For some reason I really can't see this being a Mack ride, despite the park being a showcase for Mack. I wouldn't have thought that this sort of ride was what Mack was in the market for.
signatures suck.

I've always had to assume that the sound has to be incredible

^ I honestly think Mack has been improving over the past while now, and I think they've been gearing up for a big ride like this so they can join the big leagues with B&M, Intamin, and the other rising star Vekoma.

As for the poster shown above me a few posts, that looks like Journey To The Center of the earth mixed with a wicked sweet rollercoaster.

Can I park my donkey here?

In the past Mack was known for family rides and coaters. But Mr. Mack himself said in an interview that the market wants more thrilling coasters and so they decided to build thrilling ones. Thrilling rides combined with the Mack quality will be one of the best things i`ve ever heard in the coaster world :mickey:

and by the way, it will be much cheaper for mack if they produce such kind of the rides by them self... and they get a better market position against their competitors

So are Mack launch coasters more reliable than Intamin rocket coasters? :lmao:

Provided it will most likely not be an hydraulic launch (Intamin owning the patent), I would say yes ;)

Don't forget also that Mack is one of the most reliable manufacturer around with B&M...
