They've already retracked the first part of Goudurix so it wouldn't surprise me if they went all the way and put new trains on it. I really hope it doesn't get axed because it's one of my favorite layouts.

Let me say like that "butterfly" element is exceptionally beautiful! :)

Yeah I hope Gouldrix stays - then I can plan a visit after this expansion rather than needed to ride it (looks like a painfully fun ride!)

When i was last their with ACE in 2002, I was one of the only people that rode Goudrix multiple times. I loved it! As long as you held your head back against those "wings", your head didn't hit the OTSR. I tried once to hold my head out away from restraint like I do on most looping coasters. Did not work very well! LOL

Vekoma's bommerang at Carowinds has the new trains soft restraints similar to what Intamin did with I305 & Maverick.

^ Yeah, my first time riding, I was like, "what the hell are these for?". It didn't take long to find out! LOL
