Holy crap that's awesome! They've twisted the wood for the inversions, I thought they would be completely made of steel. That's insane. I have a feeling this will be one of the best woodies.

If this was supposed to be sarcasm, that's a completely different picture...

I'm going to agree. If nothing else, this is turning out to be a sexy looking coaster. I'm impressed with this project so far. They didn't release a full POV yet, have they?

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

Yep. That is grass and a parking lot.


The point isn't the view straight ahead at the parking lot, it's the Tatsu-like way that the lift follows the contour of the land for quite some time, then just before you crest the hill, the land drops off into a valley, leaving the train a LOT higher up than expected. By the time you get around to looking down the drop, it's substantially bigger than expected.
