Which would be fine, if the parts that GCI has redone didn't feel so smooth - not in terms of bumpiness (you can't really feel bumps thanks to the foot-worth of padding in those cars), but in terms of the curvature and how it rides. If the bottom of the first drop happened to always be the smoothest part of the ride then forgive me, but when I rode it definitely felt modern and like it didn't belong with the rest of the ride, which is wonderfully imperfect.

Glad to see that they are taking care of this ride. Sure it may not have the same "classic" feel to it when it is done, but I would take it being re-done and being around for at least another 30+ years than for it to be scrapped. I will have to see how this rides sometime in the future compared to when we rode it during the Northeast Tour in 2011
"Imagine the Crystal Beach Cyclone with a Gerstlauer train!"
Love that ride manufacturers use social media to help build hype for their projects and are more open to showing the inner-workings of the manufacturing facilities. Zamperla and Mack are especially good with this. I wonder if Zamperla chose the 3-across design for the trains so Gerstlauer wouldn't get their panties in a bunch.
I think this looks like a very solid coaster, and it will probably the one who breaks the trend of Zamperla only making mediocre coasters. Maybe parks who have a good relationship with Zamperla will start to buy this type of coaster now, instead of the Volare.
No. 1 Water Park guy! The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)
