Take a virtual ride on X from the back and front of the train on both sides of the track. Check out the X page on Badnitrus for the video.

LOL......Jeff, you need a beat-down too for that one...I read the first part of your sentence and almost passed out. :)

That's awesome. I can't wait til it is really up and running.

Ummmm.... huh?

What the hell happened? Either my computer is whacked, of which it isn't... just re-did it.... or something is seriously wrong here. All I am getting wherever I click on Badnitrus' site is "This image is being LEECHED from www.coasterbuzz.com" with the site logo between the words.

Maybe it'll work itself out, but as of now, it's messed up and I cannot see anything. Anyone else got this problem?

Everywhere I click, I get that image & words in place of the actual Badnitrus images that should be there.

Unbelievable how I fell for the first half of the sentence!!! I don't even know why, it's not like I'm going there tomorrow or anything. :)

Since my computer is craptacular, I can only see the smaller version on WMP and not the larger on in the Quicktime format. It is really good though, I am impressed how accurate the speed is throughout the ride. It's the next best thing to riding it (wait, no it isn't, watching my three POV's is...:))!

It tastes like burning.

My heart skipped a beat on the first sentence, maybe because I CAN go there tomorrow. In fact I might, with or without X.

BTW, geat job, Keith!

Nothing... NOTHING... can prepare you for... the Fourth Dimension!

DawgByte II if you have Norton AnitVirus scan that will happen, I have to disable mine everytime I go to that site or else I get a bunch of leeched pictures too.

I just downloaded it and played it on my PC here at the office, the reviews from watching it went from, "Oh god, I'd get soooo sick in that" to, "SWEET! Where is that ride at?"

But the one common theme was, "The graphics on that video are incredible!" WTG, Keith!

Goodbye Whizzer, dear friend. You set me rolling many years ago into this fun hobby...

I had the same image is being leeched from Coasterbuzz, on pictures the site had etc, but I think it was becuase I had a firewall running becuase when I dident that dident happen, I got rid of it, it was no good.

I don't know if anyone elese has this problem, but when I right-click on "Save Target As," I am not given the option to save the file to my hard drive. Anyone know why this happens?

How big is the 320x160 vid? My window is only telling me how much d/l'd for some reason instead of a percentage.

Wow. That video really brought back some good memories. By the time I had waited in line to ride X, it was already dark outside, so my experience was somewhat different, but the video, especially the first drop really brought back the memories.

Excellent video.

Though I knew better than to jump at the title, I still reacted with a "yes!" followed by a "no!" and another "yes!" (seeing it on Badnitrus is almost as good as the real thing). I can't believe how much easier it is to see the layout on there. Keith, ANY Arrow ride looks good on your site! Another fine rendering.
