Yeah, its pretty amazing how early its going up. I'm guessing that they wanted to wrap construction up before the park is buried in snow? Or maybe they wanted to sneak it in before the NIMBY people jumped in and put a halt to them.

Looks great! Makes me wonder if this'll be a bigger hit than Thunder Run. The park seems to love putting in new rides with plenty of airtime.

If it rides anything like the other Gravity Group small woodies, this will undoubtedly be more popular than Thunder Run. The Timberliners give a smooth and airtime filles ride in every seat.

Love it! I have still yet to ride one of these Gravity Group woodies, but Kentucky Kingdom has been on my radar for a few years now. This, Lightning Run, and Storm Chaser will be a very solid trio that not many parks can match.

I actually liked Thunder Run too. Thought that it was pretty smooth. Only dead-weight in the park IMO is T3, it went from being a headbanger to a SkyRush with the new restraints. Lightning Run and Storm Chaser are both top 20 steel for me.

Of course construction is moving fast. This coaster is tiny, which I'm not complaining about.
