It is located where Diamond Falls was. It's over in the Congo, I think it's right next to Anaconda!

I have yet to ride one or see one, but I have to say that I am intrigued. I mean, it's got to be better than building a Roller Skater or something right?

It does seem to have capacity issues, though.

^ Sorry Elissa, but I figure I can tell you that the PKD version lost the Copyright or whatever on Outer Limits, and now it's only FoF. The PKI version is stil Outer Limits though! Yes, I'm a complete coaster nerd!!!

^ Yes, we know, but it will always be "Outer Limits" to us!

^The reviews I have heard have been mixed. Some love it, and others hate it.


I saw a POV of the one at CW, and it looks fun, but not worth a long wait. Oh well, it will probably bring in more people, and give the kids something else to ride.

I actually had to think about that ;)

Can you post a link to it maybe? I'm interested in IJ, especially because I get to go to PKD next year! YAY :D !

I'm at least happy that Premiere is getting more work. Now that they have decent restraints on their rides, I kind of hope we see more stuff like Chiller or Mr. Freeze built.

Out of all the launched coasters built lately, people seem to forget that those were pretty damn good too!

PKI's Flight of Fear no longer has Outer Limits in it's name either :wink:

Lights, camera, action – the ride experience recreates the six scenes of the climatic final chase sequence of the film:

Scene One Race through parking garage
Scene Two Fly down subway stairs
Scene Three Dodge police cars
Scene Four Screech to a halt and narrowly avoid gunfire from a
helicopter
Scene Five Chase through sewer tunnel
Scene Six Plunge through a billboard and into an LA aqueduct


Am I to assume this is a slightly modified version of the existing IJ:ST coasters?
I don't post here enough to warrant a signature.
