cant see it blocked, just it provide any new functionality or what? is it easier to use?

For Fury, it is block sectioned, if that's what you're asking?Starts with the station drive (each one a different block and can hold one car) - Drive 1/2/3 being directly after break run, Drive 4 is Transfer track, Drive 5 is station entrance, Drive 6/7/8 move cars along in station from bars release to bars lock, Drive 9 being Dispatch Drive, stopping and starting according to controls. Drive 10 being outside of the station and going to lift, then Lift 1/Drive 11.Block Section 1 between about 9/10ths of way up the lift, and Brake 1 (over Sea Dragons), Block Section 2 between Brake 1 and Brake 2 (over Canopy Capers), Block Section 3 being between Brake 2 and Brake 3 (Over Griffins Galleon), Block Section 3 being between Brake 3 and lower half of Lift 2, Block Section 4 being between top half of Lift 2 and Brake 4 (Over Toadies' Crazy Cars), and Block Section 5 between Brake 4 and Final Trim Run.Which does mean Fury can have two cars on a lift at the same time, if timed correctly!

Well... If a car stops on drive 9 (The dispatch drives) the cars behind it stack up behind it. You send out the car on 9 but the other cars won't start moving again automatically, the operator presses the two buttons along with the platformer and woolah, the cars in the station will move again.

It's weird that in this country you have to do like five hours training to operate a Carousel, whilst in Germany you don't even have to read a manual and they let you opertae thier coasters.

Someone we know has an amazing story of how they were plonked onto operating corkscrew in a yorkshire park with no training. Epic!I doubt its much to do with H&S regulations, its more to show the competance of the park and their operators should something go wrong. There's very little training on some rides at a theme park I know as well.

^Rush My real babyPosted ImageStealing Neilfever's pictures, but, quick guide to Rush...Ok, you can ignore the big panel with lots of blue buttons to the left of the picture, that's just audio (announcements etc), you just press the button for the announcement you want.So. You sit in the console, people are off the ride, and there are guests waiting to board. You first press the green button just above the 'e' in fever to open the gates, people board, your hosts close the restraints (using the restrain lock buttons on the swings), then your hosts go to the exit gate/batching area. Then press the red button just to the left of the green one to close the gates, flick the harness release switch (the middle switch in the cluster of 3 at the far right of the panel), and the lock exit gate switch (hiding neatly above the audio box). The screen in the middle of the panel provides air pressure information, provided the pressure is right, the ride area is clear and the attendants are giving the thumbs up/pressing the button by the exit gate, you press both big green buttons simultaneously to begin the ride cycle (bottom of the panel, at either side). Rush does it's thing, when it stops, exit gate is released, and when the air pressure is correct, you flick the harness release, and hey presto, your back to where you started.
