They're being developed right now. I can't wait to see them.
It's really hard to photograph because it's out in the middle of nowhere.

Thanks - I hope to see more pictures as the season goes on. I don't think I will be able to make it out to ride NITRO this year. RAGING BULL will have to do.

Hey, Raging Bull is no shabby coaster. Count your blessings! :)

Hey BMCOASTER- I think there's somthing wrong with your computer, because every time you type in the name of a coaster, it seems to all be capatalized when it's posted. ;)

I know, I know, more un-needed "humor"...

How much air do you get on raging bull? Or is it more like lateral G's?

The article says someone puked already, but changed seats to keep riding. How embarassing.

Mine are being developed. I will post a link on my site to where you can view them. I got quite a few..some from the top of the ferris wheel..some on the ground. I also got a pic of madusa while I was IN THE FRONT car..while I was on Batman..on skull mountain..I am becoming pretty good at timing my pics while riding!

If you sit in the back seats of Raging Bull, you get tons of air. The coaster may look more like a lateral G ride, but it does offer plenty of air. It's one heck of an amazing ride!!!

Oh man oh man, that photo gives me goosebumps.;)

How have the lines been on Nitro so far? How is it's capacity? I will be there in mid/late August, probably on a weekday. How do you think the lines will be on it then?

The lines have been pretty short but,we can seriously blame that on the crummy weather.The park owners must be seriously dissapointed with the turnouts due to this.As for capacity,there are 9 rows per train and four seats wide so,36 people a train and three trains running this summer should make the line move fast but,if your not a regular of this park you can't even begin to imagine the crowds this park has.It is a very good idea to go on a weekday and especially when it's going to be cloudy with showers possible.Even during the weekdays if it is really nice out i am guessing the line could end up being an hour wait.We have major tourism and,lot's of people from NY take bus trips there during the week because the rates are cheaper.Good luck and i hope you enjoy your trip here in August.Be sure and mark it on the cb calendar so maybe me and my husband could meet up with you and help you get around the park quicker.

How big is the queue house. If it compares to Raging Bull the line moves extremely fast with 3 trains.

Gotta love the Six Flags steel box theme. Not.

I am sad to say very small but,all the huge six flags critics probably aren't going to be suprised.I think it was the first time i actually saw a queue within a queue house.They have i'd say about a 9 ft queue for the front seat.For the rest of the lines,i'd say about a 3 maybe 3 1/2 ft. gap between the end of the seat entrances and the back wall so,the Train house isn't going to smell to pretty in the summer when everyone is sweating their rear ends off!I'll put it this way to..it was the first time i saw ride ops directing traffic coming into the train house!

Wow, that has to be the ugliest station I have ever seen!!! :) Yuck yuck yuck! I don't care much for theming, but that thing is hideous! Perhaps they are at least going to paint it or something???

I'd have to agree with you Mdomnis, me being an avid Great Adventure enthusiast and all. But still I think the gray weather made the metallic motif look worse!
