    Depends on how it's treated. There are wooden homes that have been around for hundreds of years.

    And that’s treated lumber too. Watching it burn would be very bad for the environment.

    Please no loop, there is enough loops in the park already.

    I'm very excited to see what Mark Rose does in collaboration with Alan Schilke on this project. I'm going to put my money down right now that this project will be as well received as Steel Vengeance. Expect the unexpected folks.

    Mark Rose is truly a legend for BGT and has drastically helped the park grown for over thirty years. I think he has been with the company since 1986 I believe. Im a little confused as to why he did not talk about Tigris being built at IAPPA and in the construction video but Andrew Schaffer did instead. I think Andrew presents more of the water slides and rides for families, while Mark does the thrill rides and roller coasters. Would not be surprised if Andrew took over Mark's position when he retires in the next decade. But I would love for Mark to do one more ride after Gwazi if he wants to. I know Mark really likes Gwazi a lot, and Im sure he really wants to get it right this time and make into an amazing coaster of what he truly envisioned it to be. Alan and Mark working on a coaster together is a deadly combo though.

    He is a fun guy to talk to, and really enjoys coasters (making them, riding them, talking about them)...He will be truly missed when he retires
