Basically all that is left is the lift, station platform, and queue.

I went to get my pass on Friday and I saw The
Flying Coaster up close. The corkscrew look SO fun.

There is no corkscrew, just two barrel rolls... It looks awsome, but they still have some of the lift to go. I hope they can beat late may. It went up do quick.

Monto, yes, it is the first one of its type. However, they had built it in Italy I believe before and let "special" people ride it. I believe it is the same exact ride.

From the Six Flags Site:

"Coast to the top of the ride on a signature spiral lift hill and then swoop down to the ground in a series of twists, turns, corkscrews and dips."

Dude, it's SF! There barrel rolls, that SF is calling corkscrews, which are the GP name for them. Check the sig :)

Yeah, I SF did say that, but since the only two inversions the public knows are Loopdi Loop and Corkscrew, it makes sense.

I drove by today and the lift is already up! It looks like they have one, no more than two, pieces of track left! The ride should be complete by the end of the week. I think they will start testing really soon too. They should be able to beat late May.

Rubber Ducky - Yeah, your right. The only "inversions the public knows are the Loopdi Loop and Corkscrew." After studying the pictures alittle more it does look more like a barrel roll.

Yeah, I'm glad it is open, I can't wait to ride this thing. I sure hope they can beat late may.
