"Mountain Flyer" GCI terrain coaster for Knight Valley

Wed Sep 29, 2010 8:54 pm

I think there was a topic about this lost in the aeons of time but search won't find anything. Zip. Zilch.

Need I say much more? :D

Oh alright then...

I think that this will snatch the Mitch Hawker #1 spot instantly upon opening...

The concept art you posted in the original thread Sam didn't do this thing justice. The bending hill looks stunning and what a landscape. If only it wasn’t in such an unlikely place to visit.

No one could do it justice, to be fair, it's very rare to come across a really great recreation. I've made something 'inspired' cough*copied*cough by it, but nothing can match the real thing.

RCT could not even begin to do this beast justice.

Wait... which woodie are we talking about at this point? ;)



On a serious note, this ride looks fantastic, I can't see it failing to win Mitch Hawker #1 Woody as soon as it opens, Alton Towers get one now please. :D

I wouldn't go that far, that's like saying 'Dark Side Of The Moon' makes 'Sgt Pepper' look crap! :lol:

I'm not sure this coaster will be as good as Boulder Dash, as it doesn't look like it has that much airtime. But it does look like a mix of the terrain style of BD with the epic grand scale of the Intamin woodies like T-Express.
