I am sure that these coasters will prove successful. I wouldn't go out of my way to make a trip to ride it, but If I was in the park I'd definatly ride it.
Thanks for the pics.

Im going to wait till i see on ride video and read allot of reviews. I think the ride is totally cool in all but before i take the trip up there, I want to make sure it's totally worth my while.

Hey, Hypersonic wasn't worth my while, and I still stopped at the park and waited three hours to ride it. You just never know!

I have a feeling this ride is going to be a capacity nightmare, with only 12 people per train, and it is rumored to have only 4 trains.

Capacity might be an issue. Wonderland hasn't ever been great at cycling thier rides. They do have the best collection of flat rides around, but you'll be in line a long time to ride em on a busy day.
Italian Job is in the very back of the park though, so with any luck, the crowds will be pulled back there, with lines at the front perhaps lighter as a result. Here's hoping!

Actually it's "rumored" to only have *three* trains, Amnesiac!
Time will tell, but I sure hope they can get 1,000 pph. I would love to ride this multiple times per trip because if Mummy is any indication, the coaster will be fun as hell. :)

Looking at those pictures, I also doubt how powerful that second launch will be. My guess is not very. In the pictures you can see that after the launch the tracks swoops down a banked turn, If you look closely you'll notice that after that drop there is a slight turn to the left with very little banking. That should be exciting, especially in the dark tunnel.

Instead of making a new topic... PKIC also has updated pictures of PKI's. It seems that PKi's has progressed a lot real quick. It also seems that its a little further along than PCW's...

Are you sure that's the way the trains will travel? I don't know for sure, but the trains could travel up the banked hill to the launch. I think I remember it something like that in the preview movie, but I'm not sure.

PKI's should be a bit further ahead. They open April 9, and PCW opens almost a month later, on May 1.

Darth Saambe, the cars travel down the stair, turn to the left, and climb up a hil to a brake run/launch track/helicopter attack. http://photos.pkicentral.com/displayimage.php?album=lastup&cat=0&pos=2

PKI has again updated their site, though it seems the pictures are probably almost a week old as there is snow on the ground. I think PKIC's pictures are newer, but hey, its an update....

Did anyone else notice the size of the Jump 2 in the background? That thing is HUGE! We must get one in the states.

Here is all the information on Sledge Hammer, with pictures....that's the Jump 2 you were talking about.

For the millionth time!!! Italian Job at PKI will NOT be opening with the park!!!

I may be wrong here but I believe the first picture you linked isn't the brake area for for the helicopter scene, but rather the last dive at the end of the ride.
That picture was taken around the area where the Flying Eagles once stood. That is the location where the entrance plaza will be. Below is a picture of what I am talking about.

I live in Canada, this is my only park. LOL. It's great to here good news about PCW when they don't get extreme big heavy duty rides come in. This attraction looks to be interesting. I am a bit sceptical though. I'm not sure if this is what PCW needs. Thanx for the pics. Well appreciated

Another set of up to date pics now available on PCW's website.
With thier last website update, they finally have a construction pics page, here's the link:
