    Record breaking Gerstlauer coaster coming to the USA

    Someone on Twitter brought up Glenwood Caverns, which makes a decent amount of sense. Challenging terrain and record breaking (highest elevation?).

    Record breaking Gerstlauer coaster coming to the USA

    BGT makes a decent amount of sense (and SWE is no stranger to adding multiple big rides in a row). The challenging terrain could actually be the Serengeti Plain, and keeping the noise to a minimum due to the animals, but that's just me reaching here. It's probably somewhere hilly, AKA Silver...

    IT LOOKS like it's SLOWly getting faster ;)

    It's possible that we're looking at another Bourne Show scenario, where the ride is open for weeks without being officially open. Apparently they're already training ride ops.

    If there wasn't a restraint, that first hill would launch you into outer space. Holy crap.

    Why did they have to buy it from any park? Raptors are cheap and Silverwood hasn't gotten any major additions in years. They could have easily had the money.

    Yeah, it's actually under construction right now. It's just difficult to get photos of it.

    No matter who's making them, new trains on Mystery Mine is awesome news. Heard the current ones suck.

    Apparently the launch and drop will be steel, then back to wooden for the next few elements, then it turns back to steel from the step-up into the quad down, all the way to the end to the ride. No new trains.

    So I'm guessing I-Box for the launch (so it can be faster again), pre-drop, drop, wave turn, quad down, and the final turnaround. Those seem to be the areas with the most forces.

    Busch Gardens Tampa | Iron Gwazi | RMC Gwazi | 2021

    I mean, yeah. Everything gets boring with enough experience. But there's nothing like this down here. Hell, IG has more airtime than the rest of the park combined! Seriously, BGT has almost no airtime (it's the two Shiekra drops and the two highest hills on Cheetah Hunt, and that's pretty much...

    Construction is complete IIRC. They just have to restart testing and complete that before opening the ride.
