It's been a long time since I've looked at pictures of a ride and thought "Wow, I might actually be kind of scared to ride that."

This is one of those rides. Holy crap. There are so many NFW moments in those pictures, I'm still waiting for the bomb to drop and SFOT to let us all in on the joke that this isn't real, just a big PR scam. It just looks so.... wrong!

Thanks to everyone who posted pics!

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

Thanks for posting the pics! This ride truly looks EPIC, and certainly will plan a visit to Texas next year. I also concur these great elements supported by mostly wood does make me wonder how the ride will hold up over the long haul. Time will tell.

It looks like they have added extra wooden beams to make it look rickety... awesome! :)

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Yeah this is looking like one beast of a coaster just think they turned IMO the biggest POS on the planet beside Mean Streak into a number #1 looking coaster. Any one sure Intamin had no part in the making of this coaster lol cuz it looks like some as sick as they'd design.

Speaking of wood/steel will they need a new catagory in the polls b/c I beleave if it rides anywhere as good as it's looking then this is going to be the #1 hybrid in the world lol Or do they put wooden structured steel coasters in the steel poll?
