    I don't think they said "world's first" though so it could still be the first launched inverting spinner in the States.

    Besides let's be honest - do you think anyone over here in the States cares about a coaster in Asia? No. No they don't. o_O

    I could see them pulling some of those bs records together to create a sort of "Most Extreme Spinning Coaster" approach similar to what they did with Outlaw Run. Honestly, the "Most Daring Wood Coaster" billboard for Outlaw Run near the park is enticing and had I been GP and seen that I would have wanted to go find out more about it.

    Interested to see the Roman tie in with the theming, how much of that they can market before it stops feeling like the 1880's SDC we all know and love.

    I think it's going to be centered around time travel. Something like "Authentic Tours of Ancient Rome!* See Professor Notaconman for details!"

    *Roman tours may involve cheap props in an attempt to sucker you out of your money. No refunds.

    Paint has appeared on the station. Announcement set for August. Not much has changed with track due to wet weather and a nearby earthquake (25 miles away)

    Hang on, did they actually rivet that sign into the wall, then shove a big huge NAIL into there for authenticity? Kudos SDC!

    No the "nail" is part of the sign, it's not real

    Finally, an update. I was beginning to wonder why you'd gotten so lazy. ;)

    Are you invited to the event?
