All, I am happy to report even more changes and upgrades for this year:
The skulls on the Skull Banister in the first room have been repainted. Let me say that the blue color that the giant skull was painted actually appears white underblacklight, not blue. So, the skulls on the skull banister were painted with the same paint, making them white. The eyes are now orange. And the cloth that is above the skull banister in the first room has also been painted so it stands out.
The Wave Room now goes around the ENTIRE room, even the doors. That's right, they extended the waves. Cool, huh?
The Popup Coffin stunt from Phantasmagoria has been repainted and touched up! THey are now working on getting it to work.
A motor will be ordered shortly for the buzzard upstairs.
The witch will be moved to immediately following the Upside-down room. The Reacher will be put in its place.
The cabinet that holds the Headbanger has been turned into a jail.
A red light has been placed on the gallows stunt at the downhill, and based on what I was told it only comes on when he is kicking. So, riders won't even see it until he moves. Pretty cool idea!
More to come.

WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SPEARHEADING ALL OF THESE CHANGES? Job well done, Brandon, and all the others who have helped paint everything and get things looking great. The ride is going to be the best it ever has, and really scare riders! People who have overlooked the ride or dismissed it as "cheap" and "never-changing" will be in for a rude awakening this summer. I really like the Wave Room idea. The existing waves definitely needed a touchup (because they had been "touched up" over the years with not exactly the same paint color). Maybe the Witch will be a showcase stunt in its new spot? Excellent Gallows idea, and the red light will make him look much more creepy. I'm skeptical about the Reacher, though. With his arms extending out so far, won't riders be able to easily grab at him? And will the Reacher and the Pop-Up Coffin be triggered at the same time? Regardless, there will be lots of life (or death) added to the bland areas where nothing used to scare riders. What a great year!

I'm very excited about the changes and new additions. I just hope that Trimpers is taking extra measures this year to keep the spring breakers from destroying all of their work and expense. I won't be down until the last week of July. Looking forward to seeing the changes.
Brandon: The forum has so many new visitors, but so few new posts! Come on people! Let's get the conversation started. Summer is almost here!

HHMacabre: Hi everyone! Did I hear word of new additions in the ride? How is the Mineshaft?

Brandon: Yes, there are supposed to be two new effects installed this year. I don't have any insight yet but will share the information once I receive it. I don't think anything has been done with the Shaft.

Brandon: There have also been three additional mini shooting galleries installed around the park. Pics and information to come a later date at ochh.net.
