I just watched that guy's Instagram story and saw the video and I just wanted to pause and offer my condolences to the victims of the magnitude 11 earthquake that evidently hit the Tampa metro area at the time of filming.


LMAO seriously.

The back seat through that barrel roll thingy wtf yo.

Dear lord I think I had a seizure trying to watch that.

Can't wait for some good footage. Unbelievable it's running already.

Obv every ride/company is different, but I'm pretty sure Mine Blower opened 5 days after they sent the first train.

It's all so exciting. What a ride. Can't wait.

:lover: I am loving how quickly they're getting this thing together! I had thought it a bit of a pipe dream that this might be open by April, when I would be able to ride it the first weekend of the month. But more and more it's looking like that's not an unreasonable thought! I love this park, and I'm loving how amazing Iron Gwazi looks! Can't wait to get on it, hopefully in less than a month! :b
