Out of curiosity, why do some people think that Intamin woodies aren't "real" woodies? The only real answer I've been able to pick up is that they are too smooth for a woodie. With all due respect that's about as stupid as calling a steel coaster a woodie becuase it's too rough for a steel coaster. I mean no disrespect, but is there more to the argument than that? ..or is it simply a matter of preference?

It has more to do with how the ride is built than how smooth it is (at least that's what my "beef" would be in calling it a woodie)

How is it built any different from normal woodies? I'm not trying to argue, I really just don't know.

Well El Toro is "the bull" in Spanish and thats a Frontier themed area so it makes sense. I believe the fabrication is different because instead of layered wood with metal on top of it, the pieces are laser carved out of pieces of wood so theres less connection points and it can be bent more and heartlined. So with the layers gone, it vibrates less and feels more in control and the turns are transitioned and banked more so you don't get thrown to left or right as much.

2 + 2 = donkey!

I personally would consider that wooden coaster but a different type IE (Steel supports wood track), so I see it as wood but prefabricated wood :D
