Looks amazing. So happy to see another Intamin coming to the Southeast.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I love the promotional artwork!

Hopefully the lap bars are the same as the ones on Taron and Red Force. They're amazingly comfy.

Beautiful but doesn't look like traditional Intamin track does it?

Looks like second-gen Intamin track to me. I'm pretty sure that they're using a different track design for their newer major coasters- Hyperion and Red Force come to mind as examples.
1. Intimidator 305 2. Kumba 3. Twisted Timbers 4. Goliath (SFoG) 5. Mako
6. Twisted Cyclone 7. Alpengeist 8. Mine Blower 9. Montu 10. Incredible Hulk

Love the promotional content! Probably going to be a BG/SW passholder for the first time next year!

That artwork they released looks pretty great. The gods are a bit goofy, but the ride itself looks like it'll be pretty great.

Totally agree, I recently rode Red Force and the restraints are by far the best of any Intamin coaster I've ridden.

I kinda like the "teaser renderings". Now I do love the cedar fair videos and POVs and that sort, but the teasers and illustrations BG has been putting out makes it sort of more mysterious... like in the old days when all you really had from the parks was a logo and a couple of drawings to go by.
