Gotta gie the park props for building this thing so quickly! Colors seem to look different in every photo.

Me too, matthew! I was expecting this ride to be a bit larger, however.

Actually looks like a lot of fun now they've put it all together - there is a bunch of interactions and no doubt the airtime launch will improve the typically lackluster Mack launch.

It looks like a flat spot at the top of the tophat from some angles.

Is the Jo-jo roll covered or just the beginning of the launch?
What are these for?

I’m going for ACE Winter Warm-Up this year at Carowinds. Is anyone else coming?

I hope they test it at Winter Warm Up, but there’s an 80% chance of rain in Charlotte around the time of our construction tour sooo...
