I am in a definite tug with the project most local to me: Skyrush vs. X-Flight and Wild Eagle which are significant enough I have to consider those two as well. The facebook group for the Skyrush project has kept me up to date every day with park employees and very local fans visiting the site, which is right next to a public road for optimal photo chances-really fast updates. The process has me quite involved.
Wild Eagle has me invested because it was built so early and the park fans present on this site have been very involved in following it. Six Flags Great America just has a construction camera and a minor facebook presence for their construction of X-Flight but overall I find that design is truly original. Wild Eagle's design follows that of a traditional B&M out and back sitdown or floorless coaster with the new wing coaster trains.
I admire Seaworld for bringing a launched Mack coaster. That project was the earliest to get moving. The Mack launched coaster line is promising because of what Blue Fire has brought to Germany and the displeasure I've expressed with Intamin the last 5 years for Maverick, Fahrenheit, and 305. I hope Skyrush will reveal to me a change with Intamin. I'm also opening up to Gerstlauer. There are only 4 Eurofighters in the US at the moment and I've only been on Mystery Mine. I was on it in 2007 but it wasn't strong enough to garner any of my interest in the brand until recently when Canobie added Untamed, SFDK had the portable spinning Big Spin until just a month ago, and Galveston Historical Pier announced a new portable Eurofighter. Hopefully the portable pier model can come to New Jersey for the Steel Pier. We haven't had a vertical lift coaster in NJ since Ultra Twister at SFGADV.
I'm between Skyrush and X-Flight.
Marcus this is a very thorough representation in the poll.
