Sounds more like a Holiday World waterslide.

I noticed that also. Looks like a highly unexpected, and therefore cool, place to stick a launch.

I'm thinking, upon more views, it might just be a "camera trick" so to speak. They just sped up the sim to make it fit in a time slot, or to make it look more intense. They listed 3 launches (30 MPH, 60 MPH and 40 MPH), and its clear where those are located (out of station, before tower element, before parabola hill) so I think it might just be a little slick editing. Now, if I'm wrong and that 40 MPH launch is at the top of the big drop and that speeds the coaster for the rest of the ride, then it will be a one-of-a-kind element and make that drop an air-time monster.


Riding is freedom.

That's too bad. It would've been a cool little surprise bonus. But this ride already looks fantastic even without it.

I used to work with an African american (Or Black depending on your PC choice) lady named Chaquita...

One day in a fit of rage I said "Shut up Banana lady!"... We never saw eye to eye again...

So is it just a matter of time before Williamsburg announces a wolf-themed one of these, then? Either that, or an Auto-bahn theme for Germany is my guess.

Maybe they can still bay tribute to Big Bad Wolf and combine the names. I've already got the signage:

LOL Josh.

I just had a thought... Maybe BBW2 will be a launched invert (Volcano), but have a terrain-hugging layout like Cheetah Hunt. Then we'll get to hear Gator whine that Williamsburg got the vastly superior ride once again. :)

What's to get? It's two steps up from Oblivion, but that ain't saying much.
