What? GCI's first out-and-back woodie? :)

What would you call Lightning racer? It's a double out and back to me and a awesomely fun ride with actual airtime :) Not a lot but one real good float after the first turn around.

I am thinking 90 deegrees turn aswell. Never thought SFMM would get a clone, this is one of Six Flags big parks and as i know so far the only one that will get a coaster in 2009.

This one will be unique and fun! Can't wait

More forceless 90 degree banked turns. Yay.

Maybe it will have over-banked turns and arguably go upside down...yay.

Certainly hasn't been a problem in the past.

Scream is a mirrored clone. Batman is a clone. Jinkies.

My last post (John Conner) was me trying to be funny, Moosh. I know where the coaster is going, silly. lol.

Theming the trains would be really cool, even if it does run on a natural wood track. A metal structure would be nice.

Yeah. The "Xerox Express,"sponsord by Kinko's. It would be two identical coasters, staffed with identical twins on each side, and theamed to a cloning lab.

This begs one question that may open Pandora's box: If two coasters are identical, does it count as two credits?

I don't care what it's called or how it's themed. It's a GCI wood coaster at a park that needs a good wood coaster. What's the problem?

Isn't Renegade an out-and-back?

Kinda sorta, but then again Voyage is, too, so I think the meaning has changed a bit in recent years. :) Back in the early days of GCI they had published a concept drawing of a pretty much straight ahead traditional out and back type coaster. I doubt that's what's happening here, though.

How are they going to fit an out & back layout into the same plot of land that Psyclone occupied?

Actually, I just took a peek on Google Earth, and I think there is plenty of room if they expand North past the original Psyclone footprint.

If you want to get technical, can't it be spun that Terminator "terminated" Psyclone?

I can think of a certain steel coaster that should have been made of wood based on theme alone...cough, cough...Maverick anyone?

I think Prowler is about as close to an Out n Back as GCI is going to get.

Back to the name... I don't get with Terminator with wooden coaster but I can see it being called "Termite" and I can connect it with wood! But Terminator? Try again Six Flags.
