RCDB lists Orochi and Raptor at track lengths about 200' different. I always wondered where the difference comes from.

I wouldn't doubt that they stretched it out the 2nd half just a little bit because Raptor FLIES into the final break.

No, it's because Raptor is shrinking!

They probably measured the inside rail of one and the outside rail of the other. ;)

It looks from the pics like Orochi may have needed to "skirt" pre-exisiting attractions and deal with a little bit more terrain...or maybe it was done just to disrespect Raptor... ;)

Disrespect Raptor? I thought the gulls already had that "covered".

Wouldn't the measurement be taken from the centerline of the track's spine rather than the rail?

It's been a while, but I don't remember any significant differences between Raptor and Orochi. I think gator's got it in it's just a slight localization to deal with terrain at Expoland.
