I dont see what a giant halfpipe coaster has to do with Avatar, they could of used Rocket Power, if it didnt get cancelled, I am ashamed I know that and I am 15, I should totally leave the room when my sister is watching tv.
the coaster looks really cool! the shaky loop is pretty scary though. I also wonder if they were going to do something about the themeing... I'd feel a little sorry for spongebob if the character became just another token - spongebob stands for something.
Umm... in that second video, there are people in the car. And they don't sound like employees, as they are screaming and putting their arms up... but maybe I'm just too Cedar Fair-ized. Was the ride open to some people?
You can tell the difference between employees and GP?
Back in 2005 I was part of a train of employees that was loaded on to a Raptor train on the lift to prevent it from rolling back after it was accidentally dispatched. We all couldn't help but scream and wave about.
I didn't realize there was that small "up" right after the loop. Cool little nuance, those are the sorts of things that turn good coasters into great coasters. *** Edited 3/3/2008 2:50:45 AM UTC by matt.***
The turnaround is kind of cool - almost like a half-breed between "cutback" (a la Drachen Fire) and overbanked curve. These newer coasters with 2-row cars really explore some cool territory in terms of creative elements. The hill of that 0G roll also looks pretty flat.
