I *really* like the name, and the layout (at least what's shown) for Texas Stingray.

it's been many, many years since I've been to SWSA (probably more than 20 at this point). . this most certainly makes me want to visit, and possibly buy a season pass to the park.

cannot WAIT for this, it's got me very excited - possibly even more so than the new 2020 ride at SFFT!

Looks great. Another on my evergrowing list of reasons to visit Texas.

Looks fantastic! It's nice to see another brand new GCI go up. Seems like everyone is after RMC, but this more exciting to me personally. Looks like I will finally need to get to this part of Texas to visit (and SFFT of course)!

Yay for new wood coasters!

When we were there this summer, we noticed a HUGE area under construction across from the new Turtle Reef. This ride is going to be massive.

Looks great. Definitely need to plan a Texas trip.

I love donkeys more than me.

Wow. Did not think I would see the day where GCI does a conventional first drop. Looks great
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

They also did a straight drop on Invadr, but I agree it's very rare for them.

This looks like a fantastic addition for SWSA, and while I don't have any plans for a Texas trip in the next year or so, I will definitely be going to SFSA for the first time, whenever I make it down there again!

This looks awesome! I really dig the recent creations by GCI, like Mystic Timbers, which is an incredibly smooth woodie that still has some out-of-control feeling and a fun layout with airtime and laterals all over the place. This looks to be right in that category and adds to SWSA's already unique line-up.

From my experience, all the GCIs I've ridden start smooth. But they can get quite bumpy over time if the maintenance isn't kept up. See Prowler. But I agree their recent woodies have been paced very well.
