    Some of that white stuff, especially the piles in the earlier shots, could be ammonium nitrate. Mixed properly it is a pretty powerful explosive and is often used in conjunction with dynamite to make a bigger explosion.

    I love "discovery" rides like that. And you got way further into there than I would have! Scary movie, indeed. Sweet bike, too! Nice to see the older rides being used as they should.

    Cool pics. The building was probably used as a core splitting shed. The round sticks of rocks laid out in boxes are samples from a core drilling operation.
