they could've at least made it a full circuit and not a shuttle, but gotta start somewhere. and wouldn't it maintenance be very high say after about 5-10 years?

Now, that coaster just looks incomplete. Add a turnaround, a couple more airtime hills, and another turnaround, and it would be much better.

How could you possibly launch BDash? I don't think the terrain really allows for that lol.
Boulder Dash was the only good roller coaster.

if they were a couple hours away, yes,(voyage is already off my wish list because of the robo strap down trains) but i wouldnt go out of my way for it. what would have to be done to the running gear and track to make the launch work would ruin what i would want from a wooden coaster. the rest would obviously NOT be the same , .considering kennywood and knoebels would cost not much more to see i'd skip them if that happened. .

I'm surte it is, but if i was left with a choice between a kennywood/knoeble's combo or holiday world i wouldn't think twice . it'd be nice to do both , but that may not happen ..

Okay lemme rephrase that,SOBs concept was awesome but it lacked in the execution and someone messed up so it would be awfull if they try other inversions for woodies.
