Holy crap you nerds are a tough crowd.  It looks like a coaster that will make me hoot and holler the entire time I'm on it while simultaneously trying to throw my fat ass as far from the train as pos

I actually agree with many of you talking about how the RMC's are all very similar.  And that's fine. There's nothing wrong with building a ton of very similar kick ass rides when most people who ride

It means that you can look forward to a fun-filled day riding Kumba, Montu, Cheetah Hunt and Sheikra and while you're in line for one of those you might be able to watch an Iron Gwazi POV on your phon

That POV is insane. But did you notice they sped up the lift up? You can tell cuz the cars are driving way fast. Hopefully they'll get the right rising speed going soon. Don't want it to take 20 min to get to the top like Mäch tower!

I wonder how long it'll actually take to ascend the tower. The POV was sped up on the way to the top (look at the cars/coasters), but it looked to be normal speed on the drop.

 

Crazy ride.

 

 

Also, that article was written by high school students, so I don't think it's unreasonable to cut them a bit of slack:

Oh yes...SO riding this in a few weeks!!! The only part that concerns me is the landing when the seats rotate back to sitting position. That might be a bit jarring.

 

It's the new "ker-CHUNK". Haven't you heard?

To me, it looks like it would be fun! Intamin rides are generally very smooth, with no lurching. Your judgement is as good as mine at this point, so we will have to wait and see.

I was at the park today. I could not see what was going on behind the wall. They were taking the latch or catch car not sure what you would call it, up and down really slow like 20 minutes or longer to go from top to bottom. As I was leaving the park the car was half way up the tower with with the seats facing down. Kinda looks like they were making everything was not rubbing

That would be kind of funny, in a way.

But I'm sure it won't feel like that.

To me, it looks like the momentum of the free fall is converted into positive G-forces. It should feel the same as 'landing' on any other drop ride.

 

Judging by the design of the gondola, you're probably the most correct.

 

It seems like the cars will pivot outward in a manner not much different than an invert pulling out from a vertical loop, rather than the cars on something like a 4D.

Headed over to Busch yesterday afternoon. Took a few pics with my iPhone. Enjoy!

They were working on a cool Falcon topiary.

Ride sign looks nice.

New stands look quite nice. Also what looks to be a fountain in the middle of the picture.

Stopped by the new Twisted Tails Pretzels in Pantopia. I just had to get a bacon pretzel with beer infused cheese. It was pretty darn good!

The new show "Burn the Floor: Untapped" is now running at the Desert Grill.

This flamenco inspired dance show is a lot of fun!

I took a ride on the skyride, and was surprised when I got over Rhino Rally.

They were driving the trucks through the course, and running through load/unload procedures.

Looks like they're getting ready to open for the summer. That's all for now, thanks for reading!

Thanks for the report, that pretzel looks really good! As for Falcon's Fury POV, holy crap! That's going to be an amazing drop!
