I know the map is far from realistic, but that drop tower looks like a Larson tower based on the decorative piece on top. If that's the case that's awesome, those things are insane.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

I was just wondering "What style/shaping is Lightning Run using? I've seen it before..."
Then it hit me..
It looks like Phantoms Revenge! Which is good because that means lots and lots of :airtime: !
Excited!!

Donkeys are my way of life!

I think that's a pretty good guess. The picture on the park's website matches Larson's website and the height seems to also match.

It also looks like Lightning Run will be the first Chance Rides Hyper GT-X Coaster.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

Out of curiosity, does anyone know who's designing/building Lightning Run? It sorta looks like Chance Morgan's Hyper GT-X coaster model.
