Maybe I'll see you next year, Jim.

August 9, 2012 at 3:06 PM · This looks freakin awesome I might have to beg my parents to go to SDC.
August 9, 2012 at 6:28 PM · I think I will be making my first trip to Branson next spring! Interesting to note that Silver Dollar City is billing this coaster as having three inversions (outside banked turn + double barrel roll).
August 10, 2012 at 12:14 AM · With the double barrel roll..... it makes me wonder if that means over the shoulder restraints.
August 10, 2012 at 3:31 AM · Midwest Info Guide has a real nice, behind the scenes construction tour from yesterday's announcement. Check it out here.
August 10, 2012 at 9:40 AM · To Anonymous Poster at this point everyone is saying, "lap bars only."

This coaster is going to be simply amazing.

August 10, 2012 at 5:55 PM · World's only wooden coaster with an inversion? I thought there was one?
August 10, 2012 at 8:12 PM · Nope, there are no other wooden coasters with inversions. Son of Beast is no more.
August 11, 2012 at 1:15 AM · Thanks for the info about the lap bars James..... (I have a log in on here, but just hardly ever bother logging in).

I am a little surprised if it does just get lap bars though.... I mean, that double barrel roll looks like what I use to call a corkscrew on most of the old Arrow style coasters..... and those all always had the over the shoulder restraing.... I've never seen a coaster do a corkscrew effect without one..... (not saying it can't be done.... or will not be....).

It looks like a very unique coaster though. It's definatelly not like how a park opens up say.... a new B & M Hyper..... or a new B & M Flyer.... or whatever..... and you kind of have already seen that coaster for the most part..... it's just got a new layout. This one seems really different..... and I have to say almost just the look of it with the wood and steel and inversions looks dangerous..... like some rich guys experiment in his backyard that I might be afraid to get on..... lol. The wood and steel with the inversions has an intimidating look....It takes the you feel like you are gonna hit your head on a beam effect to a new place!

August 11, 2012 at 10:20 PM · Could this be the next Son of Beast type disaster? When will folks learn inversions and woodies don't mix well.
August 13, 2012 at 9:06 PM · I know california screamin' is considered a steel coaster but isnt also considered a wooden coaster in some ways?
