That's funny. I was just looking at pics at rcdb.com today and wanted to see a POV of it. It looks good.

It's quite an odd ride. That wavy hill part on the 2nd time around on the building is particularly weird.

It looks amazing. I sure wish it was built when I was there.....all I saw was a model :(

Anybody know how to get a direct link to the file so it can be downloaded with DAP? I won't be able to download it if not.

The magic carpet-style ending is great. That would be a great sensation being on the top of the building with those crazy banks happening. That coaster looks cool. It's a bit short though.

What's even funnier is that this link was mentioned right here on CBuzz (yes, right here folks!) three days ago.

Yay for the search feature! lol

Joe, "oh no I'm turning into redman!" ;)

EDIT: After just talking to Chris, he said he didn't see the link in the last thread because of al the "crap" posted to it. Makes you wonder if the regulars truly help the "good conversation" on here or just add their off topic two cents? Things that make ya go hmmmm...

The banked turns look amazing...unlike anything Ive ever been on. The ride is way to short though. RCDB lists it at 3500 ft @80mph that is one fast ride.

Way too short? I think it's a miracle they squeezed that much into such a small space! When I say the concept art, and then looked at the land with my own eyes, I didn't know how they were going to do it :)

Dude, I know what you are saying. Here's how I look at it all. I do try (God knows...) to remain on topic, but you know... once the darn answer is there, the topic is free to drift, as they say. Besides, they always die quickly after that. I agree that sifting through the crap can be annoying (you should see my e-mail in the morning when all the right-coasters send my crap, amongst the other spammers;)), but it's all part of the grand design of conversation. Heck, you don't know me from Adam, but I bet you are interested in who I am, regardless if we ever meet. Same goes from me to you. There are many online that I would absolutely love to meet, and many I will. Here's hoping that sometimes (just sometimes) things are better left unsaid from the regulars....? ;)

I think it looks stupid, but who the hell am I? Very uninspired, and they are taunting us US folks with the "hey we have 5 seconds of trick track, but you don't have King Cobra anymore". LOL

Is it the real yellow or the yellow that they had on the coaster cars??

Thunder Dolphin???? What the hell kind of name is that??? I could imagine some Indians on a reservation naming their coaster that.........

Did you ever stop to think this is another country? Many of our names probably sound stupid to them!

The trick tracky banking looks neat but at that speed it probably just feels like someone rocking you to sleep.

People said the POV of Steel Dragon made it look so slow, and I will tell you it's anything but....... so, I don't judge coasters by POVs.. How can you get a sensation of G's from a POV? Can you tell what X makes you feel like, besides the visual, when you see a POV? I think not.

Just an observation. Am I pissy today? ;)

Yeah, none of the US coasters that I know of are called Jet Coaster. And to think, some people complain about BTR being over-used...

Whatever, Rob.. I think the POV of Steel Dragon is the cat's pajamas!! Of course, I like all POVs of everything... perceived sucky or not. But then again, who the hell am I? ;)

Homey,

Wasn't it you who disliked the POV of a certain Georgia wooden coaster on a certain californians tape?

The Shy One,

I am going to ride a certain Jet Coaster tomorrow in N./S. Carolina. :)

Joe, who says "why NOT Thunder Dolphin?"
