What are the odds that we're looking at a vertical drop? Personally I would prefer not to have one, but I'm sure RMC could pull it off.

^ I personally hope for a vertical or near vertical drop.

I'm not a fan of curved drops and not sure how I'd feel about some type of twisted drop. Just give me an old school whip my a$$ over the first hill with airtime and let the craziness begin type of drop.

With each new photo I find myself thinking:

"Yep, the crew at RMC has officially gone insane!"

:lol:

I much prefer straight drops to curved drops; My personal favorites are Outlaw-Run style ones.

^ I agree...an Outlaw Run or Wicked Cyclone-style first drop would be perfectly fine with me.

It's so amazing what RMC is able to do. To look at the twisted mess that is the lattice structure of a wooden roller coaster and figure out how to rework it while keeping the original structure, is just phenomenal.
