^ Joe is insane. (In the good way.) I expect very good things out of him. And a teaming of him and Alan could create some of the worlds best coasters!

Lighting run is pure amazing. Airtime all over the course, or should I say hairtime. It's very intense and does not let up from the start until,the end

I was thinking that too. In my opinion lightning run kind of feels a bit like outlaw run. Except the fact this is smaller and steel

Really like the look of this ride.
I hated the look of it when it was released, but now that it's finished it looks so much better.

It's the only Chance coaster i actually feel a desire to try, and quite a big one to.
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!)

Glad to see KK up and running again! Lightning Run looks fantastic, and I can't wait to get down to the park and check it out.

Other than that, it's been announced that T2 will open next year, and Twisted Twins will be opened the following year. Out of curiosity, did T2 ever provide an enjoyable ride experience? I assume that the ride will just be getting the new trains from Vekoma with the vest restraints, but do you guys think that could actually save an SLC?

I was fortuned with a visit to preview day this past Saturday. With my limited time I was able to get 2 rides on Lightning Run. If I had three hands I would give this ride 3 thumbs up. Ejector airtime on every hill except for the first two bunny hills. Enjoy the pictures.

^From the reviews they seem like they have more airtime than Millennium Force (good thing!) :)
