Wow! Batwing gets really close to the ground. That is going to be SCARY!

All the great weather was a benefit for the construction crews. They were even working on a Sunday when I was there. I'm hoping they can get it open before May 26, the targeted opening date, but if it means that they will thouroughly test it for a month then I can wait. The gp doesn't know what to think of this coaster yet. I've overheard people trying to figure out the layout like it's a sitdown coaster and they get confused.

Batwing looks awesome! I wish I can go there this summer.

But then, Batwing is just a yellow X-Flight.

Actually, the differences between Stealth and Batwing are:

* Split loading stations vs. single station

* 90-degree 1st turn vs. 45-degree turn

* Cars reclining on lift vs. cars reclining in station

* 125' maximum height vs. 112' height

* Diving curve before last double inversions vs. half-Corkscrew

* Double Heartline Spin vs. Double Corkscrew

* Flying Helix vs. cross over station

* Straight Half-Roll vs. Brake Run
