If those beautiful pics can't sell a park on a new woodie, I don't know what could ;)

IMHO, Major parks continue to price themselves right out of buisness. You can't continue to build 20 million dollar high maintenence rides and keep the addmission price down and not long after you build them, Folks are looking for the next best thing .

A good designed wooden coaster has proven itself time and again as far as keeping them comming back for more.

No Doubt, Thunderhead, Like Beast and other great woodies will have lines as long as they were when new. 20+ years from now.

My question is, GCI has all of these fabulous twisters, but does anyone else here think that their out n backs, double out n backs, and out n back/twisters look amazing too?

I'd like to see what GCI can do for airtime whores..... (Not to say that no GCI has spots of air)

Rob, It's no secret that i love wood coasters. I believe every park has a place for steel and even a variety of steel. I trully think some of them are Da Bomb as far as first impressions and first several rides. I also see several parks with 2, 3, or even 4 wooden coasters that seem to do every bit as well as THE NEXT BEST THING.

SFGADV can build thier launched top hat and Im happy for them. If they wanted the biggest return on their investment though, They would build a good wooden coaster and maintain it as such.

Thunderhead has a LARGE amount of airtime, so any airtime whore should get their fair dose, on this, GCII's Star Attraction.

Agreed on Thunderhead having a lot of airtime...Shivering Timbers and Avalanche are the only woodies I can think of that I've been on with more. I think Thunderhead even has more air than Cornball.

Thunderhead, has a decnet amount of airtime, but nothing overwhelming. Here is something some might like to ponder on. I'm an airtime whore, But i didn't think that Shivering Timbers or Thunderhead had very good airtime so what type of airtime do I like? :)

Thunderhead has a very large amount of airtime if you sit in the right seat.

Mike took plenty of aerial shots soon after construction was completed. It was kinda overcast that day. May be why they didn't post them. *** Edited 9/25/2004 2:03:01 PM UTC by swampfoxer***

I most definately disagree about Thunderhead having a lot of air. DIdn't really do much for me there.

Now intensity and pacing on the other hand, wOOt!

It had a ton of air when I rode it. Maybe it had something to do with the track being wet and the ride eventually being closed for the rest of the day because it was hitting the breaks too fast.

Must have had an off day, every time I go, it packs a quite a air punch.
