An exclusive tour of the Zonga construction site was given to selected enthusiasts the morning of Saturday, April 19. Attendees were treated to a 30-minute tour, as well as a 30-minute ERT session. A new update has been posted to SFMW Online that features 35 photos from the event. Included are two shots of the very first test run, which happened to take place during the ACE visit.
Zonga is set for its media preview on Thursday, April 24 and public opening on April 25 at 2:00pm. The ride will then close to the general public again at 8:00pm Friday night while ERT is offered to winners from local radio stations. The ERT will last until 10:00pm. There is also a small media event scheduled for the morning of April 25 for local high school journalists.

It isn't so bad. . .
Once you're used to it
The former killer drop resembles the drop on the OLYMPIA LOOPING now. Its not so steep and deep anymore. I used to ride this coaster more than any other while it was touring in germany and it was by far my favourite. I even rode it with lapbars only in its first season. It was a hell of a ride, and even after the modifications (before it went to the US) it was still the most extreme but enjoyable ride.
The first drop came close to the shock of the EGF drop and I hope that it is not too "smooth" now.

People complain about clones, yet can't even come up with original conversation, which is ten times worse.
