It would be so nice if we could have just *ONE* day on our forum without someone making an insanely stupid comment. Is that really too much to ask???

Sorry, not all coasters can be as awesome as your favorite, Road Runner Express. :roll:

I like its theming. Has Zamperla made any other coasters of this type?

Looks like they used the same type of track as Thunderbolt, just upside-down. Zamperla does seem like it's going to slowly become more prominent in the coaster market. I know many people think Thunderbolt was mediocre, but this coaster shows just how versatile they can be...I'd bet they could easily modify the basic design to accommodate more thrilling layouts.

Now if only I could figure out the thought process behind having three-across seats rather than an even number...

I've gone pantless!

Nice little ride--like a combination of an old-school Disney dark ride and a family coaster.

Nice little ride, they don't need another thrilling ride, they already has three good coasters for adults.

The best thing about TPR is the donkeys.

In PR speak, the park kept mentioning about the cats' nine lives. :lmao:

There's no single rider queue but the park crew will ask if guests are riding alone, when nearer to the loading platform. The platform can load two vehicles at the same time, and the vehicles are dispatched every 40 seconds or so. This is one of the most efficient rides in the park.

It was also a successful first day, with only a short breakdown in the evening.

^^ Probably to push the "unique" aspect of the coaster.

I'm seriously in love with the look of that tower!
No. 1 Water Park guy!
The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)
