    Looks like the ride has the same restraints as Wonder Woman now:-

    Potentially the abrasions people were getting from the raw seatbelts.

    And there goes the hyper!

    Quite unfortunate as the park could have benefited a lot from a hyper. Seems they were very unsuccessful this year.

    Don't worry, that money will be put to good use giving Cedar Point another new coaster

    Jesus CHRIST.. the voice on that video was the most unenthusiastic person in the planet. But to be honest.. he doesn't do a LOT more then what most people usually know. A few gems here and there but overall, I guess it helps?

    :emoji_sweat_smile: Yes, I know my voice is not the best. I just don't want to sound SUPER fake. It works for now, but I guess I should start voice over classes or something. *shrug*
    As for the video it's suppose to be basic. These are meant for the general public more so that when they see the name in ads or the sort they can familiarize themselves with a bit of knowledge on how it works. Most of this stuff I'm aware enthusiasts will know.

    Thanks for the post,
    I've been wondering where all these sudden views were coming from. :)

    I'll be honest, just be you. Talk like you would to any other enthusiast. Dumbing down terms is easy for the GP, but monotone doesn't help in general IMO. Your content is solid but delivery is not. Just be you! Enthusiasm helps. Being engaged completely helps. You're walking.. start running. :)

    Garden update: It's been a while since we last checked on the garden bed - sadly it looks like the park has returned it back to grass, with just a ghost of a shell left to outline where it once blossomed. Maybe flowers inbound for the spring?
