Park President Neal Thurman and Director of Maintenance and Construction Tim Dofflow walked us around the construction site. And no, there's no set opening date yet. In fact, there's quite a bit of work to be done, as you can see from our tour. Dofflow did insist that the ride would be open "this year," however.
The Premier Rides coaster will take riders on two laps around the Mobius-style circuit, with a "pit stop" in the station between laps. Top speed will be between 53-57 mph, but the low-to-the-ground design (the ride tops at just 67 feet) will help amplify the feeling of speed.
West Coast Customs is designing the body work on the trains, which otherwise will be the same as on Premier's Full Throttle, except that West Coast Racers will add "soft collars" to the restraint system.Tweet
