Hercules' Original Station Drop Hill Height

Postby DorneyDante » Sat Jun 20, 2009 7:34 pm

this is a rare pic!

This is actually not the original height of the hill as it was built....

The train had difficulties mounting the hill during initial test runs so the park lowered it 5-10 ft before media day (to keep a consistent speed)

This hill was lowered yet again when CF came along; at least 10ft, if not more.

Total loss of hill height = 20 ft give or take. Makes quite a difference. That hill used to have a nice pop of air.
