So happy to see Gerstlauer doing triple launch now! It's a great upgrade for the park plus the Infinity Coaster trains are the most comfortable train I've been on.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

I think this coaster looks really fun!

And in related news, it's yet another smaller coaster type that would be great for MiA, that would totally fit well with their size, and provide nice ROI! But I digress...

That looks like fun! Maybe one day I'll get out of the US...

I do hope/wish they run dual stations though (like Mr. Freeze). That would almost double capacity. Overall, it looks like a ton of fun and a lot less violent than Premier Sky Rockets.

Violent? The Premier Skyrockets are some of the smoothest coasters out there.

Anyhoo Gold Rusher looks great, hope to see some of these in the U.S. some day.

It's a fairly small park, I don't think capacity will be that much of an issue. The old schwarzkopf has been running with 1 train for years.

Screw the fanboys, this ride looks fun and I think it will be a great fit for the park!

I've gone pantless!

Agreed. I don't think the Premier Sky Rockets are rough at all. Gerstlauer's launched rides are pretty smooth, too, so I think this will be a nice replacement for that old Schwarzkopf.

^He probably meant the ones with lap bars.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Yeah, I wouldn't say violent as there are indeed very smooth. But they also are very forceful and have strong laterals, maybe that's what conersteen was trying to say.

I'm not a big guy (although I get bigger each year), but I do find the cars cramped. Never had a problem with roughness though.
