But what's up with those colors??? :wtf:

It's themed to Survivor, so I guess they wanted it to look earthy.

Not a credit, unless you were really desperate.

I don't think this would count as a credit. I think it is going to be powered, and unless you're a credit whore it does not count as a credit.

I saw a video of this in action, this looks WAY FUN! Possible air-time on this one. But I have to agree, this is not a credit since it's powered. But then again, so are impulses. :)

Impulses are launched, not "powered". ;)

I wouldn't count it as a coaster, but that's just one man's opinion.

Hopefully that rust color isn't in the final color scheme but I would imagine it is, the green's OK.

Just good to see them get something new without taking something else away.

Isn't it actually propelled by a friction wheel like the normal Disk'O, therfore making Matterhorn the same way with the booster wheels under the track.

I would only count it as a credit if:
1) It wasn't powered
2)If there was more free rolling section than powered section if the track had LIMs on it.

But I think the car it's self is powered, so no coaster.
