  1. I stumbled across this home movie from 1978 on YouTube while looking for Rolling Thunder videos, enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-B_8ZgJXkY
  2. Went on a social distancing kayak ride today on the Prospertown lake with a friend that I used to work with at the park with, and I saw this ancient sign that says "Private No Trespassing S. Switlik" not sure if anyone has shared this but I thought it was pretty cool it's still there after all these years.
  3. Thanks guys! Yeah it was kind of a bummer but we made the best of it at home, everyone stay healthy out there!!
  4. I know I was thinking the same thing, I gained interest in the park in 2008 after seeing GASM's loop in the safari and wondering why it was there so i looked it up and found this site. Worked at the park from 2014 as a games attendant, 2015-16 as a rides TM at Super, and 2017-18 as the Supervisor of Super. It's hard to believe i wanted to work there so bad now it's all behind me now, including the fact that I met my current girlfriend there that I've been with for 2 years now. 11 years can really slip passed you, but the memories last forever!!
  5. I haven't posted in here for a few years but i'm literally shook
  6. Theres one available on ebay.
  7. Super, in fact does have the heaviest trains, same track design except for the pretzel loop where there is more stress on the bottom, thicker track.
  8. Awesome! Always wanted to see a picture of them.
  9. It's been a stressful few weeks, we are so understaffed we have no ride entrances anymore. After school every day this week i have a 4-11 shift right after a 7-1:30 school day, rides people are very nice people but if we are little cranky it's because we like never have time to rest, once weekends only roll around we should be good again.
  10. I got stuck on the skyride for the first time ever today, very odd feeling.
  11. Excited to get back to work this weekend, took off lat weekend for a wedding. Last day of school is Friday, got my permit today, and finally upgraded my 4s for the 6, whats next? promotion to supervisor? haha nah not this year
  12. I did games last year and i found it fun and enjoyable, the best part was seeing peoples reactions to things. Talking on mic and annoying people was fun also haha. If you did do games try to get into the square section, that's the section with 3 point (best game to work) you just have to be on your A game with handling change, and quickly, after a while it's a piece of cake as long as you stay even hope this helps!
  13. I guess El Diablo's trains are really easy to get on and off for maintenance if needed. It would be cool if they sold some of the metal benches as souvenirs, i have a bench from Shea Stadium which is pretty cool, but it's all going to be scrap.
  14. yeah superman has had shorter lines this year (kind of confusing me too), but over the weekend the line was to the second and third que, but somehow we managed to kill that line down to a station wait (park was still crowded), expect fast dispatches on super this year, great crew.
  15. I never realized how much work actually went into building rapids, very informative spotlight!! Be cool to see more like these!! Keep it up!! ...and scream machine huh
  16. Dam i really underestimated El Diablo. Great addition to the park!
  17. Oh yea, we have certain things to say to a guest, we aren't allowed to mention anything about a guest without them telling us first hand, unless its a situation that the guest cannot ride superman due to the positioning of the ride (i think you get what i mean) and even for that we have a way of telling them nicely that they won't be able to ride, which hurts because you never want a guest to be sad, but safety is always priority. But for a situation like that, i feel they would know not to ride while pregnant, so lets hope she didn't.
  18. Found out today I'm working Superman! Couldent be more excited!!!!
  19. Oh hey Shawn and it's so nice to see a new trip report, great job Harry!
