It does look like nice family ride--those lapbars really do wonders for those jr. suspended coasters.

Also, I loved the news anchor at the end: "I'm a big fan or a good breaking system" HAHAHAHA! :lmao:

Good brakes are, indeed, important.

Looks like a great ride! Very cool that an inverted coaster (albeit a jr. one, and the 2nd) has lap bars only, I really like that. Do those seats have a *tiny* swing or 'give' to them? Am I seeing that right?

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

Here is the very first test run:


And this is a compilation of the first few test runs. You can see how crazy fast it is!

Here are the first two riders on White Lighting. I'm assuming it's two of the GCI guys...
