Hmm so they're painting it during Construction, love the blue track.

Also I see the Pier will have a Ring of Fire does any one remember I think it was like IAAPA '99 (I know ages ago lol) when the manufacture displayed a model of a floorless version I wounder what ever happened to that?

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

The coaster was still being assembled at the plant. So I imagine it will be painted before being shipped.

Iron Sharks layout and POV has been posted.

A bit short, but still a layout. The first inversion looks pretty cool, like a SLC kidneybean on sit down.

Meh, maybe not the 'dark horse' of 2012 that I imagined. I know it's a pier coaster, but it needs a little more length than that to make me feel like I'm getting my money's worth. It can't be much, if at all, shorter than the standard Rage model, but for some reason that layout feels more complete than this one. I feel like I'm just getting into it when it hits the breaks. At least the elements it does have are pretty cool.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^That's my main problem with Eurofighters, too, though I'm sure it keeps them cost-effective. For one, Untamed is over so quickly that the only real fun is in the first drop.

It's definitely a short layout, but it does pack quite a bit in.

The layout is definitely unique, but as said, it seems to be missing something. Granted, they can only do so much given the location, but the ride is essentially just inversions after the drop. It just seems odd. That being said, while it is odd, I must say that it is one of the most creative designs I've seen.

As mentioned before in the Gerstlauer press release thread, it is confirmed that Iron Shark will have new 8-passenger lapbar only vehicles. :)

Also, the Pleasure Pier facebook posted a picture of the Iron Shark logo. Looks great!

^Nice! I like how it really is, well, an iron shark. I mean, I suppose it could've just been a shark shark. :p

The simple lettering actually reminds me a bit of the Morey's Great White logo, albeit not as clean and classic.

I know there are a few on here that will really appreciate that logo. ;)

I think the logo looks cool and I'm loving the lapbar only part. :)
