Well.

Here's the new mini-website for Rockit.

http://www.universaltravelagents.com/rockit/

And according to the Gradventure's 09' page it should be open by May 8th.

^ Nice find. It looks like there will be a great variety and there will be something for everyone to listen to. Oh and a possible May 8th or earlier opening doesn't sound too bad at all. Looking forward to it.

I just found out about this today. It definitely seems like it'll be a neat, innovative ride.

Just noticed some minor Rockit concept art of the lifthill and non-inverted loop (right behind Krustyland) on the Grad Bash main page too. So maybe it'll be open a bit before the May 8th Gradventure.

You can see it a whooole lot better in this wallpaper.

Thanks guys!
I know everyone appreciates it :]
There's one curve on the return run that looks MIGHTY fierce. Does anybody else think this thing is going to whip you around a bit?

Is there any track assembled? All I see is dirt, so far.
I'm questioning the date when the ride will be finished. :roll:

No Track pictures?
I was involved molding trackpieces for this ride, this is why I cant wait to see the ready painted track pieces at the building site!
