Those are great pics Dave.

The Daily Herald has an article on the new coaster.

One question I have..is there a "shortcut" from the exit line back into the entry line (ala Raging Bull)? If not, we'll be wasting a lot of time at CBCon walking the entire queue & exit paths...

There is a shortcut - if they let you use it. The fast pass line is connected to the exit and joins right before the station. This allows you to walk down the exit ramp and walk right back up the stairs. I did this at one point and did not even miss a train. It is a very short walk. Problem is, that may not leave enough of a line for the shortcut to be used. Maybe during ERT, but other than that, it will be several years before the line will be that short.

"The first "flying" coaster in the United States was erected at Atlanta-based Six Flags over Georgia. The second such coaster opens this year in New Jersey. The one in Gurnee's amusement park is the third to be built."

ERRRRRRRRRR wrong. Stealth anyone?

dont they consider Stealth the first lay-down coaster or something??? i am not totally sure what they call it, but the reason Superman is considered the first flying coaster is because from the station to the end of the ride you r in a flying position, not lying, like on Stealth.

Since all the railing weren't up there were plenty of short cuts, but I don't think you will have a problem during Cbuzz Con.

They have a very nice long and detailed article on S:UF at the link below. Heck, they even had to go and mention CP in the article. Whats up with that? :)

I loved this coaster, especially at the bottom of the pretzel loop because it takes the breath right out of you!
