What is a fast track coaster?

I heard that one of the Paramount parks was getting one and I was wondering does anyone know what it is?

I think fast track is just another term for wild mouse.

The term "fast track" is used in the design and construction industry to mean a project whose construction is started before the final designs are complete. They may still be working out the electrical system while the foundations are being poured and track is being layed. They can do this because wiring, hydraulics, and other systems aren't critical to the intial phase of coaster construction. I've worked on several projects where we didn't have the interior partitioning designed until 3 months before projet completeion.

Are you sure it isn't a term for a Mack Wild Mouse?

The projct management answer could be right...result of critical path analysis.

"'cos you know, it's strange! You stand in a library and go "AAAAARRRRGGGHHHH" and everyone just kinda stares at you, but if you do the same thing on a aeroplane everyone joins in!"
