AFAIK, there's not much wrong with the trains. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Wow...
Look at that crazy angle on the footers! Helix a la SRoS, anyone?

It luckily won't be like S:RoS because the footers aren't in that shape. I would say the turn is around 270 degrees not the 540 degree turn that S:RoS has.

S:RoS also doesn't have banking near that steep.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

It depends on what S:RoS your talking about.

If he's talking about the one at SFNE then I would love it to be S:RoS.
If he's talking about the one at SFA then no I would not. That ride is boring!

^I don't think the ride is quite boring, it just has boring parts like the helices and straightaways, buuuut I've never been anywhere near that ride so I can't have an actual opinion on it.

ON the KDfansite it says you can call a phone number and the audio of the announcement will be live at 11:00 ET, does thsi mean I could call at 8:00 Pacific Time and listen in??

I know quite a lot about Donkeys!

^Yes, that would make sense.

In that second video posted one page back, I had no idea that much track was on site and if you look at the piece of track at 1:31, that is one seriously large and twisted piece of track. I cannot wait until tomorrow. I don't think I have been this excited for a coaster since Maverick.
