Gone up pretty fast already. Next to go up is the fading colour tophat.

Add another 100 ft. in height and they might have had something worthwhile. Not to criticize but it just seems very......blah?

Maybe if you're strapped to a chair and flung 205 feet in the air on a daily basis.

Well this coaster will be flying around at blazing speed. And it is supposed to be a minature Kingda Ka isn't it? ;)

Does that mean it'll only break down in small chunks?

Funny, seems to me the smaller B&M and Intamin coasters are much more intense than the larger. I always here from those who've ridden both that they prefer Xcelerator's launch over Dragster. And how many times do we here how more forceful Batman The Ride clones are to Alpie or Silver Bullet and others.

Just how I see it...YMMV.

Yest, I'd take that launch and top hat on Xcel any day over TTD (sorry Tina). Don't get me wrong, I liked TTD, but Xcel was far more intense.

Well, atleast brackets for installing fins, if they were so inclined. They don't appear to be attached at this point.

Well I'm sure they will install brake fins going up the hill because the train is going about 65-70mph-ish right about there and there sin't much room after the hill for a decent sized brake run.

Dont think there will be any problems with this ride opening on time!!!

Another 2 weeks and the steel will all be up. Good advertising as all the haloween visitors will see it.

Should (fingers crossed) mean all the kinks and problems will be ironed out to ensure minimal down time when it opens in march.
