Is it me, or did they finish this ride up pretty quickly to be doing test runs already?


Fever I really enjoy the Simpsons. It's just a shame that I am starting to LOOK like Homer.

The natural landscape will be what makes Wild Eagle a step above great America's. IMHO

In all seriousness it looks pretty cool.

True, but the layout of X-Flight looks better IMO. Also X-Flight will have some theming like the water element, the key hole through the control tower and the fly through the hangar.

I just feel that B&M needs to be more creative with their track designs. Look at all their coasters and they are all almost the same design, whts the difference between Medusa, Mantis, or raptor, 3 different coasters with almost the exact layout. When i tell people my favorite floorless is Hydra they think im crazy, but that is the only B&M that doesnt have the same elements as all the others! Intemin doesnt do that with there coasters!

More than 10 posts and still no "that coaster sucks" posts. What has happened to CBuzz?

I am assuming that the eagle screaches are real and not piped in for the ride?

^^No, they were recorded by our colleague and friend, birdhombre. I hear he was well paid.

^ That doesn't even make a dent in what I paid for voice lessons though.

Still no complaints that the first run was too slow? I agree, CBuzz has gone downhill.

Mantis is like Raptor? Other than both of them having a vertical loop, I don't see it.

It is always amazing to me how rides at Dollywood seem to be built with very little issues and problems. Why cant other parks have luck like this? Yes they do have the timber tower issue but in building and getting rides going, they seem to have it together. None of this month after month delay...

The vertical loop on this one seems to be taken at a pretty good clip. It looks like that and the ride's placement are what will separate it from the other three.

Try riding Alpenghiest or montu and tell me they are not just like Raptor or Behemoth and Diamond back arent just like Nitro! Then try riding all 3 superman rides of steel and compare them to MF or maverick which are all different! I just think B&M should try some different designs because they are getting to be boring!

Um. Two of the rides of steel are identical. And similar to many other Intamin megas. Intamin has many similar coasters as well.
