Yeah, I'm thinking I need to figure out how I'm going to get down there for this. It's too epic looking to miss out on.

I'll be going down, you'll be coming up. :-)

I can't wait for this ride.

I want to go out on a limb and say this is going to be the #1 best coaster in the world.

Paul Reuben said at IAAPA that it will be. Along with Thunderbird and Batman at SFFT.

Wow. I'd love to see some offride footage of this beast too. I'm visiting friends in North Carolina early this April- here's to hoping B&M sticks to their track record of getting rides open on schedule!

How Batman - The Ride gets nearly the attention it does is beyond me. ;)

On the actual subject of this ride, I cannot, CANNOT wait to check this out. It strikes me as the first giga-coaster to really deliver that "full" layout. Plenty of variety between some sweet turns and yet maintaining lots of airtime hills. It looks to be an awful lot of fun.

You know what's great? I'll be in Orlando coasters get it up for ten days, then when I get back it's only 4 days till the season pass holder preview nite. This is so amazing looking.

Jeff, he said all three would be the best in the world, or just Fury? lol

Fury has pretty much every single element you could ever want in a giga coaster. Not only that, but its the biggest giga in the world. Gorgeous ride!!!

Needs more trees.

Funny you mention that, they have trees that they took out during demolition that are being readded, but haven't been yet. Plus they're planting trees in the islands in the parking lot.

Paul Reuben says that about EVERY coaster. I have a DVD somewhere that reviews Mind Eraser at Darien Lake. It's just a standard Vekoma SLC... He proclaims it as one of the best coasters in the world. I don't think its even the best Vekoma Hang-n-Bang out there!

Then I guess I'll wait 10 years for the trees to grow in before I ride it. :P

That's the joke I was after. I guess that's becoming such ancient history that people don't recognize it anymore.

Somewhere in there there's a joke about Reuben and the world's oldest profession...

Friday, March 6, 2015 2:21 PM

Paul Reuben is the best coaster commentator ever!

Can't wait to ride this in a few short weeks! Doing an Orlando/Carolina's hybrid trip, which should be a blast. Never been to Carowinds before, but the invert is one I have been wanting to ride for a LONG time. Intimidator looks pretty fun too...

Leviathan is one of my top steel coasters, so I expect Fury to edge it out because of the addition of more of the low, fast turns. The drop, overbank, low-turn bunny hop combo is incredible on Leviathan. It easily beat Millennium Force for me, no question.

Let's predict what CF park will be next to order (or has already ordered) one of these ultra-thrilling, ├╝ber-successful coasters.
I say Kings Island. (please...)

I'd say KI amend Knotts both have to be contenders.
