These custom trains are the same gauge as all other GCI trains, as we're the PTC trains the same gauge as all others. I don't know where you got the information about a change in gauge, but it is absolutely incorrect.

I thought I remember reading it somewhere, but of course I'm probably wrong. But I do know that the park does not refer to them as Millennium Flyers. There is something about them that is custom, besides the headrests obviously. It must be something in the chassis/wheel assembly that we are unable to see, because the seats and restraints themselves feel just like other GCIs.

I'm guessing the higher seat backs and on board lap bar position monitoring system may have something to do with the lower height requirement of 46", which may be why they are custom. I'm also thinking other GCI trains with theming may also be "GCI Custom Trains" and not Millennium Flyers.

I'd hope Lagoon hasn't contractually forbidden GCI from ever speaking about the project and we'll actually learn about these details whenever Lagoon decides to 'officially' open the ride.

Oh, and at the risk of repeating myself, I've met the guy who runs lagoonisfun.com and linearinduction isn't him, so what's that signature supposed to mean?

Awww, I'm so flattered you are continuingly obsessed with me, but I already have a husband.

Just not sure if you're taking credit for somebody else's work, or if there's some other meaning that you intend which isn't clear to me.

Those do look great, but I'd like to try going back to the original:

It is packed with airtime and crazy laterals with no discomfort whatsoever. I would be sad to see anything modified on that ride (except for the final two airtime hills, which are a little weak compared to the rest of the ride. Everything else is perfect).

It's great to see a comment like this, especially since Timber Terror didn't rank particularly highly in the TPR coaster poll. Oh, and since I see you specified the United States, I'm pretty sure it's my favorite in that category, too!

^^Neat to see three-across seating from back when parks would allow three people if they all fit. I heard that on Coaster (Playland), a third rider would would fall out on the second drop. I kinda doubt it, but then again, it's Coaster.
