Dull and boring are 2 words I never expected to hear about this ride...

I think it looks pretty immense to be quite honest. :)
If you go down to the Towers today, you\'d better ride Th13teen. :P

I think the red track on the wooden supports looks ace, it looks evil and aggresive, makes it stand out and gives it an edge, and so does the extra metal supports.

Metal track on wooden supports means you get steel control and smoothness, while still having the rattling and the dangerous. barely standing feel that some wooden coasters have.

Erm, what the hell is that?! It looks...um, is that a woody/steal hybrid? :?

They should of renamed it 'Dangerous', just because it looks dangerous. :P

It looks like someone's built the perfect wooden coaster and then let their child beat it out of shape with a hammer. :lol:

It looks like the most dangerous, wild, out of control, crazy pieces of track I've ever seen...

I. LOVE IT.

It looks like one of those home made, back garden coasters that's been scaled up. Ugly as sin, but it looks insane enough to compete with The Ultimate. :mrgreen:

Six Flags have posted a video of a full test run.

It is seriously flying over those hills and the overbank looks insane! I think Six Flags have really got something awesome here. Let's just hope we don't see it neutered in further test runs.

Do we know who did this ride? I don't get where they'd get the idea for something like this Haha!

Must say, looks quite good!

I believe the idea was Six Flag's. The company rebuilding the track are an unknown called Rocky Mountain Construction. The trains are by TTF favourite Gerstlauer.

I'll be honest, watching that new video is the first time I've actually felt like this rollercoaster might be ridden by actual people! Before the track just looked too absurd to run a coaster on...

To be honest, I'm really disappointed that it seems kind of "normal" now, as if people can actually ride it... I half wanted it to fall down on the first test run! :P
