Head on over to the park's Facebook page to see the video!

The left side coming out of the Stengel dive/overbank/whatever is going to be AMAZING. Similar to if you're sitting on the left side when X2 exits its turnaround - the track banks and because you have a farther distance to fall before you're level it feels like it's dropping out underneath you!

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

That thing FLIES over the top of the lift! Looking great, can't wait to hear some reviews from opening day!

I know more about donkeys than women!

So the ride starts off slow and then speeds up (talking about the cable lift). Is that because of the winged seats?

P.S. Anyone else notice the front of the train is missing something?

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

^^The computer waits until the entire train is on the lift and then the lift speeds up.

Makes sense. I wouldn't want to be in the back row going 15 mph out of the station and up the steep lift incline curve...that would be some uncomfortable whiplash most likely.

The train slows down much more than I expected by the end. I'm sure it'll still be awesome but I figured it would have more umph going around the final bits.

I think this video is of some of the initial runs of train 2. That's why it's going slower than in previous videos. And that's why the front-nose isn't on the train.
