Going back to the Wanted cards: "Chess" is a strange choice to name a train. Just wondering if those names are hints as to the elements in the ride; e.g. Blackjack could refer to a double-down, Digger could be a track element going under another....


Just say no to trims

I would also agree with this being a chain lift. That small bunny hill make me think it would get stuck if anything failed. Agreeing with FinalForce. Does RMC have any other types of lift hills? I have personally never been on a RMC yet.

^ Potential maintenance issues aside, that would actually be pretty cool if it had a cable lift. Doubt it'll happen, though.

They have a launched lift (like Maverick) on Lightning Rod. Everything else uses a chain lift.

Tech that's not there launch system, so RMC has a company only has a chain and with the issues they had with LR I doubt they would outsource the vendor for the launch system again.

...or 3 very uniquely themed trains.

In this video from the hard hat tour at the 2:34 mark

you can see several low ledgers below turn three. Has anyone seen more recent pictures of this area? I know it is almost impossible to see that corner from the public areas but hoping that we soon can see something from over by Slingshot.

Chain lifts are my favorite. You can really take in the view on the slow climb to the top and there is more time to build anticipation for the ride.


I'd rather be in my boat with a drink on the rocks,
than in the drink with a boat on the rocks.

Well..which character was revealed? Also, I'd like to see the information regarding Black Jack as I think he is the leader of the gang. The reward for his capture is more than the other three. Yes, I'm counting the ostrich poster.

I have no idea how to actually post it on the page. Here is the link to the new poster.

Looking at the construction today I can confirm another inversion low to the ground but it is not a stall

^^ This. I saw it on my Instagram feed just as I was about to leave work, so I didn't have time to describe it in detail. And the Instagram account that posted it is private, so I couldn't link it here.
