That's such a random layout, in a good way. Waiting for a dead bird to get stuck in a wheel and strand people in those high dips. 😱

It looks like something I would have come up with screwing around on RCT2 way back when. Only I would have screwed up the layout enough to get a +10 intensity rating and dumped the whole thing.

What an interesting layout! Now to weave the log ride back in. ;)

I'm with Jeff on being surprised that the two very high valleys have no steps or access points, especially when Maxx Force's relatively impossible-to-valley-in first inversion has 3 sets of push wheels on it and a staircase.

I think it's a really interesting and unique take on a looper. I love B&M's but I'm a little bit over the "loop, dive loop, zero-g roll, cobra roll, corkscrew, corkscrew" thing.

I’m not a huge fan of regular B&M loopers of any sort. I like the speed coasters, and i like wing coasters. Dive coasters are ok. I think they have their place, mind you, but with what smaller and up and coming companies are doing now, esp with Ride Centerline designing, I like inversions a lot more.

I’d love to see what Alan Shilke could do with a B&M if they’d give him a chance lol.

I hope this works. It appears to be frozen now, even though it was playable a second ago. It's also on Twitter and FB.

When I try that link in Chrome, a box pops up in the corner saying the video premiers tomorrow.

Looks pretty good to me!


Fever I really enjoy the Simpsons. It's just a shame that I am starting to LOOK like Homer.

It looks very cool... I wish I had some reason to be swinging through Pittsburgh.

There's an Iron Maiden concert August 17th. That's our reason.

I predict that it will be a top ten coaster. It looks exciting and unique. It's seems to have great pacing. I still don't care for the theme, but whatever.

I dunno. The top 2 "loopers" (where loops, as opposed to air, are the point of the ride) are Maverick at 11 and Nemesis at 20. In general, I have much less love for loopers than I do for air/speed machines.

I think inverting that many times might make me queasy.

But you're willing to try it once to see, right? ;)

(I wasn't terribly excited at first, to be honest, basically just hoping this would thin the line for Phantom a bit. Now that it's here and appears to have nice open trains and a few good airtime pops, I'm actually looking forward to riding it.)

That first drop gives me flashbacks of Drachen Fire.
