^NTAG has a totally different track system, the track system used on Outlaw Run has only been used on 'traditional' woodies. That being said, I still believe it will run just fine.

Okay, now I'm officially confused as hell concerning this project, and pretty much everything Rocky Mountain offers. I'll just sit back and hope things turn out well for Outlaw Run, because we're planning on making our way out there next year. It looks really cool.

I really think that's a really bad example to compare this with, especially considering Maverick's roll was directly after a drop whereas the rolls on this coaster are towards the end of the ride. By the time the train gets to the rolls, it will most likely lose enough speed to make the traverse the rolls comfortably. Not to mention Maverick's roll was flat and Outlaw Run's are elevated at a pretty decent upward angle, which will definitely help with slowing the train down throughout the roll as well. I honestly don't think they'll have issues with it, the two situations are completely different in this case.

^Agreed. That is exactly what I was thinking as well. It will hit the rolls at a much slower pace so it should be fine.

I don't remember there being much more than grass and a parking lot.


Yep. That is grass and a parking lot.

On Mamba you get a good view of downtown KC, but on Patriot it's meh. The parking lot is right in front of you - pretty breathtaking.

This coaster looks amazing! I never got on Son Of beast so it's nice to see a new woodie with an inversion. Definitely want to try & ride it next year!

I'm surprised no one's posted these yet.

I don't have the official source, but I found them on Nolimits-Exchange.
