Oh man, you guys...this thing looks like it...rocks
ok I get it I'll leave!
This coaster looks stunning from all angles! And as it's RMC, I'm sure that it will ride stunningly as well!
Why are these things so fast!
Here's another angle
I'm sorry but those trains are ing atrocious looking. Color scheme is better than WW, but that is ugly as .

The airgates confirm that it won't be a continuous loading station.
I love the way the whole area looks! They did a great job tying everything together.
I agree! Considering Cedar Fair apparently "don't do theming", I think this looks fantastic! Well done guys!
Catwalk's going in!
How come it's got wooden catwalks when this is a steel coaster?
Yeah Wonder Woman has steel catwalks so this almost had to be a requested thing. Also doesn’t have them on the first turn like this does.
I feel it would look lovely but maybe not with that track color.
Wonder Woman has wooden railings on the brake run catwalks, but I've no idea why CGA would extend the catwalks to the first drop. I actually think WW might be better.
I suppose so! Gives it that sort of western/road trip type feel they're clearly going for.
Thanks, @ATI! Was not aware it had wooden brake catwalks. My inference would be that it’s cheaper for them to buy stock wood and turn it into decking than to fabricate catwalks for that part, but for the more complex lift catwalks it’s more efficient to just fabricate them, then make them wood if the park requests it. Could be several build factors though. Time, material availability, building codes, etc. I’d love to know for sure though!
Makes sense to me, if they’re going to stall anywhere it’s on that first turn.
Gorgeous photo of testing.
Zooming in on the webcam, you can also get a good glimpse of the trains on the transfer. I must say, the color combo is really striking.
More testing footage. Just like Wonder Woman, this thing is lit.
