That being said, Untamed keeps looking better and I can't wait to experience it.


Yeah, which is a bummer!

I mean, I like the RMC rides I've been on (so far that includes Goliath, Joker, Steel Vengeance, Wicked Cyclone and Storm Chaser), with Wicked Cyclone and Goliath being my favorite of the bunch actually. All really fun, though. I just would love to see RMC pump out something like Voyage or something comparable, in terms of airtime and layout, with their I-Beam track. Would be a huge hit, me thinks.

^ That's one reason why I like Twisted Timbers over Steel Vengeance, because of the repeating relentless traditional airtime hills that TT has. A twisty RMC is still a GREAT ride that I would take over 99% of what's out there, don't get me wrong, but I would like to see that as well.

I don’t think you’re crazy at all. I place Storm Chaser above Outlaw Run, Goliath, and NTaG (all the other RMC’s I’ve ridden) because it focuses on sustained ejector airtime. All the latter were good rides but aren’t all that as some people suggest. Abrupt ejector doesn’t really do that much for me.

I have the same predicament with Lightning Run. A GREAT ride, but not something I rave about. It has particularly abrupt airtime even amongst’s Allen’s creations (within my experience) and I just wish I could have more time to enjoy each moment.

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

Just saw the final Inversion on a Dutch Forum. The person couldn't link the official source so I won't post it here. But the inversion looks like a low to the ground version of Outlaw Run's 153 Degree Over-banked Curve. That means that the final lay-out will be as shown down below (I know the image isn't 100% correct it's more the idea that counts):

(The final inversion is on place 15 and will curve towards Airtime Hill 9 not away from it.)
I'm a fan of it. I just love the fact that all the inversion's are spread out around the lay-out, It really points out how much wasted potential Robin Hood had with it's flat parts at almost every corner.

Here's another video from Looopings, Untamed's track layout has been completed. I can't believe it opens in less than two months!

Interesting to read some of the feedback about some RMCs having too much going on in the layout. I'm inclined to agree. I felt that Steel Vengeance having so many elements packed into the design detracted from the experience a bit. The ride is exceptionally huge, and Millennium Force right across the park showed the value of having drawn-out maneuvers that allow riders to experience the incredible speed. I'd like to see RMC find a good middle-of-the-road approach, a la some of the examples listed by Invertalon.

That said, focusing specifically on Untamed, I'll take too much going on over what the ride was as Robin Hood. Oof.

That first drop must be like being pushed backwards off a cliff! I guess it's not being tested for the public as there's no floor on the back of the train. Hopefully if it does become permanent they'll put a 'front' on the back of the car too... one good thing about double-ended trains is that it doubles the photo opportunities.
