Is it confirmed that Kentucky Flyer will have two trains? I know some similar Gravity Group family models only have one. Although KK is a larger park compared to parks like Quassy and Story Land, so I suppose two is probably likely.

Yes, it will have two. One train will be blue, the other grey.

Looking good to me. May not be 200+ feet, but to me looks just as fun.

I might have to work at the park that night, but I reserved myself a spot just in case I'm not. I'm going to try to request off that night. I'm excited!

I figured it'd be ready by HoliWood Nights, but that's good to have a confirmation it'll be previewed next month. I'm looking forward to riding this.

^ I can confirm they're incredibly comfortable. I'll take them over Millennium Flyers or PTCs (unless there are buzz bars).

They're so comfortable that they allow you to ride Hades 360 without dying of jackhammering shuffle pain so I think that says it all. Great trains.

Question for those that know... do all parks with Timberliners require their employees to pull on the restraint with their bodyweight? At Mt. Olympus the loading is really slow because they literally lean back w/ their full weight on each bar and tug. I wonder if they've had issues of them not being fully locked before.

Story Land pushes down somewhat hard, but I don't remember there being anything more than the usual check at Quassy, Fun Spot, or ZDT's.
