Those Intamin rafts look like they might be slightly cramped.

The Skywarp Eclipses look insane!
In my opinion El Toro and Intimidator 305 ride fairly and are free of material roughness.

Coaster Count: 113

Donkeys give me orgiastic scream!

I personally like the Skywarp Horizon, and it seems like it would be more economical than the other two models for sale. I can literally imagine a whole area of some theme park with all three models :lmao:

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Great Alan Schilke interview! Bonus points since it was totally on the fly.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

While it might be the cheapest to build, I think eclipse is the easiest to manage and might be cheaper to operate. Eclipse is the only model with a single platform with only one entrance and exit. Everything else will have two separate stations, and two lines, or a split.

lol! Thanks! It really was! That whole live stream obviously was completely unedited and impromptu in every way! Honestly, I think I liked doing that WAY better than the old style of going around and asking everyone questions which they mostly cannot answer.
