^I'm guessing the airtime in the back seat will still be good coming off the figure 8.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I think the drop is pretty nice looking. Definitely air, at least the back of the train.

the ghost seems to think there is a "Donkey Fairy"

Yeah, it actually looks a bit like Demon's first drop and it will be taking it with more speed. Not bad at all.
Been you to have any spike, man?

I'd say Cheetah's drop off the tower is looking pretty cool right now. Hopefully it will pack some good airtime (As in, I'm guessing Floater Air in the front, stronger air near the back of the train). :airtime:

The trains are looking pretty good as well. Hopefully, they will start testing soon!

I've been following this coaster's construction from the very beginning, cannot wait to see the layout when it's all finished!
Half of my posts on here are of me talking about roller coasters, but without me actually having rode them. I hate this.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

The drop looks nice, it isn't steep, but its parabolic in nature meaning that the airtime will be sustained, and later than most people are used to. Think of the drop before they modified it on Dudley Do-Right at IOA, it was an awesome feeling because the airtime hit later into the hill and didn't subside till you got to the second portion.

Here is a modified shot

The picture isn't mine, but if you look at the yellow edge that is the opening drop, the blue edge is the modified drop. Blue is still fun, just not the omg-wtf-craziness of the yellow.

They finally started working on the drop.

It's more gradual of a drop, but remember that the train will be going at a faster speed than the top of the figure-eight when it starts that drop.
