That brings back my memories of seeing Renegade getting built. I'm happy for everyone whose excited for this! I know the joy of getting something fresh, new, and exciting. And although the wait til opening day may seem trillions of days away, it's all worth it after the first ride.
I know. I can't wait to ride EK. I just hope it opens ahead of schedule but if it doesn't I'll just have to wait till May.
I cant wait to ride Renagade one day!
Too bad this one is a clone. Still good though because not many people have ridden it!
similar, EK is not an exact clone of Thunderbird. There are some minor differences.
Quote from Screamscape.
One of our readers in Finland noticed something very interesting about the new Evel Knievel coaster going to Six Flags St. Louis… that it’s a damn near copy of Thunderbird in Finland’s Powerpark. There are some minor statistical differences (Evel’s about six feet shorter, a few mph faster, but layout wise what from what I can tell the only difference is that at the end of the second “out” run, Evel adds another set of track cross-overs and will pass under the first drop, taking that final far turnaround from left to right. Other than this one point, allowing for a slightly longer straight run of bunny hops on the return trip, the rides look fairly identical
