I very much disagree that a big woodie wouldn't be worth SW status. Quite the opposite. In my opinion if we had anything close to the original plans, with the near 200 ft drop(s), would quite possibly be the second best coaster at the park. (After nemesis of course) and I really hope they pull it together and we get SW7 within 4 or 5 years! :D I mean this may not happen but fingers crossed! :D :D
I really doubt any wooden coaster will go through the valley. Thirteen is where the station would be, the MTDP shows there is no coaster planned for the valley and it would be unthemed. The ride will be somewhere else and i'm hoping 2014 and SW7.
AT simply has to go wooden next. A comfortable yet thrilling ride, which appeals to all.
Comfortable? No thanks. If you want a smooth ride go on Air or Thirteen. A woodie should be rough-ish and violent. It should throw you about and feel wild. They can't be as smooth as steel so shouldn't try. Instead they should be the opposite. And personally, I think i'd prefer this woodie to be properly intense and old school thrill.[/quote]
I should have defined what I meant as comfortable - as in no pain etc, as i've come off some woodies with bruises!
I agree it should be wild. That's what I find thrilling on a woodie is the ability for a simple helix or turn to be completely insane, due to the wild ride.
