I will laugh so hard if Kennywood loses a sports bet with another park and they have to temporarily rename this coaster. :lmao:

Steel Curtain sounds awesome too (and this is coming from a Patriots fan who absolutely despises the Steelers).

Saving the ravine for RMC???

"Cedar Fair will NEVER build a coaster taller than MF..." until 2015

Yeah, It was used to describe the Steeler's defensive line in the 70's because it was one of the best defensive lines of all time.



Ok thank you! That makes the name a little less random lol!

Even though I can’t stand the Steelers I love this addition.

The pavilion looks great and the ride is unique.

Just another reason to go back.

I'm glad they put up the clearer video, this thing is so odd. I look forward to riding it. That first drop looks like S&S found the old Drachen Fire plans and went "Why hasn't anyone done this lately?"
The Steelers theme is "Meh" but the ride looks nuts and hopefully is a lot fun.

Oh WOW. That layout is batshit insane. As long as it rides well, this is going to be incredible! I can't wait for this one! :airtimer: :airtimer: :airtimer:

Couldn't care one way or another about the sports themeing in general but since it's an excuse to paint it Pittsburgh colors, it works for me.

In all seriousness the ride looks amazing and it's awesome to see something totally unique and innovative. Obviously we can't wait to ride it and the theme won't impact our enjoyment of the ride in any way but like... did it have to be the Steelers? :lol:
