  3. Still that seems a big risk that could be mitigated by their telling people to wear glasses of some sort, or handing out cheap plastic ones, Mr. Roberts. Even if they have someone who can remove it, a lot of damage could be done long before the ride ended.
  4. They said before the train departed that this happens from time to time, and if you can't get it out, they had someone who can get it out for you after the ride.
  5. I miss the train as it used to be, and the landscaping that was part of it. Wow, ember in eye hurts terribly just to even read about, Mr. Roberts. You were lucky you didn't damage the retina. That's scary. They should specify use of goggles or something.
  6. The train at Dollywood still runs on coal. I got an ember in my eye once while riding on it. No permanent damage but it made for a very uncomfortable first half of the ride opening and closing my eye lid and tear tearing up in that eye trying to work the amber out of it.

  11. Interesting and sad read. Cemeteries should never be neglected or abandoned.

  13. Disney World is really having a rough year. Attendance is not what they were hoping it would be and have told cast members that they expect to lay off or fire a total of 28,00 employees , between Florida, the still unopened California parks, Disney cruises and hotels. Disney World has just just laid off 950 employees at the beginning of October 8,857 employees. They had already laid off 6,700 more employees will be laid off or fired December 4th. DISNEY LAY OFFS! My friends who live in Florida are saying when they went, certain rides were only open at certain times. So if you
  14. I miss some of the old rides, but I'm not about to throw away money buying a piece of scrap. To each his/her own. You know the old saying about those who are "soon parted" from their money. Preserving a piece in another ride seems the better thing to do rather than sell junk, imo.
  15. I just read that they added a Vortex track piece to the inside of Mystic Timber's shed. It is hard to see in the shadows on the left hand side of the Mystic's coaster, but added in such a way that it looks like part of the theming that has been there since day one. They say you can spot it if your looking for it when the train stops for the radio.

  17. Yep. Total waste of money in my view, Mr. Roberts. But they will likely make a lot from the sales.
  18. I believe the trains were sent to Carrowinds to keep another old Arrow coaster running so what ever you buy really would just be a piece of scrap metal. Nothing recognizable like a seat.
  19. I can't even begin to imagine throwing away $200.00 on a piece of scrap metal. People must have more money than sense to do that.
