70 miles an hour? Christ.

Thats outpacing a whole bunch of early aircraft. I'd love to see what the G forces would be doing to people's faces in those photos they take while you are on the ride. Should be one to show the grandkids.

They had a guy on television yesterday who has been on several space missions. He said the sensation, at one point of the ride, is similar to when they power down the rockets as you cross into space. I like the idea of going straight down for 200'.

That looks SICK

This is the closest thing I have (http://www.worldsoffun.com/worlds_of_fun/rd_mamba.html#)

The mamba.... it doesn't have the loopies though. I may have to make a trip to Busch Gardens now.

The closest we have is Oblivion.

It was the worlds first vertical drop rollercoaster.... but its crappy... and small.... although it goes at 69mph.

Nice. But we Brits did it years before you Yanks with Oblivion. Would be great to give it a try though.

that is off this world, i wanna ride it asap :icon_eplu it's hell!!

U guys r so lucky to have coasters like that.... here in belgium, we never see stuff like that... and i know, coz my parents, and so i as well, have our own fairground attraction... i've been to so many places, seen so many rides, but nothin comes close to the thrills you guys have... cherish it :P
