I never thought that this ride was a roller coaster, but it seems that there it is going to be a roller coaster, Thrillnetwork.com post a rumor to have said that a brownish color track has arrived and that the cars ahve also arrived but still are packaged. Is this true I thought that ride was going to be a triple spin or something, Well anyone able to provide more information on this rumor?
No. It's not a roller coaster. The park has confirmed this much many times.
Even if it were to end up looking like a roller coaster (and I'll bet it doesn't...), it isn't a roller coaster. The park said so. :)
Hmmm...Brown track? Something that looks like coaster track? I have an idea and it has nothing to do with Tomb Raider: The Big Secret. I'm thinking about the big coaster retrofit that might happen this off-season, which may involve doing something just a little strange........
Who's to say it won't be two rides in one! A top spin and a coaster to exit the attraction. Kind of like a get away, so to speak! Hey, it could happen!
I got this from my TR:TR e-mail that everyone got! And I don't see where anywhere in the article it says that YES it a Top Spin in a box! Here is how they put it!
"It is always exciting working to create an attraction that will entertain and thrill our guests. Tomb Raider certainly has the entertainment and thrill aspects, but also the element of surprise. There are four major classifications of the characteristics of an amusement ride. They include the ability to: thrill - like roller coasters and free-fall rides; entertain - like dark rides, train rides, attraction pre-shows; disorient - like the scrambler or the monster; and get wet - like flume rides or river rapid rides; or combinations of all of these. TOMB RAIDER: The Ride has all four!"
Hmmm...sounds like a Top Spin only to me....NOT

Well, Dave mentioned Kennywoods jack rabbit which is being retrofitted for a new magnetic brake system, so i figured it would be a heck of a lot cheaper for PKI to do that to the Beast in spite of unfortunate occurences.
For anyone with questions, Jack Rabbit is only being upgraded, there was no incident which is the reason for a retrofit.
I can see this topic now on the wall of the PKI marketing office...
