Where do I sign up? LOL Anyway, if they make this compact I really hope it does not mean maybe sacrificing airtime, another good idea would be to add helix's (i.e. Ride of Steel) towards the end of the ride when the momentum has slowed a bit, personally I consider those more fun than overbanked turns.
I really feel this coaster is going to be unique and the biggest project for 2010. I am really going to keep track of construction for this coaster even though I might not get down there to ride it next year.
My feeling on the design is that they better have the layout different from MF. This is the second giga made by Intamin and it needs to be unique. My guess is that the trains will probably be different since MF's train design are nearly 10 years.
I can't wait to see the computer-animated POV and layout.

You don't need to worry about that. The terrain and land area differences alone will make this ride very unique when compared to MF. One can only hope it's better (i.e. contains airtime, "Bizarro-style" as opposed to floating over hills like you would when driving on a country road "Millie-style").
What did I say... looks like some sort of helix to me. I am surprised that they did not wait to start vertical construction until after the announcement, but I seem to recall someone saying they were behind schedule. Anyway, thank god and it is about time for some supports to be going up (even if it is only a few feet).
