    So...this has grown rather quickly:




    As it says in the title, there's a ton of links to original sources with more photos in the comments.

    Are we reckoning it'll open in March like RCDB is saying?

    Recreation POV looks really nice. I love how after the drop it goes into a simple double up, no funky banking yet.

    The first half looks better than the second. We'll see how it turns out.

    Crash is probably right, but I don't think we can rule it out yet. It's the beginning of February and we don't know how much progress they've made with updating the electrical or reinforcing the structure. They could shoot for a late March opening if they're far enough along - there's plenty of time left.

    What's left of this coaster now? Just the stall?

    Love the views from the Ferris Wheel. I can't wait to see photos of it running from those angles!

    Hot take - this will be the best RMC but, as not many people will travel to ride it, it will be overlooked :emoji_pensive:

    Ha! Always used to be the opposite. It'll be the worst, but 3 of the 4 people who ride it from the West will think it's awesome just because they know it's e x c l u s i v e. And then Gavin will tell us it actually sucks. :p Feels like these days more of the community makes an effort to travel out to Asia. Plenty of people on these forums alone have been to this park!

    I had no idea Japan was doing anything important. Feels like they barely do. Neat. I'm so out of the goddamn loop.

    I do know I along with a few other CFers will be going to Japan in 2020 (well me for damn sure). So I'll be hopping on this beast. I'll tell you all about it. :D

    The ride looks good, but I really wouldn't call it the best RMC. Many of the elements appear drawn out, especially the turns in the 2nd half and I just don't think it lives up to Steel Vengeance.

    Hot Take: You are wrong and this will not be a Top 5 RMC.
