That NoLimits representation pumps worse than an aquifer about to collapse.

There's so much talk about what Kings Dominion, Carowinds and maybe Cedar Point will be getting that it's almost hard to believe any other parks are getting new coasters. I'll have to watch the video later when I get a chance and check it out.

Wonder what the capacity (riders/hour) will be?

Sounds exciting. If I'm at my goal weight and waist next year, I might go. It would sure beat going to an expensive park like Disney World.

If I calculated right, ride capacity would be about 660 people/hour? That doesn't sound very high.

From Premier Rides: that's a stunner. I expected it to be a Eurofighter but I'm glad it's not. I was hoping for a B&M invert but it would only have the effect of a Talon, not really touching Raptor. I miss CHILLER so I'll be glad to see this new install. I expect it to have the mounting of the LIMs like on Mummy at least.

"Consult your Courage." hahaha. It looks it has a Powderkeg kind of first hill.

2010 is turing out to be a mini 2000 with all the new coasters it seems. Or maybe its just cause I'm finally getting a hyper closer than 4 hours from me!!! Make that closer than 30 minutes from me!!

NL is good enough for Pittsburgh. Did I hear Transformers sound effects in the video?

The ride sounds cool, and from what I actually SAW in the video looks cool...
but the video didn't show enough...and was one of the worst NL tracks I've ever seen (as in it's ridiculously jerky)

I was wondering the exact same thing. Either Premier has come up with an incredibly efficient way of loading/unloading or this ride is going to have horrendous lines.

is it going to be a moving platform again like on Freeze or a separate load/unload like FoF or a regular station like on Joker's Jinx?

08-13-2009, 09:44 AM
I bet it will be a traditional style station system. But the video really doesn't tell too much.

The video is pretty generic. It does appeal to the general public, they don't know they difference. A lot of my home town friends are very excited about this coaster and can't wait to ride it.

I don't think they will have a ride the name contest, but never know. Should be a fun ride next year. I will be looking forward to it!

I was hoping for a full size track like on Speed, Joker's, Mr. Freeze but I have a feeling I'll be disappointed and it'll be the lighter duty track.

What i find funny about this new ride is that its not even fully built yet, and aready people are complaining about the wait and track.

08-18-2009, 05:36 PM
^I've seen on another site, "Gasp! I might actually have to wait more than 20 minutes for this thing. That's not right! Oh the line is going to be so long!"

You know what I have to say to them? Deal with it. If you put in a major coaster, you should be ready to deal with major lines.

The line will probably still be better than Fahrenheit's.

08-19-2009, 08:55 AM
The wait would be no more then an hour if the ride doesn't break down. Kennywood can handle major crowds on a daily basis. The only ride that has a line longer then that will be Exterminator because of the horrible capacity. As long as they have a single rider line for the ride, there will be no empty seats! WTG Kennywood!
