Thunderbird Construction Pics...Beautiful!

Came across this on another board. Pic 3 of 3 is the view of the ride as you drive into the park.

Not a bad first impression, is it?

The Third picture looks like a model coaster! Nice. Looks smooth.

Coasterpunk. What do you mean "not bad for your first design"?

Thunderbird is Jeffs first coaster design with no input from Mike Boodley. Same with the Kentucky Rumbler. The other GCII coasters were either all Mike or both Jeff and Mike.

Awesome photos!

Congratulations, Jeff (and Dan), job VERY WELL done... :)

GCI is putting parks on the map!

Dollywood already had a park, so to speak, but Celebration City, Beech Bend, Powerpark, these are places that are taking a VERY small risk with a HUGE upside...financially, as well as diversifying park offerings, AND giving great rides, there's NO better option for these parks.

The coaster-lover (enthusiast) in me AND the business person in me LOVES these decisions...low-maintenance wooden coasters that ride *fantastic*...

And, as I've said before, it's impossible to take a bad picture of a GCI coaster...picture #3 is awesome... :)

We need GCII coaster up around here in NW Pennsylvania.

Has there ever been a non-photogenic GCII coaster?

Nope. :)

Congrats, Jeff.
