Gosh does anyone think the Big Dipper needs a coat of paint because it looks very old and rotting compared to Icon and even Infusion!

It is nearly 100 years old so yeah, a repaint would be nice :P

I'm sure that I read someone saying that new paint damages the wood though.

Hmm disagree - the grey just fades in to the background. Green would have made it stand out against the other coasters better.

It is either the angle of the picture or that is one steep Immelmann inversion! It looks pretty crazy!

I really love how open they are being with construction. They are practically giving us an update on a weekly basis and I must admit its getting me rather excited for the coaster. I will be braving a 6 hour train journey to experience this, that's for sure!

The competition is to win boarding cards, not to ride the attraction before it's public debut.

Indeed which is why I used the phrasing from the competiton “amongst the first” and not the first, nor did I mention this was to ride before its debut. But thank you for clarifying that although I’m sure those who followed the link would have found this. :)

It's just that your original post read like it was a competition to ride before the public opening, that's all. No need to get in a fuss :P

No fuss had buddy, it is a good competition though just a shame they a running things like this through external partners, I really would have liked to have seen them build marketing with competitions like this in it. Build the ride character not through a shopping centre.
