As some people may know I am working at the park in the maintenance department this summer. I am very excited for this job! it should be alot of fun and I hope to meet a lot of people from the site. Ill be in maintenance blue most likely with a bruins hat on. Come say hi if you see me!
With this being said, this may be one of my last posts on this site for a while because I am an employee now.
So on to the update:
Yankee Cannonball received some replacement wood on the supports for the first turn.
-There is also some flooding near the station due to the heavy rain, but it should be cleared by opening day
There was a major overhaul on the Xtreme Frisbee in the offseason
-new ride cycle/programming-looks to go higher and spin slightly faster than before
-today i worked on fixing restraints and installing lights
-restraints no longer slam upwards when the ride is over
Saw the Zero Gravity testing
-Did not see any other rides testing but heard that many had been tested
And now for the best part of the day!
-After we finished on the frisbee, we had to shut down Untamed for the night( i was in a group with 3 other people. 1 new employee like me, and 2 returning employees). As we walk into the station he asks me and the other new person if we want a ride! Then I got to go down into the maintenance area and transfer track and then actually underneath the ride behind the station! it was an awesome end to my first day
Ill try and give updates, like for ride closing and scheduled opening on the forum, if I can but I cant give away any secrets from the park
Look forward to meeting up with many of you this summer and working making the park we all enjoy a fun and safe place for everyone!
