dang looks like the video isn't there anymore. Was there anything of importance on it?

^If you're talking about the video from the JCC Planning Commission I just checked it and was still able to watch.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Hit the park today for my first time this year. It was very crowded and we decided not to stay real long. I got a few shots of the freshly topped Mach Tower for all to enjoy.

Got some info on the new coaster.

1. Coaster made by Zierer
2. 8 cars per train (16 people per train) load/unload 2 trains at a time in station.
3. Car themed (autobahn?)
4. Covered bridge finale where BBW drop was (approx. 126' drop) not sure if special effects are used.
5. The building looks to have a forest theme inside, with some kind of show finale before you exit the building.

EDIT: After looking up Zierer, I actually think they may pull something righteous off!

And this could also give the rumor of the vertical launch more footing... :cool:

Zierer. Well that's interesting.

^Yeah, the only launched coaster of theirs I found was Wicked, and that ride actually looks pretty good based on the illegal POV on youtube. ;)
