I just got back from Waldameer today, and there are many new goodies!
* Quit playing stupid sound effect compilation in lobby - the intercom and the heartbeat are once again the only things you hear now! * Rotating Barrel has creaking sound effect - I prefer the old organ sound, but this is nice. * (Besides Barrel) NO interior noises - the constant moaning sound from last year is GONE! * The woman in the Bar Scene TURNS AROUND for the first time in 12 years! - she's been staring straight ahead, stationary, for SO LONG!
* Cleaned dust in Tornado Room's disco ball cage - the reflecting lights are no longer covered up by 30 layers of dust! * Repainted ALL the black walls - for years, the paint has worn off, revealing the wood. * Enhanced the "Beast" display - in addition to the creature's jaw ACTUALLY MOVING, there is a treasure chest, a skeleton parrot, and a stone wall embedded with skulls. This scene is now lit up with a green light.
*The water in the Swordfish scene wasn't working today......
The bar women alone was a great thrill for me, and I feel bad I didn't bring a camera!

Thanks a lot for the updates Spooky! Great to see that effort is being put into restoring some of these things to their former glory. I haven't been since 2010 (when we met) but I hope to get back next summer at some point. I agree that the bar woman is the best update. That bar stunt is my favorite in the ride, and one of the creepiest Tracy stunts I've seen.
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.
