Thats not a Mack. It's made by Maurer Söhne, which is a completely different company.

Indeed, many Macks do have the reputation of being forceless, even though there are examples that show another face (I'm thinking of Lost Gravity and especially Helix). This ride will be a whole different beast and most likely awesome.

It does look really nice in person. You can see more than in the photos too; a lot of it is hidden behind trees, but the human eye is better at detecting such things than a camera is, so you can see quite a bit more of the track standing right in front of it.

Also, they've already started selling merch.

Looks like it's coming along nicely! The station looks even better with the fresh paint on it. Thanks for the awesome pics!

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

Woof, not sure how anyone likes that bland suburban color scheme. Obviously it's far from finished with all the aesthetics that I'm sure they'll add, but I don't like the colors. I thought they were going to go with the white and grey paint that they had made a test patch for.

Meh, just add on some cool themeing and I won't care much about paint colors any way.


Oh yeah, I had forgotten that Laff Track was made by MS. Still though, point stands.

Went to SDC yesterday, I love it how Time Traveler runs parallel with Thunderation during some sections of it.They were herding us through Wildfire like cattle, though. Powder Keg broke down at around midday, I was glad to at least ride it once. Outlaw run hardly had a wait time when I rode it twice.

Now my question is, are they going to expand in the 2019 season? I honestly think they could expand out past Outlaw run, it seems like they could just pave past it and keep building onwards.

Judging from the recent photos, it looks like the queue line will have a similar set up to Outlaw Run where the trailblazer line is directly to the left of the brake run/transfer track, while the rest of the queue is to the left of the trailblazer line. . . Hey, if it works let them keep using it!!

Loving how this coaster is coming along!! I'm still holding out hope that the spinning will be manageable, but we will never know till it's open!

Nope, 2019 will be an off year. SDC hasn't had big attractions in back to back years in a long time, and there's no reason to expect it.

They do have several intentional expansion points, including past Outlaw Run, past Powder Keg, and the employee lot next to Elephant March. There's no rush to expand, but they will use the land when they're ready.

Note to self: 2019 is a pretty good 'quiet' year to visit SDC .....and Dollywood. :smile:

But I'm already booked for Knott's and Disney, then. Hmmm. Maybe 2020 perhaps?
