Yay. The only place I've seen these is on RCT. I would love to ride on. BTW, what ever happened to these, why did they dissapear?

That doesn't mean they will be building one soon. In fact, it's been in their catalog for 20 years or so, just never built one.

It has been around for a long time, but, it has suffered the same fate as the Arrow Pipeline, Flyingturns, etc. To my amateur eyes, heir prototype didn't look terribly well done. It did not resemble the old, classic reels. It was more of just a rotating round car placed on a mine train. (Anyone have the link to a pic of it?)

I hope for a ressurection. Look at what has happened to the wild mouse!

By the way, Shockwaveman, welcome to coasterbuzz! We spell out the word "you" here. :)
