Yes, that is an awesome lift. I am by no means a coaster fan, but I love Mystery Mine.

Ya know what that lift hill reminds me of? Anyone remember the old ride that they used to have at state fairs and such where you went stright up on your back like that in the center, then came out and went back down to the bottom on a spiral track? I don't know if I'm describing it clearly, but it was really cool to be laying on your back as you ratcheted upwards. I imagine RRR will be much quicker/smoother.

I remember which ride you're talking about Barb...I was always afraid of our local carnivals...some of the rides looked scary for real.

I remember that ride well,what i remember most was how I was 12 years old and 110 pounds or something like that and it was so incredibly tight and uncomfortable in that seat.I can't imagine many adults fitting in that ride,it was also rough as could be.I'm sure RRR will be a nicer more comfy ride.

Yeah, I haven't been to a carnival/fair since I was small. I saw a Dateline special on carnival rides & how halfassedly they are put up.

And those carnies can be downright sadistic too. I remember when I went to one of those local not-even-a-step-up-from-a-carnival type local amusement parks with a friend (we were freshmen in high school) and we asked the carny running the Zipper if it was tame. Amazingly, we'd never seen it before and it looks kinda tame when it's not running. He said, "Oh yes, yes," so we got on and quickly discovered the truth. The place was nearly deserted, so he left that sucker running for what felt like an eternity while we were screaming and yelling at him to stop. Thankfully we were actually pretty durable and were really having a good time, but it would have been a mess if we really were chicken!

Then there was the time DH, me, and two of my nieces were riding a carnival tilt--whirl in Wisconsin. Three of us were immune, but but one of the nieces turned out to be a ride wimp. We were the only ones there, so the carny let it run a looooooooooong time, and of course the three of us yelling "More! More!" drowned up my suffering niece's screams. She was literally green when we got off, and the poor carny actually felt bad but the rest of us were snickering like the cruel souls we are...my family takes Darwinism seriously, even among its own members.

What I am hearing is that they should begin cycle testing within the next two weeks. Lets just hope that this is not delayed as well.

You are an evil woman...that sounds like something I would do too!

I watched a video at youtube.com
and it had a video that had workers putting up the last piece of the track of Rip Ride Rockit!

All they have to do is put up the cart and to the safety test... AND IT'S DONE!
