Kemah Boardwalk and Bullet Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

If you are interested in following the constrution of this ride, I'm making weekly photo updates at my site:

http://www.coasterphotos.com/maingallery/v/Kemah/2006/

 

Once it stays light out later I may make a mid-week update as well. For right now, I try to update on either Sat or Sun each week. Just added new photos today.

Hey Jason,

 

You know I don't mind people linking to their own sites on here....but uploading a couple of pics as a teaser might be a nice gesture!

A close up of one of the paths the ride will take through the structure.

The first section of the ride to be built is coming along nicely. There are currently 3 areas where track will pass through this section.

I have to agree it is strange to see a GG like this. Their past two coasters have been so unique, that it is strange to see a traditional looking coaster like this. This looks like a coaster I'd expect from GCI but not GG

This coaster looks great so far. I agree, wood-structured woodies are so much more aesthetically pleasing than steel-structured ones. Besides, steel-structured woodies tend to become unbearably rough unless taken care of properly

Oh yes the Gravity Group goodness

 

This ride (as with all GG's) I am quite sure will be amazing!

 

By taking a look at Bullet's older brothers (Voyage and Hades) this ride is going to be amazing!

 

I will be following the construction for this ride very closely.

 

Thanks for the great photo's coasterphoto they are appreciated.

Boardwalk Bullet, eh? Sounds like a badass coaster name to make up for the renaming of Hellevator...

 

And on that sign, did anybody mistake that bullet for the Mario villain "Bullet Bill"?

I havent been this excited about a coaster here in texas eva. when the titan opened at SFOT, i wasnt that excited because i had already ridden the goliath. i live 40 minutes from KEMAH and i think that I will be adding a lot of miles on my car this summer. I just hope that it runs daily and not over $5.00 per ride. If it is i will be dippping into my 401K. I was a big fan of height, but these woodies nowadays have so many elements, banked turns and airtime that height isnt as important to me.

Maybe one day we'll see the sun here in the Houston area again...but for now here are some more cloudy Boardwalk Bullet photos.

A different angle showing all the land clearing that has taken place (this used to be a parking lot and a small grassy area)

Nice overview of the construction site.

This really makes me want to get my job back as a crane operator!

kemah_01_22_07_04.jpg.5dfb4928a2b6939544ce25a0e1f7141a.jpg

This should certainly be on your "must do" 2007 coaster list!

Here is what a roller coaster construction would look like.....if you were in prison! :D

Oooh...can you say Head Chopper?

kemah_01_22_07_03.jpg.f5373594aa9e83270a72720cf19e69e4.jpg

They've got quite a few people putting this one together.

This is photographic proof that yes....yes they are building a wooden roller coaster!

^ If i pay by credit card for that pile of dirt, will they through in some Screws as well? What if i pay withing the next 10 minutes, can i get it for $19.95?

 

 

Anyway, its looking a little better then i previously assumed. But whereabouts is the Boardwalk in this place? Looks like Rural Texas from the photos I've seen!

^You need to work on customizing your Gallery2.

 

This may have been mentioned already but are they beefing up the supports because of hurricanes? It just looks really dense.

Yeah...someday...don't have the time for my site like I did a few years back.

 

I haven't heard anything official about extra support because of the hurricane threat but I'm sure it'll be asked this weekend at the ACE Winterfest event in Galveston. If it isn't asked, I'll make sure to ask it myself! We should be having guests from Kemah come talk about the new ride.

That Gallery software can be a real pain once you start messing it with but the customization options are practically limitless.

 

Have any animations come out for this one?
