Doesn't seem all that noteworthy to me...at first glance anyway. I can see it being a surprise hit, but it kinda reminds me of Boardwalk Bullet without the compact tight turns.

BTW, everyone remember their bets that the markings for this coaster were for a water pipeline repair? :P

^Hmm, this doesn't remind me at all of Boardwalk Bullet. This thing seems way too spread out, too out-and-back, and less stacked on top of itself. To each his own though--I'm certainly not calling your opinion wrong, I just don't see it. This reminds me more of "mini-Beast" or Boulder Dash.

Looks like I need to make some friends in KC, or come up with some other fail-proof reason to get out there. Particularly at night.

Does anybody think that this project--or other future builds as well--could be cancelled or seriously postponed due to this economy recession we're facing?

I don't know how to precisely describe my thoughts, but that's my shot.
Anyone?
Bueler?
Anyone?

Remember that I said without the compact tight turns. I was referring to the small bunny hills, which Boardwalk Bullet has plenty of, and the fact that they both have the same top speed (51mph) and similar height.[/b]

^Ok. I guess I can kinda see an unfolded and unwound Bullet in it.

Let's just hope it holds up a bit better than I've heard Bullet has in terms of quality rides. It shouldn't have the beachside weather to deal with being all tucked away in the trees and woods back there.
