More track has been hung on this amazing coaster as it grows closer to completion. All that remians now is the section from the second hill through the horseshoe turnaround. Check out the latest photos on the official website.
Clean lines everywhere... gotta love the look of that ride! It takes the aesthetics of Nitro and goes one step further without the stupid colors.

Those supports are so cool. I especially like the ones on the "Zweiter Camelback." This sucker's got some pretty huge hills, too. Germany, I envy you! ----------------- http://www.angelfire.com/az3/phototripreport Coming soon!
I love that prehistoric look. Reminds me of the time the Flintstones went to the amusement park and rode the coaster down the dinosaur's back. ----------------- "I'll bet that thing hits 5 Gs going through that loop.....faaar ooouut!"

It's like Nitro... but so... so... much better! I love the colors and the ride looks totally awesome, I only hope the helixes and hills don't get trimmed. ALL brakes on Raging bull are next to useless and take away from what is otherwise a truly kick*** ride. I wish i lived in germany.
Oh yeah... the end brakes are sorta necessary on RB, they... stop you. A good thing :)
Well, I do love the way that Nitro runs through the woods, but I do love the open feeling that this coaster seems to give. I agree with Jeff on the color scheme. I don't have anything against Nitro's colors, but I like the sleekness and the cold feeling of the silvery steel. ------------------ Check out my updated website!
I have a feeling those funny looking supports will be supporting track on the out run. The hill thats already there appears to be on the return run as it looks like it goes up into the trim brake area after the hill that is already built. I also noticed what look like trim brakes in the pictures as was pointed out by someone else. B&M has been puttin them all all of thier rides lately but not using them. In a couple of instances I know of, they are there strictly as a precautionary measure should the computer detect the train running a little too fast. They are off all other times.
