Photos from today, y'all
me. I didn't know it was themed to Road Runner. BEEP BEEP.
And.... Photos from tonight.
Kinda overlooked this coaster after its announcement. The drop looks pretty steep for a "traditional" woodie! Glad to see Gravity Group getting more projects in America.
Nice to see GG not losing their touch and still creating great woodies. Too bad they're falling the way of GCI with the rise of RMC.
I can see why you would think that with all the coverage RMC get but GCI are opening more coasters in 2017 than they've ever opened in a single year before and GG are remaining pretty steady at three coasters a year. GCI and GG are certainly not falling by the wayside with RMC they've just been focusing on markets outside the USA for a while now. I suppose GCI had a couple of quiet years in 14 and 15 but their output has never been huge.
No, if the projects are outside of America, they don't exist, duh.
Trying my best not to Fanboy over this but everytime I visit the ride truly looks more and more fantastic. Some of the banking in the turns look so awesome and the peaks on some of the hills seem so abrupt, it's bound to have some delightful air time. Anyways, some photos from today.
I tend to underestimate GG woodies, haven ridden none. How do they ride compared to GCIs? I wonder about the airtime in particular, if it gives you good pops of G- or not.
The layout looks pretty agressive and relentless however. I am not the biggest fan of inversions on "traditional" woodies but will give them a try!
This is going to be so amazing omg
Gravity Groups are amazing, much better than GCIs and they have a tonne of airtime.
Also the inversions are great, don't be too harsh on them before you've done them, they're great!
You must be right then I really hope I can enjoy one of the new GG woodies soon!
Couple of pictures from Reddit:
Looking good! The white supports and bright brown wood is a great combo against the vibrant Florida sky imo.
The first drop is going to be so fab.
Gravity Group did this lil +/- G infographic for the ride!
That double down into the cut through the structure is going to be quite fun. I can't imagine this ride not being the best 2017 ride opening in North America in the eyes of enthusiasts.
If my eyes aren't deceiving me, that looks like 11 airtime moments! Really looking forward to this!

Man, I'd love it if more manufacturers produced images like that. Really pleases my inner nerd*.
*Which is mostly my outer nerd too, to be fair.
