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

Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

Looks like quite a slow rotation. Might be some hangtime in that roll as well.
Coastercount: 1127 (I've seen the world and it's horrid contraptions... @.@)

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.

More pictures on Midway Mayhem's Facebook

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-)
