This has been said a thousand times....ride employees know nothing more that you. I worked there and they don't tell you anything. Not even the higher ups know until corporate tells them. What the employees tell you is completely opinionated.

Ditto, works for me, though the audio is really low, turning the speakers to max though and the sound is still clear.

picture quality makes it hard to make out the plan.

I will say I am impressed with the over-all quality though. I expected to see the video freezing and going out every now and then. It's good.

When you get to the top, and you hear that click, you better hang on, because your coming down quick!

It was assuredly something to do with 40 ft. What it was I have no idea.

Board member is suggesting a 40 foot tunnel to alleviate the need for the variance. What an idiot.

I think they mean 40ft section of track that goes underground.

165-125=40. They only get the height variance if not having it is not an option. He was trying to say they don't need to go over 125 because they could just go underground...not exactly convenient.

No...those graphs show the heights at the different parts of the ride course...showing that only the initial hill/drop is the only variance requested...unless you were referring to the board not on the easel....

Also, many Derpy comments from the residents (as usual) haha
