Looks like a fun ride. It doesn't look like anything particularly travel-worthy or too different from what we've seen before, but it should be a great fit for the park and very popular with the local audience. Now if only someone could take the first half of this and combine it with the second half of Valravn.
Coaster Count: 464 (94 wood, 375 steel); Park Count: 92
Top 5 Wood: El Toro, Voyage, Lightning Rod, Boulder Dash, Phoenix
Top 5 Steel: Fury 325, Superman the Ride, Steel Vengeance, X2, Millennium Force

If you kept the old B&M OTSRs on that thing, it could be a really awesome ride

Parts of it look like fat Rougarou at this point lol, and that kink in the prelift dip really bothers me.

It's like they wanted an extra 6 feet to dig down but weren't allowed.

It's on Valravn too! You can kind of feel it on ride but it's not that noticeable. I really wonder the reason for doing this.

Yeah they did this on Valravn too... it kind of bugs me lol. Did they let Golden Horse design the pre-lift on these two divers? :lol:

Well the wack prelift is made to support itself, as explained on COASTERFORCE FORUMS’ thread. They also go over it during one of Cedar Point’s Valravn Minutes propaganda.
1. Voyage 2. Intimidator 305 3. Maverick 4. Skyrush 5. Mindbender (Galaxyland) 6. Fury 325 7. Kumba 8. Goliath (Six Flags Over Georgia) 9. The Beast 10. Phoenix

I mean, I can see a support in the picture, so that's obviously not true :lol:

How exactly would making the track shaping odd make the section self supporting? I'd understand if we were talking about an arch in the track, but it's in a dip.

Have y'all not seen Raptor's prelift? Odd shaping is common with those wee turns.

It's a small-radius turn close to the ground with very wide trains. Chances are there's a thin margin of acceptable banking to maintain clearance between riders, the ground, and the row in front.
Boulder Dash was the only good roller coaster.

The only reason the helix exists is so they could make it 210 feet longer than Valravn, lol. Also I dont see how you could do a splashdown given the area after the second drop.

And the second half serves the same purpose as GateKeeper's second half. It's just extra block activity so the next train can head out of the station that much earlier.
