    I'll look forward to getting back up there for this. Shame the surround area is such a dive, but it's got a good collection of rides now.

    Here's an overview of the layout and there will be some sort of water feature by the station of the ride:

    Some impressive looking banking to finish the ride with a bang! The Immelmann is nearly complete now as well, pictures to come fairly soon I'm sure.

    Isn't this basically Slinky Dog Dash with some big boy coaster elements?

    Would make a good Dragon Warrior rs.

    They're both made by Mack and have the same track model, but that's just about where the similarities end :p
