Anyone else think that the name of the ride will be "Speed" based on that URL?

 

--Robb

 

I would think it refers to the speed needed to run the videos but instead of just using the terms "high" and "low" by themselves, they use speed with it.

Who cares what the name is... That looks like a blast... Man I wish I could go...

 

Six Flags needs to put some of these babies in the smaller parks (cough Elitches). They would be a great custom ride and would be small enough to fit but with decent capacities.

I mean it is a custom layout, i havent looked at the video though, but isnt this alot like the Typhoon or the other 95 degree drop at Bon Bon Land? Is it the same type of coaster? or is it a whole differnt type of ride?

It is similar to Typhoon in Bobbejaanland, but the elements are in different places on the track. Looks more of an out and back style coaster compared to Typhoon which is more a wild mouse sized coaster..

A bit like the difference of the track layouts of Spinball Whizzer Alton Towers and Dragons fury Thorpe park same type of coaster different style layouts.

I'm glad they've finally made their mind up about this, as it gives me a little more reason to finally make the 5hr drive down there next year. Shame the layout isn't a bit more interesting though, but can't complain I guess, at least they're getting one.

I think megaphobia Sucks

 

What The, You think megafobia sucks, it is one of the worlds best woodies, it has great airtime so I think megafobia is way better than the new eurofighter.

 

Everyone has their own opinions. Atleast he used the words "I think" which alot of people dont. And I think you should be happy as there will be one person less queueing for Megaphobia

This looks like a good ride. The drop looks great, and the layout is original. This might just be me, but the drop seems like the only reason I would want to ride. It has some nice hills and other elements, but these just do not call out to me.

Links should work again!

 

They changed all of the pages from "Speed" to "New" as NemesisStorm pointed out! I do wonder if the ride is named Speed, or if now they're looking to change it!

I'm glad to see that Oakwood are getting a new coaster and will look forward to riding it next year. It does look interesting. However I can't help thinking that I'll still be spending most of my time there on their world class woodie
