I love the rock work! Who cares if it's a clone? It looks like it's going to be a great ride and fit in really well at the park, and it'll be unlike anything else in the state. Congrats, CGA!

Is this the first time SF and CF have both announced clones of a prototype? Feels a little awkward. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Yeah I dont really get disappointment over clones, if it's a clone of a great ride then it's great.

Come one. Come all. Ride the roller coaster in my pants.

If the scenery around the ride will look anything like the rendering, it's gonna look great!
Lol I love how low-key this announcement was compared to CP's and KD's. The reaction of the crowd to the rendering was just "whoa..." instead of "YEEAH WOOOO!!!" :lol:

That looks very nice! And unlike the SFFT version, this almost looks like it was designed to go in that location!

I forsee a lot of complaining enthusiasts regarding that it's a clone. I don't care, I think it looks fantastic! The theming is a surprise too! Can't wait to get up here opening month

Wow. Cedar Fair outclassed Six Flags even at a clone.

Wish it wasn't a Raptor but this does look like a good ride with decent theming.

I LOVE IT! It's a mirror image, but I personally think it's visually appealing than Wonder Woman! =) The rock work theming is just stunning! Definitely making plans to visit next year!

Oh darn. What a tragedy. :roll:

This looks much more superior than Six Flags. It's crazy to see the difference a little theming can do to a coaster!
Bigger is not always better. (And anyone who has ridden Wonder Woman knows this is true!)
