It looks OK. The second view, without the front of the train in front of you, certainly made me like it better, but it doesn't appear to be all that astounding. Can't go by a video though. GCI hasn't disappointed yet, and I'm sure they never will.
It doesn't look like it has that much air actually. The Rye-inspired drop is really cool looking, but after that, all the twists and turns don't look like air-producing elements. I hope I'm wrong though.
^My thoughts exactly. The hills aren't very steep either. But I'm still excited for a new GCII--just not as much as I am for The Voyage. :) It does look much more interesting than the other new GCII for 2006. It'll probably blow us all away.
I think it looks and seems similar to Thunderhead (that isn't a compliment) The ride willbe very solid and provide some decent air, but I don't think it will be as great as Ozark Wildcat..... Not saying it will be bad, but I don't forsee it being great.

Video animations seem to have an opposite effect sometimes. Remember the IJ:ST animation how exaggerated it was.
I agree that the Beech Bend animation certainly makes this appear to be a fun coaster without the Thunderhead thrills.
So, hopefully that means it will turn out to be another awesome GCII!
Meh. Another GCI you'll get off of saying 'What the heck just happened!?". I'm not a big laterals fan, I guess, and I don't give a fart how many times a coaster crosses its own structure. It'll be fun, but I'll just be checking it off my list on my way to the Voyage. *** Edited 8/17/2005 3:34:41 AM UTC by ThemeDesigner***

I hate you D....LOL! :)
It was a serious goal, and had the family reunion not interrupted GarlicFest '05, I *wood* have ridden every GCII. Alas, "the good Roar" remains on my hit-list, needed but unridden. And next year, with the PowerPark installation, I fear I may NEVER get to ride every GCII....shame too, cause I *love* their rides...not always the most INTENSE (well, 'cept T-Head), but always an immensely FUN ride...and with Dan's trains, smoother than Janet's backside... ;)
