Track Description
This is NOT my own track! The ride was built by RADZAD and was in the Palisades Park V2 on the No Limits Exchange page. The original version was an Arrow Suspended Coaster. I turned it into a Vekoma Suspended Coaster and did a complete overhaul on/of the ride. I added scenery around the ride and made the whole ride better overall. EVERYTHING about my version of the coaster is completely different than the old version. PLEASE download, enjoy, and don't forget to rate.

Block System
Forest Run has a semi-complex computerized Block System to avoid the trains from coming too close or in complete contact with each other. The block system also helps prevent a Set-Up. A Set-Up is what occurs when one train attempts to enter a block already occupied by another train. The location of each train is closely monitored by a combination proximity sensors/switches, mechanical switches, photoelectric sensors, timers, and by a program running on a programmable logic controller that all when sensing the metal of the brake fin, send the location to the main computer, which is displayed on the main dispatch control panel. The ride has eight different block brakes, Brake 1, Brake 2, Brake 3, Unload Station, Load Station, Lift 1, Brake 5, and Lift 2. The ride has five different blocks not including the two stations. A Block is from the end of the Load Station to the top of Lift 1. B Block is from the top of Lift 1 to the end of Brake 5. C Block is from the end of Brake 5 to the top of Lift 2. D Block is from the top of Lift 2 to the end of Brake 1. And E Block is from the end of Brake 1 to the end of the Load Station. The main dispatch control panel allows the operator to send one train out of the Load Station after the second train has cleared Lift 1, thus entering the B Block. There are eight places where the train can stop: Brake 1, Brake 2, Brake 3, Unload Station, Load Station, Lift 1, Brake 5, and Lift 2. There are also two sets of magnetic trim brakes on the course of the ride that reduce/maintain the speed of the train. The trains cannot be stopped on the trim brakes.

Brake 1: Located at the end of the ride, and furthest from the station(s) area, this is the first brake the train enters in the final brake run. This brake will slow, then stop the train for two seconds for safety reasons before its released. The train will only stop here for more than two seconds if a RIDE STOP and/or E-STOP was pressed, and/or if the block brake in front of it is occupied.

Brake 2: Located after Brake 1, this is the second brake the train enters in the final brake run. This brake will only slow the train down, and not stop it unless, a RIDE STOP and/or E-STOP was pressed, or if the block brake in front of it is occupied.

Brake 3: Located after Brake 2, and closest to the station(s) area, this is the third, and final brake the train enters in the final brake run. This brake will only slow the train down, and not stop it unless, a RIDE STOP and/or E-STOP was pressed, or if the Unload Station is occupied. This brake is also located before the Storage Switch area.

Unload Station: Located after Brake 3, and the Storage Switch area, this is the area where passengers disembark the train. Passengers will not board the train in this station area. During two and/or one train operation, this station will not be in use. Passengers will disembark in the Load Station and will only stop in this area if a RIDE STOP and/or E-STOP was pressed, or if the Load Station is occupied.

Load Station: Located after the Unload Station, this is the area where passengers board the train. During two and/or one train operation, this station will also be used as the Unload Station where passengers disembark the train, as the Unload Station will not be in use.

Lift 1: Located after the Load Station, this is the first area where the train ascends via Chain Lift System. The train will not stop here unless a LIFT STOP, RIDE STOP and/or E-STOP is pressed. The train on Lift 1 will also stop here if the train in front of it hasn't cleared Brake 5. Once Brake 5 has cleared, the train on Lift 1 will then be released. If the train in the Load Station is dispatched too early, and the train ahead of it hasn't cleared Brake 5, the Chain Lift System will automatically switch to 'Slow Lift Mode' in order to keep the two trains far apart from one another. Once Brake 5 is clear, the Chain Lift System will automatically go into 'Fast Lift Mode'. If Brake 5 is still occupied, even after Lift 1 has been in 'Slow Lift Mode', the train on Lift 1 will stop until Brake 5 has cleared and then it will be released. If Brake 5 is clear as a train dispatches from the Load Station, the Chain Lift System will be in 'Fast Lift Mode' the entire ascent up Lift 1.

Brake 4: Located between Lift 1, and Brake 5, this brake only slows the train down, and will not stop the train, regardless if a RIDE STOP and/or E-STOP is pressed. A proxy sensor located on the bottom of the first drop, directly after Lift 1 will determine whether or not this brake gets activated or not should the train be traveling faster than it should.

Brake 5: Located directly before Lift 2, this brake will only slow the train down, and not stop it unless, a RIDE STOP and/or E-STOP was pressed, and/or if Lift 2 is occupied.

Lift 2: Located after Brake 5, this is the second area where the train ascends via Chain Lift System. The train will not stop here unless a LIFT STOP, RIDE STOP and/or E-STOP is pressed. The train on Lift 2 will also stop here if the train in front of it hasn't cleared Brake 1. Once Brake 1 has cleared, the train on Lift 1 will then be released. If Brake 1 isn't clear, and a train starts ascending Lift 2, the Chain Lift System will automatically switch to 'Slow Lift Mode' in order to keep the two trains far apart from one another. Once Brake 1 is clear, the Chain Lift System will automatically go into 'Fast Lift Mode'. If Brake 1 is still occupied, even after Lift 2 has been in 'Slow Lift Mode', the train on Lift 2 will stop until Brake 1 has cleared and then it will be released. If Brake 1 is clear as a train starts ascending Lift 2, the Chain Lift System will be in 'Fast Lift Mode' the entire ascent up Lift 2.

Brake 6: Located on the second drop, this brake only slows the train down, and will not stop the train, regardless if a RIDE STOP and/or E-STOP is pressed. A proxy sensor located before the drop, directly after Lift 2 will determine whether or not this brake gets activated or not should the train be traveling faster than it should.

A Block: End of the Load Station, to the top of Lift 1
B Block: Top of Lift 1, to the end of Brake 5
C Block: End of Brake 5, to the top of Lift 2
D Block: Top of Lift 2, to the end of Brake 1
E Block: End of Brake 1, to the end of the Load Station
