Lucky! I would kill to be able to get an opportunity like that!

That is beautiful!

What does the rest of the ride area look like? I know that turns just after the launch have the rockwork done, but is the rest still over dirt?
1. Skyrush | 2. Maverick | 3. The Voyage | 4. El Toro | 5. Outlaw Run
6. Millennium Force | 7. I-305 | 8. Medusa: SC | 9. X2 | 10. Phoenix

The way it sounds they filmed a bunch of these for different television markets, but I saw this on the local Sacramento morning show today:

Why does the ride rock back and forth before the launch. Is it there to enhance the effects with the dome?

^The heart of the park was gutted and remade. They moved a lot of dirt, built new structures, renovated others and built a coaster. Compared to Little Mermaid's alleged $100 million price tag (really? I don't know - don't take it as gospel), it's a bargain.
