I love how compact this ride is. I can't wait to see all the weird and crazy things RMC can do with this track.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^If these two are a hit, this opens up opportunities for a lot of land-locked and small parks to get exciting new coasters.

Man, it's going to suck to see this thing and not be able to ride it this weekend. We just may have to take a flight to Texas (never been to Fiesta Texas...) to ride this later in the year instead and visit a new park some weekend. This one looks better though, for sure, with all the theming in place. Will add a lot to the experience, no doubt.

I’m very interested to see how well operations go on these Raptor coasters. I watched a video of Wonder Woman doing continuous three-train testing, and it looks pretty smooth with the continuous loading station. I wonder how different it will be with Railblazer, since this one won’t have the moving station as far as I know.

I do, however, prefer Railblazer’s colors, theme, and name. That black and green train is going to look so good flying over orange track.

RMC is the future of roller coasters.

LOVING THOSE TRAINS!!! Not sure how I feel about the red train on the burnt orange track. I personally think it would've looked better with a green or yellow train.

There was a green train, but we don't talk about the accident...

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.
