Seeing how fast this is going over it's course makes me think they could run formula rossa at maybe a tad faster speeds? :p

Good thing there is no OTSRs. I do see one direction change on the twisty hill thing before the final small bunnyhill, but if I'm correct your talking about the transitions between flat turns like in the beginning of Maverick and on I305. El Toro has those transitions too, but because its just lapbars, there's no possible discomfort!


You are correct sir! I love El Toro, it's my #1 woodie. I can't wait for Sky Rush! I'll be there the end of June. Not sure if I can wait that long...
Coasternut,

EDIT: For some reason the youtube video won't embed in the post. Could a Mod please fix this for me? Thanks!


That baby is really hauling a$$. Maybe I'll finally like one of the new Intamin coasters. It's all in the restraints... or lack of!

awesome pictures. Is that all the covering that they will place over the path. This ride packs some serious OMFG speed over hills surely to throw riders up into their restraint like El Toro does over rolling thunder.... This could end up being a ride notorius for projectile cell phones and other miscellaneous unsecured items. Even in that first test video we saw something fly off the train. :lmao: This is the ride of 2012 IMO
Leviathan - "I am a B&M, I am clearly not the father. I305 is not my child."
Millennium Force - "Yes he is Maury... I am 100% sure"
Maury - "Leviathan ..... in the case of possessed juvenile I305 .... you are not the father!
Maverick - (giggles with guilty grin)"
