yeah I mean this one is no where near the size of Hades or Voyage, and looks to have nice banking and great looking hills, I'm sure it'll be aggresive but I really think this will be a winner because it's more hills then a twister layout

The classic!

I gotta say, I'm quite pumped for this ride! I hope I can get out there next year to give it a whirl, it's looking pretty awesome so far! Plus I really like Waldameer, just a nice place to hang out, so any excuse to go back is a good one. That, and SPINNING DRAGONS WOOHOO

Why do I still have a donkey title???

^ Give me a shout sometime if you want to carpool down. ;)

I'm sure I'll hit up Waldameer this summer for this. The ride looks really good, and the park itself is really nice. And it's close enough for me to go and come home in a day.

Lake Erie looks like an ocean to me in all of those pictures. It's even better because there are no sharks, lol...

RF2 looks like it's going to be great, it will be my first GG coaster when I ride it.

I was driving back home today from a Pre-Thanksgiving trip to the US and had to do a detour to see the progress made on this coaster.

I really like Waldameer. It's a great place to spend a day, away from the standard CP visit.

I'm sure this ride is going to turn out great for them, and I really can't wait to give it a try.
