CoasterGallery.com has added pictures of the Mall of America's newest coaster, Timberland Twister. With pictures taken over several days, you can follow the rapid progress as they build this spinning coaster.
So far in 2004, CoasterGallery has added pictures from Camp Snoopy, SeaWorld Orlando, Old Town, Walt Disney World and DelGrosso's Amusement Park.
Additional photos can be found at Midwest Information Guide.
If it had outward-facing cars a la Maurer-Sohne, it would be the wildest mouse ever, bar none. It will still have plenty of fanboys.
Nice thing about it: From the Mystery Mine Ride/the other side of the park, you'd hardly know it was there.
At $4 million a pop, I'd hope to see these at the sister (cousin?) parks in a hurry. Come ride it immediately before they CF it up with the trims.
Also the pics on Coastergallery are from about a week or so ago, but the ones on MiG are from this past weekend and show just how little is left to be constructed of the track itself.
Nuts to that! This coaster definitely looks awesome, but I maintain that Chessington's Maurer Sohne mouse will kill all others.
Either way though, I should be riding WoF's this year, and I won't get to England til 2006 so no worries. I really do like the design of Timberland Twister -- my fav part would have to be the two helices right after one another. That part looks pretty killer!
Nice pics, btw, both of you guys. I can't believe how fast they threw that thing up!
Okay that was lame, even for me!
Joe, tries way too hard :)
I don't know where Drew got that information, he obviously hasn't been to the mall tonight.
He coulda been there, casually walked by and just missed a segment or two like any of thousands of other folks who walk by every day. It's really not that big of a deal.
When they're all done, it will open, people will line up to ride it and none of this is gonna matter. Wow.
