Lookin' good to me. Blue track on the white structure looks nice.
You know, it would have been cool if they kept one of them... Even if they made it all RMC-funky in some way.
It's okay with me. It's because of those Helixes, that went on, and on, and on, and.... yeah, well. Maybe they're afraid that any helix in this new renovation will bring up locals' childhood horror memories of the old coaster that went on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and....
On second thought, could an inversion be done, within a helix of a wood coaster?

Not sure if this is actually old news, but I only just noticed this.
S&S has considerable experience working in Japan and has also worked directly with Nagashima Spa Land for Arashi if not more. Sansei if I remember correctly is based in Japan, and I'm pretty sure S&S and Sansei have merged to some extent, although I'm not 100% sure exactly how. Also, S&S has worked with RMC to make the track for its freespins. Based on these facts (or at least what I believe are facts, I could be wrong on some details) I personally think that S&S and Sansei are involved in the construction because they have knowledge on what one would need to do to build something in Japan (such as building codes, legal documentation, etc.) and because RMC is already familiar with S&S (especially considering that Alan Shilke has worked with both companies). Of course, I could be completely off, but it's an idea.
