Wow! They are really getting a head start. I figured the footers would be poured, but already putting up supports...wow!

When Raptor was constructed, the first supports didn't go up until late October. Of course they also had to remove the Mill Race.

I really enjoyed Talon at Dorney Park, The Patriot, which is very similar will look great in that particular area of the park, love the red white and blue theming, despite the fact many people thinking the stripe looks tacky.

I hope it doesn't turn out as much of a disappointment as Silver Bullet. This element looks pretty cool. http://rcdb.com/ig3244.htm?picture=8

Yeah, I find it slightly humorous and sad, at the same time, that nobody seems to really care about this project. After years of rumors and hopes, it finally happens but nobody pays attention. Sure, it has some similarities to Talon, and B&M hasn't been building a great deal of stellar rides in the last year or two, but this thing still looks pretty solid. I hope it turns out to be a really good ride.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

Patriot looks like it has a second set of magnetic brakes. B&M's starting to pick up on that idea.
I am out of ideas for what to write in this signature box.

Some of these transitions looks tighter and more heavily banked than talon. It appears to be a more Intense version. That Inclined helix looks to good. The angle on that looks close to Mantis's Inclined Loop.
