Even with those restraints, the ride is basically Maverick on steroids with what looks like plenty of airtime and some wild, quick transitions. Since Maverick is easilly in my top 3 steel rides I gotta believe a 300 foot tall version is going to be pretty good... ;)

Just wait until they trim the fracker to death.

I don't know the difference between waist and waste.

Too bad 305 doesn't have a 95 degree drop. That would have been insane!

^If parks want something to brag about and get people through their gates, I wouldn't mind seeing something like that installed. It would turn heads, for sure.

I'm watching the webcam and it looks like something is going on by Anaconda. It looks like they got all those nascars from the 'junk yard' in one of Coaster crew's videos, and put them behind Anaconda. It's pretty close to I305's queue line so maybe it will have a little theming?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

...Maverick restraints, 90+ mph, and quick transitions is a bad combination in my opinion. I have a feeling there are going to be a "few" people holding their necks getting off this ride come April. It's one thing if the transitions are more drawn out like on Millennium Force, but this ride is really pushing the envelope with this layout. I just pray that they don't trim it to death to compensate for the restraints, speed, and transitions.

If so, this is very confusing... :?r


Which is exactly why people should not waste their time speculating on such things, just wait for the finished product.
