I can't believe construction is already done on the track, felt like just yesterday they were pouring footers, *sniff*, Gatekeeper grew up so fast.

All jokes aside, kudos to Cedar Point!

People are idiots. They'll complain about anything just to hear themselves talk.

It's because the animation is called CONCEPT ART!!!

Not everything ends up looking exactly like the concept art. Deal with it.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I'm not intending that the trains look worse. They look amazing whether yellow or brown. I was just wondering if anyone knew why the color was different. It was just for curiosity.

It looks great! I can't wait to see it start testing! I think the trains are fine. Don't see why people are complaining about them.

mmmmmmmmmmm.... Gatekeeper. Looking forward to eventually giving the Wing Coaster a second chance (WE = rather tame)

I totally can't wait until I see videos of this thing testing, but I kinda am not looking forward to it, because then I will see countless posts of people complaining how slow it is (by the way, that is most likely caused by the fact that B&M has made probably only five really good coasters since the turn of the millennium, and that it will still be rather cold when they do start testing so it will be loads slower than it usually will be thanks to the lubricants. And I figure the new wheels need to get broken in a bit as well. I know my soapbox is short and no one will probably listen, but it's worth a shot.)

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

Train colors: Sunset Gold, with Zenith Gold, Meteor Gold and Orion Gold accents


From the CP website. I'd say they nailed the "sunset" color on the head. Obviously when the animation was created, they either didn't know the actual color, or CP didn't inform the animator of the specific color and they just made it as close as they could. The exact train color is hardly a detail that matters in a ride rendering video. No matter what, it doesn't matter because it looks amazing (and much better than the bright yellow gold in the animation.)

If the donkey is rockin, don't come knockin!

Keep in mind that I'm dead serious when I ask you this.
Can I quote you on this?

Thank you! This is the answer I was looking for. I think other people were taking the COMMENT I made and making it sound like some massive complaint. It wasn't! I never said the trains look worse! All I was wondering were why the trains' color looks different. I'm glad someone understood me.

It was. And it was a dumb comment. Take responsibility for what your write. Don't try to blame other people for you sounding like an idiot.
