^ Our biggest question about that 360 barrel roll... it's been solved! Thanks so much! :D
- I have to prove that NL1 is still alive! Pack-a-punch tracks are, I personally feel, a LOT of fun! :)
- IMO, the ride stats are not everything in most cases! Never rely on the big numbers showing how tall, fast or long!

Here's a neat render that shows the force distribution on the ride and also the full layout.

The train still looks pretty eh but it's way less bad than I was envisioning it.

Looks like quite a slow rotation. Might be some hangtime in that roll as well.

Wow the layout makes me think of... big pieces of cheesecake! White supports and a REALLY dark brown track! What "yummy" elements! Love the look of Mine Blower - I'll be blown away! xD

Take a look at the transfer switch here. Looks like GG have switched to trackless storage.

You can see the first tunnel taking shape with supports after the big overbanked turn into the twisted hill. I'm predicting a July 4th weekend opening for this ride.

Is it just me or does it look like you'd enter the roll with a short pop of airtime?

The park has confirmed that the ride will open on June 23rd! That's very close considering not all the running rails are complete and the ride has yet to complete a test run.

^ Nice! Is that wooden catwalk beside the top of the roll permanent?

This looks way way more epic than the announcement videos and pics led me to believe. It will probably be a fantastic little coaster.

I've just got two simple thoughts. Transitions are much quicker than I imagine! The train is much faster than I (personally) guess! Looks like MB's going to be a "true" crowd puller!

I say thanks for creating one epic woodie! 8-)
