Just watched a POV (not posting it here; don’t ask). Those overbanks after both of the launches look like they’ll be the best parts of the ride when you spin to face downwards as you go through them!

I remember the best parts of Cobra’s Curse were the overbanks at the end as well.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Obviously there's a trip report coming so I'm not going to be a douche and flood the thread with pictures from TPR's Twitter ahead of that, but I just wanted to pop in and say that based on the picture they posted the station looks insane. Good lord. If you haven't been following TPR's Twitter today, you really should be.

That station is beyond epic! Can't wait to visit this park for the first time this year and ride this, plus Outlaw Run.

I really like the theming and lighting in the station! It’ll be so neat to just plunge right out of it!

The coolest part is that the gears on the roof actually turn too (obviously not evident in a photo, although you can see the mechanism that turns them above them).
