Oh yes the Gravity Group goodness :)

This ride (as with all GG's) I am quite sure will be amazing!

By taking a look at Bullet's older brothers (Voyage and Hades) this ride is going to be amazing!

I will be following the construction for this ride very closely.

Thanks for the great photo's coasterphoto they are appreciated.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Looks like progress is coming along, the banner looks cool, too. Does anyone know what part of the ride that is?

I hope I somehow get to ride this.

I believe it's the section of track that will be to the front of the station...as in you'll leave the station looking at the section that is currently going up before turning to go up the lift.

I Love Donkeys!

Boardwalk Bullet, eh? Sounds like a badass coaster name to make up for the renaming of Hellevator...

And on that sign, did anybody mistake that bullet for the Mario villain "Bullet Bill"?

I havent been this excited about a coaster here in texas eva. when the titan opened at SFOT, i wasnt that excited because i had already ridden the goliath. i live 40 minutes from KEMAH and i think that I will be adding a lot of miles on my car this summer. I just hope that it runs daily and not over $5.00 per ride. If it is i will be dippping into my 401K. I was a big fan of height, but these woodies nowadays have so many elements, banked turns and airtime that height isnt as important to me.

They've got quite a few people putting this one together.

This should certainly be on your "must do" 2007 coaster list!

Anyway, its looking a little better then i previously assumed. But whereabouts is the Boardwalk in this place? Looks like Rural Texas from the photos I've seen!
