Nice work from Robb, all has finally revealed.

I guess the $25 million question - has GeForce and SFNE's Bizarro been topped?

I may have to add a mini Intimidator trip when I come over for Halloween.

Just saw Robb's video, and this ride looks incredible! I look how much "twisty" it has, especially the first one after the drop.

Okay--but that's what normally happens with new rides, too.

Atleast the MF has capacity over this ride though. The trains seem to be only 5 cars in length and I'm guessing only 2 will be operating normally.


They only have 2 trains for the ride. I don't know how many cars they actually have, but RCDB says 8 cars per train.

^^^^That's a very long train. I'm having a hard time picturing an 8 car train negotiating those transitions. Sounds wicked!

Wow, the recording shouting "Start your engine!" will get very annoying, really quickly. Thank GOD the recording at Carowinds doesn't have the announcer screaming it like a rock god...
Just keep swimming...
