Wow. I never had a buring desire to visit wisconson, but I think I might now. Oh... baby (drool).

I was under the impression (for some reason) that a large chunk of the ride was underground, but from the latest images it doesn't appear to be that way (regardless, it still looks pretty freaking sweet). Anybody have specifics?

Going back a page, we find the 17-page long (and very controversial) Hades thread.

^True, but I think it was a good idea to start a new one regarding the testing photos because who really wants to read 17 pages?

This Fox is on fire!

Well, if you don't want to read the 17 page thread, there was a new hades testing thread here.

If you think that is impressive, look at the double up on the right that comes right after it, and think of all the speed it will hit it with since it just came out of that turn:

That reminds me of the double up on MegaZeph at SFNO. I just remember how it hurt.

Ejector air can hurt but it sure gets the adrenalin going!

What I find amazing is just how tall the return hill is next to the first drop.

You tell me this thing will make it up that after all those tunnels and turnarounds? This thing will be screaming underground.

From that height, it looks like it could make another couple of underground passes without breaking a sweat.
