9/26/10 - Dominator overload & Possessed malfunction?

Postby hoany » Mon Sep 27, 2010 1:02 pm

My wife, brother in law, and I went yesterday from 3:30 to 7:00. Hit Talon with no wait then rode the CCC train. We to Hydra next for a walk on and did the back row which was somewhat smooth. Checked the Wild Mouse line but it was down the ramp so we passed. Demon Drop was not running the whole time we were there I believe. We then hit Dominator next. My brother in law especially enjoys this one so we did the green and red sides each 2 times varying the sides we sat on to get different views. I think on a couple we were the only ones riding.

We then went to Possessed which was also no wait and got 2 rides both back row. On our first ride the launch sort of stalled and we puttered through the station barely going up the initial climb at all. Then it picked up speed on our way backwards through the station. The rest of the ride was as normal except we did not get the brake lock the second time up the reverse spike. Never noticed those things happen before.

After that we went to Steel Force and got 2 walk on rides. From the station I could see a bunch of 'actors' making there way over to Back Woods. Back row both times which is always a great ride. On our way back up we decided to hit up one more attraction and left the decision to my brother in law which of course meant.....Dominator. We took another 2 rides on each side for a total of 8 Dominator rides for the night. :shock:

Didn't really see any actors roaming the park, although we left at 7:00 and it was still light out.

Question: My brother in law played both the rope ladder climbing challenge and the strong man mallet game (dont know their real names). How often does someone actually complete the rope ladder? He got 99 on the mallet game, when is 100 or more ever reached? Is there some trick to either one?

You have to hit the high striker dead center in order to win.
The Climbing Challenge can be done! I have seen a couple people do it but it isn't easy.

I'm not sure if the High Striker game is the same, but I was watching a video we made in 1994 at Dorney, and my sister's then BF got 100+ many times. 121 was his high. I only got a 97 as my high back then lol. My poor fiance (GF then) got an 89 lol.
