Hey Robb, this ride looks great! It's good to see you and the Mrs. riding together. It's been a long time since I've been to K.D. I need to get back there soon. It does look much better than Steel Vengeance. Just too much drama associated with that ride for me...
Coasternut,

Robb - Such a cool shot on Alpengeist and excellent video of Twisted Timbers. It was funny and interesting to see the different reactions between you and Elissa. They pack so much airtime and twist and turns on this ride. You captured the special nuances of Twisted Timbers perfectly and the video brings back awesome/fond memories of that ride and of the whole day!

Take Care, Paul (Gatekeeper)

As someone who considers airtime the most important part of a coaster, and who loves cutback/overbank turns, I've been excited to ride this one for a while. This endorsement is making me excited for my fall trip to KD even more!!!

Awesome report as always, Robb - thank you for sharing and capturing such awesome photos and videos! :)

I really need to get back to KD for Twisted Timbers. Michael's son's family all agreed that it's their new favorite coaster at either KD and BGW (they live in Richmond).
