Rollercoasters by Vekoma by the Netherlands Easter Egg - Rollercoaster Tycoon Reference

This is going to be hard to reproduce for most of you, but I am a rollercoaster operator for the small coaster Vapor Trail (a steel coaster at Sesame Place) and discovered this during a ride breakdown. We lost air pressure mid-ride and the dataliner display (which displays system faults) registered the error. After attempting an emergency restart I began flipping other switches to flood the gates, etc., in an attempt to bring back air pressure enough for the ride to restart (air pressure isn't required to operate the lift hill, but it is required to operate trim brakes and so for safety's sake if the air pressure is lost the ride stops.) The screen finally flashed

FAULT 00A : NOT
CHRIS SAWYER

A reference to the creator of the incredibly popular Rollercoaster Tycoon game.
