That must be the orange track people had pictures of going through ohio. That mysterious chance coaster that still no one knows where it is going
After riding Lightning Run I can not understand why parks are not lining up to buy some Hyper GTX models. That little ride rocks

Intamin has this awesome new VR way to show off their amazing drop towers! Dalton J. Fischer and I just rode! Worth it just for the simulated all Intamin surrounding park you can look at.
