We opted not to post a #2017bestnine photo on Instagram, since several of our most popular posts this year were videos
Here are our top five posts from our 71st season:
Number 5: Sunset over Rock the World
The HoliDrone caught this shot of the crowd at Rock the World just as the sun was starting to set behind Thunderbird and our main acts were taking the stage.
Did you hear? For King & Country, We Are Messengers, and Ginny Owens are headlining Rock the World in 2018. We hope to see you there!
Number 4: Exclusive Ride Time with Theme Park Review
Robb Alvey and a group of coaster enthusiasts with Club TPR (Theme Park Review) visited in late July. Here they are posing for a photo before taking an early morning ride on Thunderbird.
Number 3: Off-Season Track Work on The Voyage
Less than a week after we closed for the season, track improvements were underway on The Voyage. Your eyes aren’t deceiving you – those are our Coaster Cats you see near the top of the hill!
To learn more about the improvements being made to The Voyage, be sure to check out the most recent installment of Hard Hat Chronicles plus our Podcast!
Number 2: Mammoth from the sky
The HoliDrone caught this mesmerizing shot from high above Mammoth as seemingly tiny boats make their way around the slide.
Our Instagram followers were in good company when they liked this post. The same video was seen by over 200,000 people when we posted it on Facebook!
…and the most “liked” post on Instagram for the year?
Number 1: A Drone’s Eye View of Mammoth
Another picturesque shot of the world’s longest water coaster – this time the HoliDrone captured a Mammoth boat gliding over the top of a hill as it nears the end of the ride. In the background you can see a couple of boats climbing the lift while another flies under the lift hill.
