According to this thread on the Google newsgroup rec.roller- coaster the Kemah Boardwalk is receiving a Gravity Group woodie, to open in late Spring 2007. There is a link to the model shown at IAAPA in the first post.
Hopefully this ends up being true. The Houston area needs a roller coaster.
Kemah Boardwalk certainly isn't a "noname" park in the Houston area. If you aren't familiar with Kemah Boardwalk (actually located in the city of Kemah), visit the site at http://www.kemahboardwalk.com
The place is always packed on weekends in the summers as they have a lot of events going on ranging from outdoor movies on a huge inflatable screen to live music to fireworks every Friday in June and July.
If they build something as big as this, it may certainly get Kemah Boardwalk recognized outside of the Houston area.

Ahhh looks awesome! Now I have good reason to go back to Kemah. I wonder if it might be a wooden structure as the model seems to imply, or if it was just easier to build that with wooden model materials.
I survived a Japanese typhoon and the Togo flat ride of death!!!!!!
