^I've ridden three RMC coasters, and have been impressed by each of them: New Texas Giant, Twisted Colossus, and Goliath (which is the weakest of the group, but still a very good ride).

^^This statement boggles my mind! Have you ridden one yet? Not only are their rides visually stunning, but each and every one they build seems better and more amazeballs than the last. And NTAG was incredible to start from. Wildfire is just a new cherry on top of an incredible sundae of coasters that they have already amassed. IMHO, Storm chaser, the baby of the RMC family is probably in the top 3-5% of steel coasters in the world.

Still sad about Lightning Rod having to be torn down though. But it looked incredible on paper. Probably a top 5 woodie at worst. Thinking it could have been an easy #2 or #3. Too bad we'll never know.

Looking forward to getting to Kolmarden one day and riding this beast. It looks amazing!

Very well done RMC. My favorite part is where you go through the little shed and get whipped up and to the side through the head chopper support structure. I noticed 2 parts where the pacing slowed up but just a tiny bit. Ive watched the pov so many times now I lost count. You know you've built a great coaster when. Any off ride video anywhere?

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

A turn in the right direction? I don't know what you're smoking, but I think it's time to find a new dealer.

I don't always seduce Donkeys, but when I do I use classy Champagne!

That sounds pretty sweet as well! :br

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

I can testify to this! Storm Chaser never. Lets. Up. Absolutely amazing coaster, with airtime as forceful as anything I've ever ridden (usually more so!)
