Hey Joey, I have an unopened 2 Liter of Crystal Pepsi and some 7up Gold you could buy off me! lol

I prefer the more citrus taste of Pepsi, but don't have a problem drinking coke, and prefer Cheery Coke to Wild Cherry Pepsi. Speaking of the Dr. Pepper 7Up Distribution, it's really wierd here in Utah because Pepsi (Admiral Beverage) has those Distribution Rights North of Salt Lake City (Including Lagoon....you have to settle for Mr. Pibb) and Coke (Swire) Salt Lake City and South.

Hang on, doesn't China build a new forty or so building at least once a week? So guessing with most of this, it should be finished quicker than other places. It will be the theming that will take time.

MUST BUY RMC MERCHANDISE!!!!

Skyscrapers and theme parks are very different. In China, you have to sign all kinda of contracts and sometime steps need "special relationship" or certain government department will never let you pass them. Such thing can really take up to 3 years.

The Tron coaster looks really cool so far!

From the concept art I have seen it looks like it will have vehicles similar to the Jetski/ATV trains from Intamin, who should be much more comfy than the regular motorbikes.

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

:omg:

Concept art of the TRON Coaster? All I have 'seen' is the
proposed layout of the circuit that the coaster takes.
(It's posted back around the middle of this thread.)

So - you have seen concept art of the coaster train, itself?

Awesome if you have - and can you share, here? :)

^To be honest, I have seen RCT3 Custom trains looks better than that. I'm guessing it'll be your standard Vekoma motorbike train with modified body panels and a lot of neon.

This drawing (seen on Screamscape) seems more legit to me :

Random question, but does soda in China use cane sugar or high-fructose corn syrup?

However the final design of the ride train, it's going to be awesome.
And I'm sure the Imagineers' Black Light creations have come waaay
beyond what's remembered from the original 2D at DL in Fantasy Land.

Can't wait! :)
