Re: SW6 Ride discussion Part 2

They may have let the intamin thing slip but they weren't gonna ask them to send it under like Brake Bros. or Burger King and they could hardly ask them to tape the plastic on with brown parcel tape :P

Re: SW6 Construction

Spinball, after the first horseshoe turn there's more helices and stuff, and a MCBR if I'm not mistaken?

A little bird told me while I was on park a few details of Magic Mountain's 2010 coaster. I'm taking them with a pinch of salt, but I guess you guys wouldn't really be interested in something like that... right? ;)

Being Orochi a 13 years old used ride had a very affordable price even for a small park. I think that Wlygato made a great deal buying it and I can't wait to get there next week and ride it.
