Awesome! Thank you! Honestly, I've seen MUCH MUCH worst "testing" videos. At least yours wasn't some "Blair Witch" style thing where you couldn't see the track! :Pr

Man oh man, i had the chance to see the first 3 test runs fromout my workspot (about 20 meters from Troy). Damn, every fan who showed up, totally freaked out win the train was running the track! The sound is just heavenly good and each run, it got faster and faster! Now i seriously can't wait anymore!

Whoa!It looks AWSOME! I'm pretty positive this coaster will be a "top 10" for most people who ride it. It looks GREAT!

Did GCI ever make a CGI (heh.) video of Troy? I can't wait for a real POV! That thing is amazing, though. WAY better than the forest of trees it was made out of.

I'll save my judgement till I ride, but besides the first drop it looks like it crawls through the course.
I know it has to be worked in.

You also gotta remember these are the FIRST trains they've dropped. And from the looks of it they had no water dummies in them. So there was no weight in the train.

I'd say it's a pretty unfair comment to make given those conditions.

Thanks for the video! For me, the name and the theme have always peeked my interest. Now to see in action, I can say it doesn't disappoint on video, just wish it were closer.

This has been one of the coasters that I've been looking at with a lot of interest, (even though I'll probably never ride it anytime soon!). It is loud, but that thing is flyin'. Hope I do get a chance to ride it someday, along with just about every other coaster in Europe.
