    Eagle Fortress

    Does anybody have any pictures or information about Eagle Fortress at Everland? All I know is that it's an arrow suspended coaster built into a hill side. I already saw the rcdb info, so dont bother posting that.

    The only picture I was able to find was here
    (the one of the left)

    I had a massive panoramic of it once. Didn't reveal much because the ride is surrounded by pretty thick foliage.

    I'm wondering how much of a leap over Big Bad Wolf it is in dealing with the close and wooded moutain terrain. I read it's very tough to photo because of all the trees - GREAT! Coasterforce has been quite helpful.

    It was cold, cold this afternoon but I got my Eagle Fortress credit. The first drop was a short turnaround but then the ride got buck-wild. The banking was awesome, being very close to the hill and vegetation was really cool. The S-turn towards the brake run was a nice touch. L shape layout with several helixes towards the end. As described it was really tough to shots of this ride other than in the station. My multi frame shot still could not catch the train as I sensed it turning over the station. I love when the train rocks back and forth on the final brake run. I hope to have a TR later this week.
