It was a joke...ha


But yeah I agree, the song sucks.

The more I look at the pictures, the more I feel that this coaster will ride in that little groove on the inside of the track. If that's the case, would this coaster ride on just one wheel or a modification of the standard 3 wheel set-up?

Not sure what groove you're talking about, but the trains will likely be very similar to, if not the same as normal wooden coaster trains. The track is of nearly identical gauge and shape as the old wooden track. The bolt strips are in areas that the wheels wouldn't normally travel on without some sort of major malfunction, anyways. If you check out this picture, you'll see that the old steel rails would almost fit inside the area where the bolts currently are.

So it should ride as normal, with the wheels going on the outside rather than the inside

No, the wheels will still be on the inside.

Went out to the park today, and it appears that there's gonna be a double up after the drop on the new version. It looks pretty wicked right now. The pull out from the drop looks like it's gonna kinda tight and forceful, too.

Good god, that double up looks like it's going to be absolutely insane. The speed it's going to be taking that is going to be crazy. If this is just the beginning of the ride, I'm excited to see what happens with the rest of the ride.
