I am entering the enterance to test track and I see 2 camera looking devices pointing at a mirror what are they for? Also more of an engineering ?. how does the outside supports keep the track from falling over. It looks like the most vertical support is leaning out which when the cars go over the track would be pulling on it instead of it supporting the forces by pushing back. The other 2 supports push on the inside of the track and would also be pulled against. I have noticed that the track moves some when the cars come fling across.

The cameras I would assume are for ride breakdowns to see that passengers are OK or still in their vehicles during a ride stoppage. No comment on the other question.

I don't think thats what they are for. they are both pointing approx the same point, and one has a wind guaging device like you see for measuring wind speed. The other one has a radar antenna looking device on it.

As a former Track Technician, I'll share with you their Very Important Purpose:


The cameras mentioned, however, ARE there... on top of the building.
