It took 40 minutes for the video to load on my computer.

Holy crap! That thing is definitely a Toro and Balder and then some! But also watching some other clips, it seems that first hill lags a bit slower then on Toro.. so I am still questionable if this beats Toro. Plus going fifty miles per hour into sharp turns... oh dear god. The MCBR looks to drain the ride, but still it looks freaken insane.

All I can say though is the more Plug and Plays in the World, the better.

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

40 minutes to load the POV? Jeez. Can anyone make a mirror or a direct download?
I am out of ideas for what to write in this signature box.

She turned me into a donkey! I got better...

Wow, thanks for the update and pictures! It looks like a fantastic ride. Everland seems like a really cool park, and I really want to go to South Korea now.

Fabulously FIERCE!

Don't worry Buddy Johnson, they're not pissed at you.

It's obvious that the videos are being overloaded. When you first posted the links, they worked fine. I got to see them. :br

No need to be upset, dude, it's not Buddy's fault, now. In time, they will go to youtube. I'm sure the rest of us can wait until then.

But man, those pictures are awesome!

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

One of the videos loaded straight away (the front POV) and the other will supposedly take several hours. I'm using RealPlayer's new flash download feature (great for saving YouTube vids, too!).

What a fantastic structure! I prefer the simpler, circular geometry of older coasters, I don't like slpine curves and high banking much - but I do love Balder, and I can't deny that I love the structure of these modern Intamin woodies. They're very precisely designed, yet look more random than most vintage coaster structures. It's certainly never going to be a bad thing having another of these in the world!

The beginning of the lift hill looks a bit... tight. I wonder how many people bonk their heads on this...
