Hey everyone! TPR is at Gyeongju World.... or Kyungju World....which ever name you prefer!

And yes, they are home to a brand new for 2007 B&M Invert!

It's called 'Phaethon' and they tell us it's pronounced 'Python.' So that's easy enough!

Here's a good look at the first 1/2 of the ride. It's a fun layout, although not very intense. It's kind of like the "Silver Bullet of Korea."

Hey everyone! We are here with a Korean talk show host celebrity!

B&M Lift Hill Shot!!! Ooooh!

Everyone get ready for the Zero G!

It's got a lot of funky dives and twists in it. Really reminds me a LOT of Silver Bullet. (But better of course since it's not at Knott's!)

See, here's the ride. Happy now?

Phaethon greets you with a GIANT DEATH MACHINE HORSE!

A lot of the ride's theming looks like it was taken from pictures of Islands of Adventure.

Um, wait...there is no choice!!!!

And just like Silver Bullet, this tight little helix is the best part!

"Hello! My name is Elissa. I've got a little Korean woman growing out of my shoulder."


From here it kind of looks like Paramount's Great America's...I mean, California's Great America's Top Gun...oh wait...I mean...Flight Deck.

The trains look awesome. Fire makes everything sexy!

Yup, it goes Loooooow to the ground!

Kind of reminds me of Posieden's Fury a bit....

Talk show host....scared!!!
