I looked at the GCI website and they updated it, it looks like a great site , and not so static it has no flash, and its shows photos of all there coasters and 3d renderings of thte thunderhead layout. This ride looks incredible, even though the renderings don't show the real bankings of the ride. I can't wait to ride this when it opens next spring.
ThunderHead looks really cool, I hope I get to ride it next year....still trying to round out my collection of GCII's, so eventually I'll have to get back to NorCal...
bill, wondering how 66.3 ft/sec and 44.16 ft/sec BOTH work out to 45.2 mph....must be the new math...;) ------------------ "The robot mafia is running numbers?" "Well, nothing fancy, mostly just ones and zeroes"...;)
SilverStar said: It's probably just the imaging, but it looks like 0 banking! ouch!
Trust me these images ar eno way gonna give justice to the real thing when I gets done. That is what I expericed with the Ozark Wildcat. The program they used doesn't display the banking very well so there's gonna be lots of 90* twists and turns.
As for the flyover element I guess they got that idea from the Windstorm coaster at Celebration City. I love how when I'm getting on the Thunderbolt at CC, the other train flys over my head at 35 MPH. I want to go to Dollywood next spring so badly.
