Tornado and Dragon receive new storage bins

When The Monster opened last year, it had strict rules about what can be taken with you on the ride:

NOTHING

Cameras, hats, and pretty much anything not attached to you could not be brought on the ride. With a ride that goes 65 miles per hour and does many inversions, something could easily get tossed out of the ride vehicle. And, with the Sky Ride passing through the coaster, there would be people through the track while the ride is in operation.

Shortly after opening on Juny 4, 2017, the park installed nice storage bins for riders to place their stuff:

The Monster storage bins.

For 2017, similar bins have now been installed at The Dragon and The Tornado. Here’s the Dragon’s:

The Dragon’s new storage bins for 2017.

It’s nice to see rides that have been in the park for decades (Tornado opened in 1978!) get some modern conveniences like this — especially with 40 years of riders being just fine with leaving things on the floor.

The Outlaw remains bin-less for now, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it joins the bin club in the future.
