ooOh I like <3 They mange to get a lot into the small amount of space. How much does this thing cost and do you think Gerstlauer will sell this model to other small parks? Seems like a great way for small parks to get some inversions.

I think my engineering classes have ruined me, I am just sitting here looking at that last picture and thinking about all of the different design decisions that had to go into making just that one little support. That is crazy!

Wow. That brake run's going to be pretty sweet hanging over the edge of the pier! Definitely one interesting little Eurofighter...

Definitely the strangest contraption of the year. Looks fantastic.

One of the more interesting coasters this year!
I personally think it looks very good!

I've never been to one of those 'piers' i would love to try it though.

I still can't get over how much I love the loop into the brake run. It's so random! <3

The park probably wanted a 100 ft tall ride on limited budget and space. Hence the short track length and the random ending to the ride. They were just looking for the best bang for their buck - after all nothing attracts people to the pier better than seeing a giant roller coaster looming over the water

New photo from their Facebook.
I will say that i am a bit concerned about that transition to the right in the picture.
I wouldn't be concerned at all, it'll be absolutely fine. It's not a Kumbak or Soquet ;)

Well, I must say I'm glad to see them build a new EF with the normal tower, they look so much better.

Wow, that thing is COMPACT. Those three elements (particularly that loop) look like they'll be fun.
