I don't know if this ride is going to be great or not, but it sounds like they are just trying to one up Disney. They even call it Rockit in which Disney has two rides that had a similar name like that. One of them is obvious, and that's Rock N Rollercoaster (which is what this ride looks to be competing with Disney), and the other one is Rockit Mountain at Disneyland for Space Mountain.
Well, the rumor is that Disney's Hollywood Studio (MGM) is going to put in a roller coaster, and get rid of the backlot tour sometime after Toy Story Mania opens.
According to the article the loop will be a novelty. In the rendering you can see that the loop is actually a circle-shaped "top-hat". I know its only an artists impression which usually defy gravity...just saying...
...and the rich (in amusements) just KEEP getting richer....
delan, I think (hope?) it might be premature to say this means no new coaster for WWoHP. Either way, since I moved here, the amusement explosion just keeps on keeping on. From Gwazi thru IoA thru Cypress, Everest, RotM, Starliner, Aquatica, now this....I must be doing SOMETHING right...LOL! :)
You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)
I know we shouldn't look to the rendering as truth, but there aren't any nets under the track. A lot of people will be getting spit on or cell phones flying at them. Assuming they do add some netting, it'll end up looking pretty cheesy.
