This is going to be the least anticipated RMC ever, which is ****ing hilarious as it will more than likely be a top ten coaster.

RMC, will you please stop - I can't keep adding these parks to my 'must visit' list ha.

I can't wait to see this. So excited for another tiny RMC, Storm Chaser was wonderful.

RMC, can you please come to Europe a bit more? ;)

I think a good indication is this thread's 2 pages versus Mean Streak's 27. It'll be incredible no dount, but all the other incredible things coming in 2018 will more than likely overshadow this. Kinda like what happened to SFDK's Joker

It obviously won't get anywhere near as much attention as CP but so far we have only seen a truck and Mean Streak has loads of track going in, bit different.

Hey at least KD will most likely be the first Cedar Fair park with an RMC considering KD opens sooner than CP. That's something at least...

The "hurler" layout is ripe for RMC conversions. The triple out and back has always struck me as an awkward design - meant to be compact but ultimately full of lots of meandering airtime hills and jerky transitions. This creates a lot of unique elements for RMC to play with however, such as Medusa Steel/Storm Chaser inverting first drops.

Plus it will be the first RMC made from a very low to the ground coaster.

Does Twisted Twins/Storm Chaster not count?

EDIT: Okay, so Hurler is about 15ft shorter than I thought it was (I was guessing it was around 100ft), which would make this by far the smallest RMC - assuming they don't bulk the lift hill up a bit. Still, we have seen three RMCs in the 100ft and under mark, I suppose.

Twisted Twins had a lot of higher up hills after the drop. Hurler's tallest hill after the first drop is probably only about 20 feet if even that.
And I don't see why they wouldn't make the lift hill at least a little taller. It has some really wide supports so they can easily make it taller.

Ahh, gotcha. In which case, yes you're right! I wonder how many new hills they will build.

Since Storm Chaser has been my favorite Iron Horse thus far - bring it on!

It's strange to see a thread with such a depressing title have so many excited, happy posts in it.
