As of today, there are only two more bents to stand at the high part of the lift. Then it's all mechanical, electrical and track work.

I personally think that this coaster looks like GCI's best since Ozark Wildcat, it looks like it has a great layout that allows for more airtime than thunderhead or the one at Beech Bend. To bad it is so far away..........

Visually, that is one of the most beautiful coasters I've ever seen. Layout wise... plenty of low twistyness, the potential for sustained air on a GCI... I vote awesome. *sigh* It's a shame it's so far away.
