    I was just curious. I think you and Andy made a video about the Orlando Eye a long time ago and was thinking that you might visit some of the smaller areas outside of the parks but it's no big deal. :cheers:

    Yeah, they are way better than FSMAGIC.COM. All they talk about over there is what's the best snack treat at Fun Spot.

    Which, by the way, Fun Spot America has a great chocolate shop that has better apples than Disney.

    They are going to be real busy testing. I don't think they've finished the track yet. Seems rushed, but if they can do it great. I was thinking the opening would have been a week later.

    I was at the park yesterday to hopefully see it testing before heading over to SeaWorld. Unfortunately they were doing some tweaking to the track & structure so I was only able to get some pictures of the ride and the park in general. It was the first time I had been here and will be back sometime later this summer to actually ride the rides. I already have my all day pass purchased when they did the $19 birthday deal earlier this month. I can't wait!

    Here are some pics of Mine Blower I took. The trains weren't very visible from where I could view.

    On a side note, I can't wait to come back and ride Head Rush 360 as well. I love Frisbee rides and have never been on one that went upside down.

    How does this thing do an inversion without a third wheel set? Is it only held in place by centrifugal force? On another note, watch the wheels float in this video:

    I am going to assume the third set is not visible. in this picture you can see the larger wheel on top and appears to be a smaller underneath that is not the side wheel.
