^I mean lets be honest my pants have been missing since I realized an RMC was coming to the park 35 minutes down 95 from my apartment.

Looking good! If this ride is anything like Wicked Cyclone, it gets a thumbs up in my book. It's so refreshing to see Cedar Fair working with manufacturers other than B&M this year.

I'm super excited for that first drop! It'll be nice to have something a little different.

I personally prefer the standard RMC drops myself, but that's simply because of just how awesome they are. The barrel roll drops are certainly different, but still fun.

It seems like every opportunity that RMC has to execute a barrel roll drop (ie, ~180 degree turn off the lift), they do. I wouldn't be surprised if that trend continues into all of their future installations. I've only ridden RMC's with straight drops so far, but the ride is looking good!

Does anybody know if they announced the list of rides open for winterfest? Can't seem to find it anywhere.
