I remember reading about this coaster I think on coasterbuzz. I don't think this is a Grvity Group coaster, and I have two reasons. First, The layout does not like like a gravity group coaster, but rather a GCI as some have already mentioned. Second, if you look at the last of the four pictures Jakizle had on his post, the train on the model screams Millennium Flyer to me. I would say someone mixed up the designer becuase of the simmilar initials. But I agree, It looks like an awesome ride regardless of who makes it! Count me in as one of those "I would have gone to Houston until they took down Astroworld, but now I wanna go agian!" people!

Well, I have been wrong before Robb. I just thought otherwise about the GG thing, but no one is always right :) Still looks like a great ride

How far away is the place from downtown Houston? I see it is on the waterfront, but is it actually put of Houston or a nearby city?

I'm surprised this hasn't been posted, but here is a little more "proof" that its a Gravity Group product.

Heh... heh...

What's with the tongue twister slogan thing? "A lot of length on a little lot!"

Fair enough, I will conceed the notion of it possibly being a GCI.

Ok it looks like this thing goes under the station and thru a 90 degree turn (as mention earlier). It looks rather confusing to me!
