This will definaly improve the wolf bobs. Although there is much more to be done at this park. I'll ride it next season...I bet it'll be much better than before.

As far as the Villain goes, I remember thinking while riding this past summer that it could really do without that trick-track section of track, it feels too gimmicky, forced and really out of pace with the rest of the ride. It was really in bad shape. There were definately other parts of the track as well that left me and my wife looking at each other during the ride with a WTF was that expression after a few of the transitions. I used to love this ride, but now it definately needs some TLC.
OTOH I think RWB is great and is getting even better.

RWB was the best ever this year. I am glad to hear it's getting the final tender loving care it deserves.

I like the trick track. It's subtle little details that help to distinguish rides and something that you don't see too much of anymore. But it has been in horrible shape lately.

I liked the trick track as well. Now, if they'd only do something about that awful Big Dipper. Until some re-tracking is done to that one, I'll skip it.

Awfull Big Dipper!? Sit in the front car next time, good times there.
Honestly, I would have rather seem them remove RWB and take care of their two other woodies than spend the money they have on it.

just add a miniature airtime pop where the 1/2 trick-track is... ;)
ouch... it would be just like the end of the ride going into the brakerun in the backseat.... only worse...

That section of track is really short for a hill, just a nice straight track will do.
If the trick track could keep in good shape I think it would be cool, but its always been so violent that its better removed than kept.

I rode RWB last summer, it felt okay to me. I remember a couple of years ago, when only half the ride was retracked, when from smooth to rough with a quickness.

How about a quick inline zero-g instead of the trick track? ;)

I hate trick tracks. The one on Shivering Timbers just ruins the ride. All the great airtime, and then the painful jolts....fun.

Just out of curiosity, are there any steel coasters with a trick track?

Dannerman: yes, but they have a differant name.
Vekoma calls them track connections. :)
