Most of you know we had a film shoot out at Kemah Boardwalk last weekend and now I've got the photos & video to share with you all!
First, let me get a little announcement about a new DVD series we are bringing out.
It's called "Roller Coasters in the RAW!" and Volume 1 will feature coaster built within the last 5 years. It's called "in the RAW!" because that's exactly what it is, RAW coaster footage, just how you like it! No annoying music, no pointless commentary just RAW coaster footage!
Volume 1 will include coasters such as Boardwalk Bullet (duh!), Maverick, Renegade, Tatsu, Troy, Furius Baco, The Voyage, SheiKra, Kentucky Rumbler, El Toro, Phaeton, Hades, Zaturn, Thunderbird, and much more! 30 coaster POVs in total!
Roller Coasters in the RAW will be available on November 15th, 2007.
Anyway, onto Boardwalk Bullet!
We arrived at 9:00 in the morning and met with about 25 TPR members for a filming session that would take them through 17 rides on Texas' most aggressive, most INSANE wooden roller coaster!
Let me warn you now, Boardwalk Bullet is NOT for the weak! This ride will tear you a new soul!!! If you're looking for an intense roller coaster, Boardwalk Bullet is THE place in Texas to be.
The ride covers a serious amount of track in a very small, compact space. The design of the ride is fantastic, although I do have to say that some of the trackwork leaves a bit to be desired. It sort of feels like a "GCI woodie that doesn't track very well." I am told though, that a lot of the track work will get attention over the off season. That's a good thing!
It was nice to see Houston get a wooden coaster so quickly after Texas Cyclone was destroyed. At least this is a tradition that will live on in Southern Texas.
Anyway, onto some photos and of course, a brand new TPR video!!!
