"One little spark..."
Don't want no sparks! The thing is about to get RMCeeeed
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.
Its almost guaranteed to have at least oe flip
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
@RollermanDan delivering the goods again.
From Coaster Kings - From California to everywhere else in the world, we're your source for coaster news.
To bring this up, as CK didn't bring it up first..this comes from Bill, who is the a writer for Touring Central Florida.
Either way, yaaas.
Apparently, and take this with a grain of salt, but something big is happening with Gwazi today (12-29-18). My guess is they are starting the tear-down.
The only other RMC conversion I can remember starting this early is Steel Vengeance. This is going to be a real thriller to watch go up.
^They started removing portions of Texas Giant around Nov 17, 2009 (New Texas Giant opened in 2011- Media day was April 21st).
This honestly makes me so happy...I love that BGT is getting the first RMC
So Sonswa scaled the coaster for views. I won't link because he does these things just to get views and has no intention of following any rules of any parks or laws for that matter.
This is the same guy who's been banned from Disney twice, and filmed videos from Discovery Island, DisneyQuest (when it was being torn down), River Country, Wonders of Life, Walt's Plane, SS 18 & 19 at Universal and scaling Big Thunder Mountain. He is the epitome of why we can't have nice things.
All of this being said, his video does give a good look at what the current condition of things are like.
Watching it now. His videos are fascinating but 100% guarantee that he's going to either be arrested or be found dead.
