I never thought I'd see the day that honest-to-god adults were debating whether or not something was called a "sea serpent" or a "banana roll". What a time to be alive :lol:

The first of the banana roll structure is going up in the back of the site.

Like, I knew it was going to be massive, but it wasn't until they posted that photo of the sea serpent banana roll (mm, sushi) going up that I could see just how far it's towering over Racer, and how thoroughly this thing is going to absolutely dominate the skyline.

I really can't wait for it to open up! Here's hoping the remainder of construction is smooth sailing.
That coaster dad [316] and that coaster kiddo [175]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Intimidator 305. El Toro. Skyrush.

Kiddo's faves: Banshee. Top Thrill Dragster. Valravn. Apollo's Chariot. Twisted Timbers.

Should be quite an exhilirating sight from Racer, amplified by the fact that nothing around the coaster comes close to the whopping 220’ in the air that Steel Curtain is.
1. The Voyage 2. Intimidator 305 3. Maverick 4. Skyrush 5. Mindbender (Galaxyland) 6. Fury 325 7. Kumba 8. Goliath (Georgia) 9. The Beast 10. Phoenix

Whoa looks awesome, I like the looks of that little hill after (before?) the corkscrew and what on earth is that 2nd pic? The one before the final breaks, looks like a double inversion or a dive into a stall or something wild. (I only watched the animation once when released, I like to be kinda surprised)
Top 10 Steel: Steel Vengeance, Wicked Cyclone, Millennium Force, Storm Chaser, Skyrush, I305, Maverick, Lightning Run, Superman (SFNE), Kumba
Top 10 Wood: Voyage, Phoenix, El Toro, Boulder Dash, Mystic Timbers, Lightning Racer, Grizzly (KD), Legend, Raven, Beast
