FINALLY! A [u]REAL[/u} rollercoaster. I'm sick of those "supercoasters" that lasts a good 15 seconds.

That looks like a TON of fun, and BOY is that a long ride. Can't wait to ride it!

Half the fun of a roller coaster is the wait. This only applies to being in the line with a group of friends, and with a cooler full of water or pop (of course no alcohol, what, with me only being 18 and all ).
