Ahhh, the beginning of the PAX invasion. They've got a few coasters going up over the next year or so. I am looking forward to the reviews, this sure looks like a fun ride! (the Anton reference doesn't hurt....)

I agree, it certainly looks fun...I especially like the camelback on that one rendering!

Hey

YAY finnaly pax are getting recognised. The pictures on LST are of Cobra in Kazakstan. Im slightly disapointed they arnt getting a Cobra 2 Model though (http://ft.coasterwire.com/pax/cobra.htm) They have built 2 cobra models already but they are so far away. will be nice to see how they fare since its such a young company. (can't wait to see how their new mega coaster design turns out)

I am liking those huge trains that should provide lots of air time

From what I understand, this coaster was supposed to be the first PAX Scream model, but they dropped that in favor of a more family-oriented model.

Anyhoo, PAX sent those photos to us to show the general layout of the ride, no word yet on color schemes or names. But I still think those trains are very odd looking.

Trains? The track looks pretty wild too (the model that looks solid).

I was looking on their site when somebody mentioned PAX about a month ago, there was a little picture of their train for the shuttle, it had wild looking restraints, lol. It LOOKS like over the shoulder lap bars or something, which would just HAVE to provide air;).......
