    E Lift. The Yan triple before Excellerator. The scene was actually filmed on the deck of Solitude Station on a chair that was a spare from under the summer deck.

    From what I know the chairs were reused on S lift, before being replaced by CTEC chairs. The rest of the lift I believe was scrapped but I could be wrong.

      E’s carriers did go to S. The gearbox and drive bullwheel went to R, as did the tower assemblies and lifting gantries (R originally had none).

    Peter- you show that C-lift was removed. It wasn’t, I still maintain it. Its other name is Gem.

    Peter, are you heading to Colorado soon to take pictures of the new American Eagle and Flyer?

      I plan to get to Copper within the next month or so. I already got the rest of the new lifts in Colorado but the Flyer was not open yet at that time. I will get Taos as well when I go to Copper.

    Rode the new chairs today. American Flyer is quite the thrill ride. Durring stops (which it does quite often) it rolls backwards quite a ways. In certain spots it also can drop and bounce probably 30 feet or so. It honestly felt very unsafe.
