    This looks much better then Wonder Woman. I like the color pallet on here much better. The trains who knows.

    Agree it looks miles better than WWGLC thanks to scenery and a more harmonious colour scheme, but I actually find Wonder Woman's flashy colours fitting for the unsubtle brutal airtime (I presume) of the ride. That way both the airtime and the colours stand out.

    Looks too obviously fake for my liking.

    I'm curious to see how fast this one runs compared to the one in Texas - I'm still struggling to believe that's their designed speed.

    Is that brake run catwalk wooden, out of interest? I can't tell from the photo; it sort of looks it, but it would be slightly bizarre to have a wooden catwalk on a steel roller coaster.

    Train 3 isn't there yet. ;)

    Does anyone know if this will have the continuously moving station like WWGLC does?

    According to Screamscape it doesn't, but I'm not too sure.

    It was confirmed by the company doing the control systems that Railblazer won’t have a moving station. They also mentioned that in theory neither method is faster than the other. In practice, the moving platform should result in faster dispatches.

    It was a while back, but I heard the park hadn't decided if they wanted a moving station, but that the control systems company (IOE) will have the option if they decide to do it

    Garden update: It's a new day! After a worrisome winter, it looks like they gave some new ground cover to the garden to let it refresh for spring. Glad they're protecting it from all the construction too. Really excited to see if they put in any flowers in May.

    Design inspiration for the front of those trains seem to have come from remote control monster trucks that last ten minutes before they fall apart and never work again.
