Boardwalk Bullet animation

For those of you who haven't been able to enjoy my NoLimits simulation the past couple of months, you can now see an animation of the Boardwalk Bullet:

Longer than I thought it was.... might be worth a stop afterall.
Nice find, at least I hadn't seen it. However, I am not too impressed with this coaster. I am sure it will be fun, but it is certainly a big step down from what TGG has been doing. *** Edited 4/27/2007 9:24:58 PM UTC by RavenTTD***
Wow--not only does it seem long, but it looks fast! Sure, it's no Voyage, but maybe GCI should be watching their backs :)

Of course, though, they still are the only ones with those sweet Millennium Flyers, and if this coaster isn't maintained well, look out! That could get rough relatively quickly.


coastin' since 1985

I'm surprised it's that long after looking at the pictures. Looks like GG has made a sweet, really compact woodie. :)

How can you say it's a step down when you've never been on it? I know the Voyage is pretty amazing and will be hard to beat but you still shouldn't judge a coaster just by an animation or model. This thing looks like it is going to pack a mean punch!
Looks like a GCI in a way. I'm sure it'll be a fun coaster and worth the trip. :)

It's a pet peeve of mine when people tell me that I can't have a negative opinion of a ride before I ride it but all the positive opinons are fine. I have enough coaster riding experience that I can guess a pretty accuate range of how good a coaster will be before I ride it. Maybe you can't.

I see this coaster as being a bigger version of Cornball or New Mexico Rattler. Both very fun and re-rideable coasters.

The nineties in that wood structure should be awesome.

Still not sure why TGG makes no reference to it. I know M&V are building it.

Oh I think it will be fun. I don't think it will have as much air as Cornball. I can just tell already that I won't like it as much as Hades or Voyage.

I have no problem with people judging a ride by drawings/pictures/animations...

To me, this ride has always looked nothing short of FANTASTIC.

I think it's fine to have a reasonable opinion about a coaster before it's built, negative or positive but saying "but it is certainly a big step down from what TGG has been doing" is pretty unfair I think. I mean comparing coasters is going to be inevitable but if you compare every new coaster to Voyage and Hades I think we're always going to know the answer.

It's just like in that Hard Rock thread when people were like "Well, it's no IOA!" I mean... no park is IOA. You gotta judge each ride by it's own pretensions first things first, IMO.

The problem is using "certainty." It won't be certain you've until ridden. Until then it's "probably" or "appears to be."

The animation was awesome, but who picked the sound effects? I mean, really.

Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!
Okay then, it appears to be Twister with more speed and some air and it appears that it will not be on the level of TGG's previous rides, but there is a small chance in Hades that will not be the case. ;)
Hades and Voyage were both STATEMENT coasters. This park has limited space and wanted the best bang they could get for the buck. Im possitive it will be one wild ride.

Waldameer on the otherhand has had their basic design for a dozen years. I suppose that will be less as well.

Dave, Ya know I love to dissagree with ya. You also know I enjoy a ride on a coaster with ya.

It's gonna be a stop if I ever make a Southern tour for me :)

Other than some more large hills, what is this ride missing? Looks way better than Hades to me.
