When RMC said that this new technology will allow for maneuvers never seen before on wooden coasters I just thought they were talking about a few overbanks maybe an inversion or two but Outlaw Run is balls out crazy, never mind the fact it is a wood coaster.

Boy oh boy this thing loooks sooo sweet. I like that its not out in the open and the elements can shock you. Im a big fan of terain coasters that is the ONLY reason why I place Voyage ahead of El Toro is because I cant see whats happening ahead. i dont like standing in line and seeing the whole coaster and what its doing even if I have ridden it hundreds of times. Now my biggest question is, what is the benefit of a hybrid coaster like this? Since it has the total smoothness of a steel coaster, why not just make the whole thing steel?

Hole crap this looks amazing! But the steel bar on the right track looks like it will hit the wheels, someone quickly call the engineers!!!

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

It is # 7 on the layout here: Outlaw Run Layout,after the funky looking wave turn in the photo above. This is the speed bump before the turn to the right that leads into the double barrel roll.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Is it just me or does that speed hill look like it will have insane airtime?

This is one of the rides I am most excited to ride. Can't wait to see how good those elements are with a woodie. And even if it ends up being terrible, I'd still be at Silver Dollar City with cinnamon bread!!!!

No, you're not alone...but not only that airtime hill. I think the airtime hill in the double up on Outlaw Run will be somewhat similar the airtime hill before the break run on NTAG (which by RMC's terms could also be a double up) - in other words, it will be INTENSE!!

Wow, this ride continues to look more and more incredible. That picture looks like what I wish half of Beast was like.
