I love how massive it looks compared to that small and once-quite footbridge. :lmao: Can't wait for this thing.

I heard on the rumor mill that there was a fitment issue with the original piece and they had Intermountain Lift fabricate a new one so they were held up until that piece came back.

^Seems like a common problem with S&S lately. At least between this and Gale Force. Curious if Maxx Force at SFGAm will have any similar issues.

S&S used a different track fabricator for Gale Force. After that fiasco, they switched to Intermountain. For as complex as the structure is on Curtain, one piece that's off is pretty good. I remember hearing how Arrow would never manufacturer the final piece until everything was completed to make sure it would fit.

Arrow also designed rides without CAD for most of their existence so it's a little different.

I love donkeys more than me.

I wanna fly out and ride this and Sky Rocket since it was down for my visit. Hopefully they can finish this thing up quick and have it open by late summer
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

This coaster is sure growing on me. . . It looks much better IRL than I thought it was going to based off the concept art.
Bigger is not always better.
