From reddit, RMC track has shown up to the park and is indeed a nice purple. The color looks so beautiful.

^ From that article: "The track is designed to "mimic the awe-inspiring agility of the world’s largest and most powerful cat – the tiger.""

I thought it mimicked an electric eel, or maybe a zombie, or Superman...

I mean... yeah. Did you think they were going to throw in an invisible drop track and six more barrel rolls?

Why did you ride it 9 times then? :lol:

PS: Do you even enjoy theme parks?
