Looks great, and with a full train and harder wheels it is going to fly over that last airtime hill!

Great video and being that I drive by on 1604 and get to see it everyday, makes me want to ride it even more. The direction the lift hill points and with the lights on at night, it looks alot taller than SKC even though there is not that much of a height difference.

Man, that last hill coming out of the tunnel going into the brakes looks like it's going to give some huge airtime. :airtime:

I was watching the video again an noticed from the top of the lift........Is it me or did they lay white rock around the coaster on top of the quarry wall??? It looks like they laid some cover up rock in a "u" shape from the barrel roll all the way around to where the train flys off the side of the quarry wall. Looks nice around the area nontheless. I can't wait for my next visit.

The ride really does look amazing! The cars look great, the ride looks like it hauls, it has a tunnel, and it goes off of a cliff! Really amazing looking ride!

Yeah, based on the offride footage we've seen we know that this thing hauls butt! Don't let the POV fool you, I'm sure it was taken during a random point in testing that resulted in trains not running as fast. Just be thankful the park is providing us with this awesome footage a month before the ride even opens! They ever said they will be releasing a full POV soon. Can't wait!

Wow. I can't wait to ride this thing. It looks incredible. RMC really outdid themselves this time. I have alot of great memories of the original Rattler so I can't wait to ride it again and create more memories now that it's the Iron Rattler.... plus it's considered another credit and I don't have that many so I kinda need it. ;) I like how they left the lights on in the tunnel, it really shows how tight it is. I never knew it was that compact. Lets just hope they keep them on! I think they said they would in a video but nothing is for certain.
