I know it has only been a little over a week, but the news item said the B&M batman clone was already arriving then. Has anybody seen any track pieces yet?

If there are already pics on the net of the track, they have probably started or finished up with the footers. This is going fast.

He was asking how they got the name, not how it fits into this coaster.

A gambit is techinically, a strategem , typically used in the terms of a chess game. Name doesn't really fit...

Yeah, but its still a cool name none the less. Probably because its ... "different".

Actually, it *kinda* does fit. There was (is) an X-Men character named "Gambit" who, coinicidentally, was (is) from "Cajun Country" aka Louisiana.

Of course Gambit is a Marvel not DC comic character...

yeah and i kinda doubt that the people at thrill valley were anticipating the ride's eventual move to louisiana when they decided to name it Gambit ;)
