but come on... Will it happen?

Does Todd know anything about what's going on? There has got to be a con to all these pros.

Will they attempt to move the Cyclone as well? hmmm

Nah, the Cyclone and the WonderWheel are there to stay, both are landmarks.

They couldn't move the Cyclone. It might smooth out some of the kinks, which would be a tragedy. Aaaah, the exquisite pain of that ride! I wish I had a nickel for every vertebra it's wrenched!

Ugh, especially if you ride in the back car.


Oh, man......

There is ONLY the back car for speed and excitement!

The front car is drooping half way down the hill before it drags the back car over the top which THEN allows train to reach top speed and a whip turn.

G force can be heavier in a front sat in a turn or loop but the back car gets the free flyin' thrills.

Best example of that is on Space Mountain at Disneyland where front and back are like two different coasters. Front seat you are JAMMED down into the seat, very intense...back seat your floating and being whipped around the turns. Both are cool. Middle seat? Stay home...for wimps. :)

My inner cynic thinks this is all political grandstanding.

'fraid so...but there is a slight chance...

Addy, that's F%#@ed up!! They should get the Cyclone working right before they screw up Coney's chance!!!
