This ride will be KI's newest coaster 2014. It will replace SoB. Not really, but this is what I want it to be like. Notice the red, purple, and yellow trains metaphorically symbolizing the colors of the Banshee, now Mantis, at Cedar Point.
This ride is my finished version of Super Giant. It has terrain, forestry, and a smoother track. I also added a third train for capacity reasons. It's not like it needed it because it already had high capacity. I also added two tunnels.
This track layout is almost flawless, and the supports are Gravity Group steel. I changed the supports from grey to black for more erie-ness.
Have fun on this ride, and thanks for downloading the scariest time of your life. This woody packs a 300+ feet, 94 MPH punch. Feel free to eliminate the mist, it's only there for feel.
***Shout out to coasterbuzz because they encouraged me to work on making a forested terrain with hills. Thanks guys!

^Hey Tyler, how about making a video of that and posting it to youtube? It would make it available for everyone to view. I used to go on the Nolimits Exchange site, but haven't in a long time. Available for download is great; instantly viewable on youtube AND available for download is better :)
Edit - I downloaded and rode it. It's a crazy ride! I would make the ending on a much lower grade of land; the speed is very slow for much of the ending. You can lower all the track and ground, and instead of dropping into the brakes at the end, you can go up into them. Then the ride will slow down as you come into the brakes, but you can still have a fast ending.
Intamin has made it popular to drop into final brakes, but it doesn't have to be that way (especially if you're not working with much speed beforehand.)

Thanks for dowloading it. I will make a youtube video tonight. It takes youtube 2 hours to add 5 minutes of video, and then I have to edit. I wanted to go to bed so I'll do it tonight. I also have a page for the coaster download on tpr, so people without nl exchange can download it there.
What I did to make it better was I changed the car colors, added a forest, added tunnels, and added terrain. There was a small spike of red G's in the Super Giant, but right after I found that, it was fixed. This one is 100% green G's. This is what I want KI's new coaster to be.

The pacing was okay, but you need to do a lot to improve your trackwork. I wasn't all that impressed with the layout. If you want to have a top rated wooden coaster, you need some airtime. This felt like just a bigger Beast ride, with the turns and tunnels. I didn't feel like it had enough character on its own. The video was edited pretty nicely.

Good job, Tyler. I like it a lot, especially the first drop.

I don't personally know you, but if I did, we would probably be friends. :)
