    it doesnt appear to be powered? It looks like it has the worlds smallest chain lift hill. :)

    The company i work for was involved in the construction of this thing. I believe its called Kingwood Stud and isn't too far from where i live. Apparently a major roller coaster company had input in the design but i have no idea if this is true!

    Edit:

    Mack rides assisted with some of the design!

    I doubted the statement 'Rollercoaster Engineers', particularly when they contradicted themselves and started talking about it being designed in Turkey.
    Good to know.

    I think this is themeing, rather than actual trees being used as supports.

    How about a monorail coaster and a double looping side-friction coaster?

    Top one installed the track upside-down and modified the cars to suit obviously.

    Second one looks amazing. Is 2 consecutive loops in that arrangement unique?

    I just love how there are POVs. Even back then, someone thought to put the camera on the train. Just goes to show that this is nothing new... :p

    that 'monorail' is now on my bucket list, just in case I ever discover time travel!

    Apparently there's still something very similar to the 'monorail' cred that travels round France, called Super Railway.
