I like the designs but I feel like they might restrict views a little. I really like creative front pieces but they should remain below the sight level.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I apologize if this question has been answered before, but are these trains recycled from Gwazi (obviously with new front pieces added)? I remember reading that somewhere and wasn't sure if it was true.
Steel: 176 / Wood: 32 / Total: 208
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Wow those trains look great! Can't wait to go back next year for Food and Wine festival.

This time though we (Yes me and a friend) won't lose our phones on Verbolten! (Got it back a few days later, not a scratch!)

Indeed they are, with lots of new parts and sanded wood surfaces! :lover:

I like the "new" trains. InvadR will probably be a nicely themed ride, at least, and I'll be happy if it's as good as Fun Spot's White Lightning.

Not only do I expect this ride to be a ton of fun but it should make Le Scoot even better too just because of the great visuals and interaction. I'm really excited for it.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

I have simple tastes, so I'm not a big fan of massive sculptures on the lead cars. However, the coloring and the refurbishment look great.

I just realized something. So if there are buildings throughout the ride, it might seem a lot faster. I'm hoping for Verbolten or higher level theming. That'll make this ride stand out above a lot of other GCIs, even if the actual ride isn't as thrilling.
1. Griffon 2. Fury 325 3. 1305 4. Maverick 5. El Toro

Griffon is amazing fight me
