Hypersonic starting to look like a coaster

Hypersonic's airtime hill is starting to make the ride look more like a coaster. Check these photos out from the park in the Hypersonic media gallery.

That bunny hop looks like it will dish out some spectacular airtime. I'm still dissapointed this isn't going to PGA.

Didn't PGA just get Stealth?

Is there a computer design of the final layout of Hypersonic? I don't think I have seen it yet. (if one exists)

So you want a coaster in your backyard? I hope you have a big backyard.

In the video on the PKD home page you can see the layout in the background as the car crests the hill.

Coaster looks weak. The hill isn't even verticle like the protocol.

Thanks PT300, that's what I meant! PGA was originally to get Hypersonic, but Paramount cancelled it and sent it to PKD instead. I thought everyone knew this story...

why did Stelth sit there in 1999?

Because it was the prototype, never been built before anywhere else, and it required months of testing before humans could step aboard.

The hill you see on the Hyper sonic is the bunny hop. we will be coasting over that at like 60 mph!

And Stealth -did- require a year of testing

Any clue why PGA cancled the hypersonic in the first place?

Phantom, that is the bunny hop, not the vertical hill.
