For those in our Orlando-centric audience who have not been following the coaster industry, what Rocky Mountain Construction is doing these days is every bit as exciting and revolutionary as what has been happening in Orlando and SoCal. If you have not seen the POV for this new creation, please watch. It is unbelievably cool. To me, this coaster is the kind of ride that makes a park a vacation destination, much like Outlaw Run did for Silver Dollar City last year.
I'm about 5 hours from this park, and would love to sneak a trip in this season to check this out. In all likelihood, I won't. But if I can find the time and money, it'd be enticing.
Thanks for the write-up, Anthony. Really cool article and ride!
I actually went there on Friday and Saturday as well for Coasters After Dark and just a regular day at Great America. The lines were over two hours both days and the coaster broke down for two hours on Saturday. My theory is that the wheels, which are made of polyethelene are not standing up as well as expected.
I'm kind of amazed that this coaster does not have over the shoulder restraints!
