^ Thanks for that. Seemed like maybe something big by the way they used like 16 posts to do that, but cool nonetheless I guess.

Fun Spot is hard at work erecting their new coaster in Kissimmee. This appears to be Viking Voyage from Wild Adventures as Scream'n Eagle is still operating in Atlanta based on their website and Facebook page where people were talking about how rough it was as recently as a week ago. The color scheme on this second picture backs this up too.

I've always been intrigued to try Viking Voyage since the clone of that ride up this way literally fell into the ocean before I could ride it.

Oh man, I didn't realize another one of these existed out there. Ugh, I'm torn between wanting to hate-ride this for nostalgia's sake and wishing for another natural disaster to come through and spare people from riding this one, as well.

I've always wanted to ride one of these large milers, since it looks like they can give solid air on the drops.

^ I can confirm that Scandia Screamer did. However, that ride didn't have that terrifying looking low-to-the-ground turn after the drop or borderline hairpin turns.

The Miler in Ocean City (Wild Waves, around Gale Force) is legit one of the best family coasters I've ever ridden.

When I rode Scream'n Eagle in April, it was smooth to me. I actually enjoyed it. I only went since it became a Fun Spot park and it was on my way back to FL after my SFOG visit.

When it one was at Wild Adventures, it was the best coaster in that park. It's the only one I kept riding over and over again. I love it. If that one is indeed the one being erected at the FS Kissimmee park, I'll be quite thrilled (especially since I don't like Mine Blower).

The Miler at Fun Spot Atlanta isn't rough at all. I also just rode it about a week and a half ago. What is rough is how it and the rest of the park looks. Woof. Place is a dump.

^ Scream'n Eagle has some very aggressive turns towards the end, but I personally like that.
