WOW. Thanks for sharing this!

Does anyone think that the "they" and "dueling" rumors could have something to do with those two sections of close track going in opposite directions?

I know we're in the sue happy U.S., but do you think that there is a chance that they could have trains flying past one another without the Dueling Dragons/Dragon Challenge rule in effect...and without nets?

Don't know if you caught the extra set of ledgers, but it's soon to be three sets of close track.
Top 10 coasters - 1.) Intimidator 305 2.) Maverick. 3.) Lightning Rod 4.) Fury325 5.) Phoenix 6.) Twisted Colossus 7.) Taron 8.) Millennium Force 9.) Goliath (SFGA) 10.) Expedition GeForce

I just made a donkey in No Limits!

Does the flat section scream 'LAUNCH' to anyone else? Can't make heads or tails of the layout other than it being massively long.

Not really, unless the trains would benefit from a little push-off boost (seen on Twisted Colossus) if they were to e-stop in the MCBR. There's now also a fairly gentle quarter-turn before the drop out of the MCBR, so I can't see trains launching straight into that. The layout has so far followed the path of the original Mean Streak faithfully, except it's much more action-packed and exaggerated.

Ok awesome. I couldn't tell which direction some of the track is going haha

Holy shit that looks amazing. Some very interesting and intense looking elements on that, which is par for the course for RMC, but with the added height, MCBR, and twisted insanity, there's no way this won't be the best RMC to date, and probably the new best coaster in the park! I bet the line will only be 4-6 hours opening year too!
