I'm curious about JK's thoughts on sightlines with this coaster and Hogsmeade.

Seriously, though, it looks wild. Kinda like Maverick and Taron had a baby that grew up big.

I didn't even know about it until a few weeks, maybe a month ago. :|

I’ve never been more excited about a Universal addition. I don’t know any other way to say it: this thing looks sexy. I also love how they’re putting up a unique, unexpected new element every day.

Nuthin' better than a naked donkey!

It’s like the Maverick heartline roll but (hopefully) done properly this time. :lmao:

The sightlines are definitely interesting now.

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

Looks incredible, I'm glad they've been able to continue work on it. With all the new coasters being built in the Tampa/Orlando area, it looks I’ll be making another Florida trip next year!

RMC and Alan Schilke really changed the landscape in coaster design, man. Everyone's beginning to adopt these outer-banked turns, stalls, etc. Embrace the twisty!!!
