If the advertising isn't a lie, then this will be a must-ride for the first few seasons, then quickly become another rough, "maybe if the line isn't too long" ride.


Um they said wooden coaster, not hybrid or steel. :P

I have some construction pics if anyone wants to see, trying to do a trip report but we know how that goes. (I still have one from the year Valravn opened. lol )

I believe it's GCI as I've heard people say they've seen GCI marked stuff around the area of construction.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I saw this Coaster in construction 2 weeks ago. Nice placement- looks fun-definitely looks like a GCI. It sure doesn't look more than 180 ft. high but looks can be deceiving. It should be a nice addition to the Park.

I visited this Park on a Saturday two weeks ago. It was a very hot August day. Right before school starts so I expected a large crowd. The crowd size was a minor annoyance. It is Texas in August so the heat was expected. What was not expected was the performance of the Park. My visit mostly sucked in many ways. The shows were good. The way Sea World handles crowds before and after shows sucks. Operations were very slow. Food stands were slow. The park ran out of ice at 3:00. Many stands had no ice and hope of more.... In August, in Texas. The excuse was "well it is a very busy day". OK, but didn't you expect a large crowd on a Saturday right before school starts? Not the fault of the Teens working the stands- this was a management issue. I did register a complaint to a manager. I was polite. He said he appreciated the feedback.

I will go back on a less crowded day and try them again. Visited Fiesta Texas on Sunday- completely different story. Jeffery Siebert must be awesome. I will report on that trip in the Fiesta Texas thread.

The tallest woodie in Texas is only 97 feet so it only needs to be 98 feet tall to claim the title of "tallest."

Looks like a great addition to the park!!!

Now the real question is.... How long until it gets RMCed? :devil:
Bigger is not always better.
