Exactly, or even like I said above, the ground can be altered to make things work.

I thought about it, but I figured it would look a little weird. However, the idea just came to my head that they could bury the station, ala Air at Alton Towers (I'm not calling it Galatica because f*ck VR).

Kirnu in Finland's station is also underground, and it's actually a zacspin

KK just posted that they are adding a Larson Loop called Eye of the Storm to their FB Page, and it looks like Thunder Run will be getting a new train as well.

Here's a link to the article, it'll be a good addition but I just don't get excited about these loops:

That's probably what's going where the dragsters were, and that's kinda disappointing.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^Agreed!

Although to us a Super loop isn't all that exciting - for this park and to the general public it is a great addition.
