New coaster being planned for Coney Island! Apparently it will be a Zamperla!

Well, my excitement lasted a whole 5 seconds until I realized this wasn't a rebuild of the classic Thunderbolt. Oh well.

I'm more interested in Falcon's Fury at BGT.
A big drop is a good drop.

Hopefully this ride won't have the worst ending ever (looking at you post-MCBR Wicked).

EDIT Wicked is Zierer, I failedz.

If not for the name, I might have more respect for this ride. This seems to be connected to the original in name only, like most straight to DVD animated sequels. But the elevator lift, I don't think I've seen that very often on a roller coaster.
It's like if Kings Island decided to build an El Loco (or anything else that resembles a giant micro K'nex set) in Son of Beast's old spot and call it Son of Beast Reborn.

is it me, or did that video make the ride look like poop, so many jerks and pumps and that head chopper would be a killer on tunnel test..
and i think someone should have smoothed that thing...

and the lift looks cool

^ literally a head chopper, but i think it'll be an alright ride. and the main focus of the animation was the lift, otherwise that wouldn't be so flawless while the rest of the video was crap

That video was a 3D animation company basically guessing physics. They're probably used to making a model of like a building or something.

Try to remember if you don't ride roller coasters a ton and don't constantly look at POV's, that can look pretty acceptable.

Very cool lift though, they're using the ocean view at least.

Woah, this looks awesome! Such a cool lift design, and it looks like it will have some cool elements and some airtime at the end.
