    Some could call this project a bit of a GaleFarce...

    I find it kind of amusing that the same company that builds massive, technologically complex rides like 4th Dimension coasters and the air-compressed launc coasters can't get this right.

    I am assuming this could take the same route ringracer took after... 4 days of operation?

    I am guessing this is costing S&S-Sansei-Vekoma-whatever a lot of money. Good to see a park not giving up on such a special project.

    Shame it doesn't have lap bars.

    The real question though: did they use the exact track for reconstruction? If not, then it'd be a different cred! ;)

    I don't know whether it's the video, but it still looks kinda rattly to me... probably the video, though.

    Daviddoc and I did this a couple of weeks ago on our trip. It was really smooth and we both loved it, it was a nice surprise! Great use of space!

    Besides the re-tracking, it also looks to have been reprofiled slightly as well. Here are the 2 different POVs, comparing the old with the new.

    Old:-

    New:-

    Yeah, the new one appears to be much smoother.

    Can't wait to see how next year's version turns out!
