My guess is that the ride will have stuntman theme. What does that even mean? How do you theme a ride to look like that unless the ride will just have a generic theme to it.

Mullets never go out of style!

Kanonen (sp?) has a bit of a stunt man theme, by way of being shot out of a canon.

It just amazes me that a woody could fit into a space that small.
EDIT: ^Doh!

Awww. :) 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. =)

Too bad this one is a clone. Still good though because not many people have ridden it!

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.

Although VERY 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

Im not saying its bad that its a "near" clone but an original layout would have been nicer because GCI's layouts just get better and better.

Thanks for the pics Robb! Am I looking at this wrong, I thought it was going to be further back in the park. But, from the angle where you can see Batman, it looks like it will be towards the front. Doesn't matter though, can't wait to get down there this summer.
