How is it that it only goes 51mph when it has a 91ft drop? Texas Cyclone only had an 80ft drop and it went 65mph.

Well for one, it's always hard to judge a woodies speed as they run so inconsistent. Usually when you look at a ride ID plate for a woodie it will say between x and x MPH. I'm guessing that SF just took the second X and milked it as the top speed of the ride for Tex Cyclone.

There are other factors as well as how much the ride is greased, where the person with the radar gun stood, etc. In any case the "top speed" of a woodie should never be taken as seriously as they are so inconsistent.

Awesome ride! Finally something to be excited over in Texas. I hear there are supposed to be tunnels featured somewhere along the course as well.

I Love Donkeys!

That is one insanely tight layout!
I'm glad that the guys at GG went with a traditional coaster(and structure) this time. Not that I have anything against my homepark's woodie, Hades. :)

Great looking coaster. One acre now that's something great. The small rumor of my home park looking at adding a coaster to the present Antic car ride location is sounding more realistic now.

Well, I am quite impressed with this ride. A nice compact layout with some airtime hills thrown in there. (Yes, I did see some hills). For some reason, it looks vaguely like a mix between Kentucky Rumbler and Mean Streak. I haven't been on Kentucky Rumbler, but who's to say I don't like Mean Streak? =)
