There’s no denying, Thunderbird is getting a lot of love and attention this fall.
It’s the new coaster on the block, and there’s lots of interest in how construction is coming along. (Spoiler alert: it’s coming along really, really well – stay tuned for more next week. Maybe even watch the Thunderbird ConstructionCams. On Monday.)
And so, the “Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!” wail from Jan Brady echoes in my head.
Keeping in mind that we’re already planning two more Hard Hat Chronicles in the next two weeks – both about Thunderbird – we just had to first turn our attention (and cameras) over to our other favorite children.
Because we love them all equally.
The Voyage gets an early Christmas present, delivered by a crane.
What is it?
A 1,400-pound sprocket. Normally, it’s located just past the top of the lift hill. The lift chain wraps around it.
So it’s very important.
Out with the old; in with the new.
The Legend gets some track work …
And, The Raven scores some off-season maintenance, too (did you catch the pun? hint: Raven is 20 years old in 2015):
Want to know more? Of course you do … so here’s a Wooden Coaster Hard Hat Chronicles:
Happy Thanksgiving to all! Now more than ever, it’s a very special holiday for us all.
Sprocket? Was that a “Spacely Sprocket”?
Wow it’s so hard to believe The Raven is 20 and The Legend is 15! Seems like it was just yesterday! So incredibly happy for and proud of you all! Keep up the amazing work!
