Just to clarify, while it will only rise 30 feet above ground, the article seems to say it'll have a 54 foot drop into a trench.

54 feet still isn't all that high, but it's better than 30 feet.

^^^Nothing they can install would beat Steel Eel. Can't wait to ride that again this summer. A lot of airtime was had on that ride. :airtime:

Not to mention the trench will give a heightened sense of speed.

If it's comparable to Blue Fire it will be a great coaster. At least the best restraint system in the world.

I totally understand if some of you will be dissapointed cause it won*t have any inversions or because of the little height...whatever.

BUT it will be a Mack Laucher...awesome Quality, awesome Restraints, incredibly smooth...which could support the feeling to *fly* over the course. Ideed some people said after riding Blue Fire that it feels alot like flying...just because of the Silence and Smoothness of the ride.

So if that one will be themed well this could still be a great Coaster !

George *Yes...I*m a total Blue Fire fanboy...and probably not objective at all... ;) T.

This is GOOD news for the park. I just hope they don't scrimp on the theming like they did for Atlantis.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I, too, would like to rush to the defense of a ride that no one is attacking.

Stop complaining! Oh wait, no one is.

This sounds a bit like a mini-Cheetah Hunt and I'm totally cool with that.
