You've obviously have never heard of BORG Assimilator, X-Flight, and Batwing.

See...thats a valid point. On AIR you do spend MORE time on your back then you do in the "Flying Position". I personally have had the privledge to ride AIR, And I didnt much care for the whole on your back experience. I guess its the whole going through inversions on your back deal. BUT...I perfer Tatsu Over AIR because Tatsu IS A Flying Coaster...You are more in the Flying Position, unlike AIR. Just my personal opinion...

I found the time spent on your back on Air to be very minimal and kind of cool. I have not gotten to ride Tatsu, so Air is by far my favorite flyer.

I saw, went and conquered Steel Dragon 2000. It's still crap!

This thread basically discusses wether Air or Tatsu is the best, so my statement applies to those 2 only.

Shame it won't be the 250ft double drops ride... But atleast it's something new. Here's to hoping for planning permission!

Awesome, between this news and BMRX being shipped to England, I only slightly regret not going on the trip!

Do you think scaled down size could equal:

Length: 3510' 6"
Height: 118' 1"
Inversions: 0
Speed: 55.9 mph
Duration: 2:08
Max Vertical Angle: 70 Degrees

???????

That sounds about right for a woodie for me!

It does. But 118 feet tall? I'm thinking seventy feet at the most, with alot of terrain utilization, and like a 100 foot or so first drop into the valley, or maybe a 60 foot or so first drop, then a helix or airtime hill, then a big drop into the valley :airtimer:
