Dawg: They did do the official animation for this ride!

Yeah, I figured that this was the official animation, because of something they never had before, people!...not to mention they just happened to post it after the details of the ride was announced. :) I swear that Badnitrus could easily monopolize the animation sector of the amusement industry. I haven't watched the video yet, but I'll post after I do
OH. MY. GOD. Check out the people at the ver beginning swinging their legs. Checl out the Bat Signal going up the lift. Check out the river! Check out the hills in the background. Pretty soon I'm going to half suspect an animation where the camera points north and you can see the faint little outline of downtown Springfield...
That video is amazing but I have to wonder....Is the ride that short? With no midcourse brake it'll be intense but from riding on that POV it seemed very very short. ----------------- It's his turn to feast, when you ride the Son of Beast.
Yes, the ride is that short. It's only 2600ft. long. Still though, even at 2600ft. it looks like a better floorless model than say, Medusa at SFMW which is almost twice that length. I love the compact B&M's like that, and it looks to have some great elements. I absolutely love the dive loop and the turnaround into the camelback. I can't wait to ride this thing!
Oh, and great job on the animation guys! Can't forget about that. ;)
did anybody else notice the bat signal in the sky over the lift hill? at the very top of the lift hill, it appears as if the moon is out during the day, but then you can see the Batman symbol and a shaft of light coming down from it. I liked the people too, but the swinging legs were a little generic. I could see swinging on the lift hill, but once the ride started, I think that people would stop. ----------------- -Bob Knott's Berry Farm Cuba ~South Park "Your proctologist called, he found your head!" ~Jerry "The King" Lawler
Oh my gosh! That was simply amazing! People on the ride! Rides around the park! You guys keep getting better and better. I could keep going on about how great it is, but I won't. Download it. It speaks for itself. (Love the new logo animation!) ----------------- My wishlist for the 2002 season includes 121 different coasters, 92 of which I have not ridden.
