SDC tells me "This pic is for RCT3Bross, who thought the other version was taken too late!" (Thanks SDC!) ;)

Silver Dollar City General Manager Brad Thomas says "Come March 15th, you're gonna be screaming through Outlaw Run like a little girl!" (Ok, that might not be an exact quote...)

"You can tell the test dummies liked it when they sit perfectly, expressionless still...and mutter under their breaths." (Turn up the audio, you can actually hear them!)

Wow. Yesterday I thought "I think I'm more excited by those new photos than I should be," but now, I feel completely justified. Each has managed to be better than the last, and they started at level Amazing. The one with the train coming out of the inversion might be one of the most incredible coaster pics I've ever seen.

It has been so much fun with social media and websites keeping tabs on the construction of new rides and attractions, I remember following the construction of Millennium Force and SFMM's Goliath in 1999-2000, and updates were not as frequent, and now parks supply us with a lot of updates some daily/weekly. Amazing PR work by Silver Dollar City!

It's about time testing started. Looks beautifully brutal and I can't wait for a chance to ride this beast.

Why does the main drop remind me so much of X2s? Hopefully the drop has loads of airtime in the back half of the train.

 

um, try the ENTIRE train having loads of airtime on that first drop. Every 80 degree drop or more coaster I've been on is a butt lifter no matter what seat you sit in. Granted, it will be more intense in the back half. But I expect airtime will be had in every seat all over it's entire illegal journey (giggle).
