I wasn’t really disappointed with the layout. Most people are used to RMC’s having super tight turn and hil radius which produces that insane ejector airtime they are notorious for, but I think some floater air would be nice for a change.

I'm incredibly bummed that this coaster is ALL THE WAY IN FREAKING JAPAN!!

That just means more traveling I get to do....whenever I get to do it because working/grad school is kicking my entire ass right now :lol: That coaster is not only beautiful (I'm loving the white/blue contrast), but it looks damn fun!!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This looks Fantastic! I like that is is kind of "quirky" for an RMC - lots of little dips and hops along with the large drops and overbanks.

Looks like a ton of fun.

Honestly it looks like a great ride, and Japan isn't used to having RMCs so it's a great first RMC for them. I think the locals will love it. If I go it'll likely be my favorite coaster at Nagashima SpaLand. They do have the most original RMC train design too in my opinion (the Gerstlauer RMC trains don't count). I do hope a few more parks in Japan/Asia install RMCs of some sort in the future. :)
Favourite Coaster: Steel Vengeance
Other Favourites: SkyRush, Storm Chaser, Lightning Run, Magnum XL-200, Voyage, Apollo's Chariot, Phoenix, Outlaw Run, and Storm Runner

Obsessed with S&S Screamin Swings

If Magnum XL-200 dies we riot
