Bouddi National Park

The Bouddi National Park is a protected national park, located in the Central Coast region of New South Wales, in eastern Australia. The 1,532-hectare national park is situated 46 kilometres northeast of Sydney. A section of the national park extends into the Tasman Sea, creating protected land and marine habitats; the park contains one of the last mature temperate rainforests on Fletchers Glen. The Bouddi National Park was known as the Bouddi Natural Park, it received its name at the second meeting of the park trust held on 5 July 1936. Other names considered were Cape Three Points Reserve and Gerrinbombi Park; the reason for the choice was that Bouddi is the authenticated aboriginal name of the most conspicuous feature of the district and appears on maps as early as 1828. Bouddi is an indigenous word for the heart; the trust had been founded the year earlier to manage the reserve and had representation from the NSW Federation of Bushwalking Clubs and Erina Shire Council. In 1967 the park, by totalling about 1,310 acres, was dedicated as a national park under the newly passed legislation and was renamed Bouddi State Park.

Its management became the responsibility of the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service, soon afterwards the trust was reconstituted as an advisory committee. On 1 January 1974, the National Parks and Wildlife Act dispensed with the category of state parks and Bouddi was renamed Bouddi National Park.

The story "Don Jones" was original to this collection; the other stories appeared in the magazines Other Worlds and Fantasy and Science Fiction.

"The Sheriff of Canyon Gulch" "Don Jones" "In Hoka Signo Vinces" "The Adventure of the Misplaced Hound" "Yo Ho Hoka!" "The Tiddlywink Warriors" Floyd C. Gale wrote that the stories in Earthman's Burden were "reasonably amusing. Under one cover and in company with minor works, the cumulative effect is less rewarding... Hoka, like pickles, is a tasty appetizer in moderation, but leaves a characteristic aftertaste if overindulged"; the White Man's Burden Boucher, Anthony, "Recommended Reading", The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Mercury Publications, 14: 95 Chalker, Jack L..

Thunder Run (Kentucky Kingdom)

Thunder Run is a wooden roller coaster at the Kentucky Kingdom amusement park in Louisville, Kentucky. The ride operated from August 1990 through to October 2009, when then-operators Six Flags abandoned the park. After remaining closed since 2009, Thunder Run reopened in May 2014 when Kentucky Kingdom reopened under new operators; the ride was manufactured by Dinn Corporation and designed by Curtis D. Summers and John Fetterman. With 2,850 feet of track, Thunder Run stands 90 feet tall and features a top speed of 53 miles per hour. Kentucky Kingdom opened on May 23, 1987, leasing 10 acres at the Kentucky Exposition Center property; the Texas investors who operated the park filed it for bankruptcy after only one season of operation. The Ed Hart-led Themeparks LLC firm purchased the rights to operate the park in 1989, reopening the park the following year; as part of the reopening the new operators added a collection of new rides including Thunder Run, which opened in August 1990. Early in Thunder Run's operating life, one of the cars uncoupled while climbing the lift hill and the ride's lap bars were found to be unsafe.

No injuries were reported from these incidents. The original ride was retracked by Martin & Vleminckx prior to its closure in 2009. Thunder Run operated until the end of the 2009 season which ended on November 1. On February 4, 2010, amid a corporate bankruptcy, Six Flags closed the park due to the rejection of an amended lease by the Kentucky State Fair Board. On June 27, 2013, a group of investors led by Ed Hart negotiated an agreement to reopen the park with a planned investment of $50 million. Rocky Mountain Construction was hired to refurbish the coaster, resulting in replacement of the existing wooden track. On October 10, 2013, Kentucky Kingdom invited members of the media and amusement industry to ride the refurbished Thunder Run; the ride reopened to the public on May 24, 2014. After the 2016 season, Kentucky Kingdom announced that Thunder Run would receive a new train from the Philadelphia Toboggan Company for the 2017 season; this train replaced the single train, first put into service in 1990.

The 2,850-foot-long Thunder Run stands 90 feet tall. With a top speed of 53 miles per hour, the ride featured a ride duration of 2 minutes; the ride operates with a single train featuring six cars. Each car seats riders in two rows of two. Thunder Run features. Thunder Run's design was intended for Americana Amusement Park. In 1986 John Fetterman presented the design to park manager Ron Berni. Berni contacted Dennis Starkey of Curtis D. Summers's engineering firm; the coaster was never built for Americana and Berni transferred to Kentucky Kingdom in 1989. The design was used as the foundation for the International Coasters' roller coaster located at Carowinds and Kings Dominion named Hurler. Thunder Run features a double back layout, it begins with a left turn out of the station. This leads to the 90-foot-tall chain lift hill. Once at the top, riders go down a small dip and along a 180 degree turn to the left; the first drop of 74 feet leads into a near-ground level 70-degree banked turn to the left.

A series of small camelback hills are followed by a turnaround. The train proceeds back towards the station with another hill; this process repeats a second time leading back into station. In 1993 and 1994, Thunder Run was cited by Amusement Business as the "Most Terrifying Roller Coaster" on a top 10 list. Inside Track magazine ranked Thunder Run as the "fourth best of its kind in the nation." In 2007, the Lexington Herald-Leader described the ride as having "a few nice drops and that jerky, clicking wooden coaster feel that some people love, but it never gets too wild." Tim O'Brien of Amusement Business, rode the inaugural run of the ride in 1990, as well as the first cycle of the refurbished ride in 2013. O'Brien describes the updated ride as "a better ride today than it was back then," commending the ride's ability to give a classic wooden roller coaster feel, yet run smoothly, he stated Thunder Run "is one of the top wooden roller coasters in the world."In Amusement Today's annual Golden Ticket Awards, Thunder Run has appeared four times between 2001 and 2004.

It debuted at position 34 in 2001 before dropping to 49 in 2004. Mitch Hawker's Wooden Coaster Poll was an annual survey of roller coasters from around the world. In that poll, Thunder Run entered at position 30 in 1994, maintaining an average of 54 for the 17 years that followed; the ride's ranking in subsequent polls is shown in the table below.
