For the note, I never even heard of this park until now. It looks like a cross between Lightning Racer's twisted layout, HP's great use of banked curves on Wildcat and a compact, twisted, woodie I would build on RCT.

I can see this coaster being a lot like Avalanche. There is so much in such a small space, it's probably going to be really wild and feel like it never loses speed.

OMFGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG

dude, i live in Houston, and as a roller coaster lover, i was sad to see Six Flags Astroworld go, R.I.P. (even though really the theme park was not up to par with say Over Texas or even Fiesta) but atleast NOW i don't have to drive 4 hours to get my rollercoaster fix, i do not even care if the ride is the talliest, fastiest, or what not, IT'S A ROLLER COASTER like less then 10 miles away from me...KEMAH HAS ANSWERED MY PRAYERS....

and so you know Kemah is basically a bunch of restaurants with some carnival type rides which is like 10 bucks just to ride the ferris wheel, but i do not mind paying for a coaster, hopefully it will be reasonable.

^^ I can't believe that you were the first person to say that! Avalanche, indeed. I just hope that it has higher capacity. Any idea where the trains are coming from?

Yeah. I don't like the whole out of Control feeling. I prefer the more, how should i put this, superior sort of layout, with a lot of hills, etc. More like the Voyage, then this new coaster. (Texas).


lmao. Voyage is the definition OF out of control. The only thing thats remotely "normal" are the first 2 hills...then its complete chaos. This ride looks very similar but rearranged in a triangular pattern with lots of swoop turns and tons of drops and hills. Sure they arent the large straight hills, but as Voyage shows, they can cram a hill anywhere they want, even in the middle of the turn.

You meant to say you prefer an out and back, but even then Id still say Voyage and this ride, if its got the same pacing, will be similar. Otherwise, GREAT ride. Its jumped to the top of my most anticipated list.

That ride looks really fun, but I wonder that because it is built over an entire acre it might be less intense, due to the streching out of the rough parts.

just a thought

Did my donkey title just change???
