    Bad days

    My worst day was in 1981, when The Beast broke down for 2 hours at the top of the first lift hill.....with me in it! We were forced to walk all the way down the steps on the side.
  2. Now I do feel old. The Bavarian Beetle was my first ride in 1972.
  3. IT's got to be "Wack A Bat".
  4. From what I remember, the lines were usually all the way up the steps.
  5. I rode this every time I went. If you were the one in control, it was fun......if not then it was the opposite.
  6. What is the "block system"? What are the differences?
  7. I found a few, but not of the Bat. I know I have some, but this is the best I have for now. http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w290/schwarry/ki004.jpg http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w290/schwarry/ki003.jpg
  8. Great stuff......thank you very much!!!
  9. I'll do my best to find these things. I pretty sure I have a few articles on The Bat when it re-opened.
  10. I have a lot of newspaper articles and old things from that time. I'm gonna do my best to find them in a few days. I'm sure it's something everyone would want to see.
  11. My bad. I remember a few cable ties, but the main thing they did was put in many supports. I just didn't like the way they looked. It's been so long ago, you just refreshed my memory.
  12. The cables they put in made the ride look real bad. It almost looked like I was going to get tangled in the cables when I was riding.
  13. I'd love to see the photos and hear the theme music. Can you post any of these (especially the music)?
  14. From what I remember of the Bat, the track broke loose because of the stress and vibration. They installed cables all around the track to stablize it, but that didn't work either.
