judging by that arrowlike turn into the first drop, I would assume he's handsculpting.

^Where are you seeing an arrow transition? It looks similar/on par with transitions into Kraken's or Dragon Khan's drops.

The angle messes up the view some, so the hill isn't that misshapen as it looks. But I see where you're going at.

Yeah I think it is, there's no way one angle can distort it that much.

Other than the hill though, the ride looks really nice.

Oh, and hi Kev.

So do you think that the hill should be wider or just shaped more evenly?

EDIT: Hey!^
