Um, have you SEEN Rocky Mountain's coasters?

Roller coaster design / engineering is function first. Always.

I love the simple design of wooden coaster structures. I actually think RMC coasters look very graceful and not ugly at all. I think the bridge on this one is overpowering and unnecessary to support the element. It looks they were actually attempting to make it look like the Sydney Harbor Bridge or something along those lines and on that it just fails. That's just my opinion. It's not wrong or right. It is what it is. I'm sure the ride will be amazing and it wouldn't stop me riding it. It just wouldn't make my top twenty list of great LOOKING woodies, that's all.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^ Yes I know. Someone else brought up RMC to compare. I was disagreeing with them.

We were wondering whether the wooden floor below the inversion would be staying or not, and it appears now that it is gone.

So that is good! Can't wait to get out there and ride this thing! :b
