A few more pics were added from today:
And my personal favorite:
Cobra roll looks a little off from this angle, but it still looks awesome; and that corkscrew is huge. The twisted bunny hill after the cobra roll is nice too.

That twisted bunny hill looks pretty similar to
the one found on the SROS clones
- that's a good thing.
Of course, that little move has been a long time favorite of RCT players :)

That second one really gives you a better appreciation for the difference in elevation at that end of the layout.

It may be a bit early for these, but I noticed there are no feeder wheels at the base of the lift, only a pinch brake.

What is A JoJo roll? I mean is it a inversion or what?
Monday, November 22, 2004 4:27 PM
It's japanese candy.
It's slang for mugging a teen pop star.
It's a prelift inversion that doesn't exist.
It's all things to all people.
Bow before the Jojo Roll.

It's also similar to the move that makes expedition GeForce and Goliath at SFH great.
Actually, Hydra really looks like it's going to be one of the funnest B&M loopers yet.
They really seem to LEARN! :)
Looks like with Storm Runner etc. the coaster business is about to become more barefaced/bold/boldfaced/brash/cool/fresh/impertinent/impudent/insolent/ribald/sassy/saucy or whatever.

Codis, in the third pic, it's toward the bottom right.
For Halloweekends, maybe they'll call it a pumpkin roll. Being close to Camp Snoopy, maybe they'll call it the Great Pumpkin Roll.
Jojo was a man who thought he was a loner but he knew it couldn't last.

How many kids have no idea what the last line in the above post is/means?
God, I feel old. :)

It's from a Beatles song. I had to sing a medley for my choir class about a year ago, that was part of it.

It's obvious from the pics that it will use the same system as found on Nemesis Inferno. There is a device at the base of the lift that will adjust the chain speed to that of the train - so that it will roll right up the lift without being slowed down first. The trim will only work if the train goes too fast, but I doubt this will happen as the prelift track is shorter than Infernos. Looks great :)

That line sounds familiar, Gonch...maybe if I got back to where I once belonged I could figure it out ;)

It's weird that if 2 of those pictures where taken today then why didn't they show at least one pictures of the camel back before the first corkscrew. Ya it's up I stoped by on Saturday when I was passing thru the area. Also the supports for the corkscrew and one (tall) support support for the helix was up. I'm sure that the final corkscrew was worked on today.

Hmmm...are you dropping hints as to the name of the song? Let's see...got back...got back...OH! Sir Mix-A-Lot!

Thankfully, they didn't name any of the elements Sweet Loretta Modern.

Yay for airtime hills on looping coasters...and here I was thinking that Anton was dead....LONG LIVE Anton! :)

Did they include "Jojo left his home in Tucson, Arizona for some California grass" ? I would pay money to hear some kids your age sing that in choir, I really would.

Wouldn't "Sweet Loretta Martin" be a cool name for the coaster itself?
OK -- how about "Sweet Loretta Martin's Revenge".

I love how every thread about Hydra turns into a jojo roll jokes. Keep it up!
Even though I was there this year, this ride makes me want to go back.
