I cannot wait to see a wooden coaster diving low to the ground through this next year!

I would expect it to be low to the ground based on the stats and 60ft above grade restriction (see pdf).

Except that GCI has never built anything as forceful or intense as Raven so I'd say it's going to be more like a ride that *wants* to be the next Raven! ;)

Maybe I'll be proven wrong and I'm sure this will do great for the park, but I was just hoping for something a bit more exciting than a family GCI woodie, that's all. While I get their rides are VERY popular and are always crowd pleasers at parks, I'm just not a fan of their style of ride.

Hope it will at least have a 42" height restriction so that the target audience will be able to ride! :P

The Viking theme fits perfectly. Did Busch Gardens Tampa ever do anything with the Gwazi trains? Could they be moving here for this new coaster with some new paint?
