#YOLOCOASTER is looking pretty fancy. I really do love Premier's new track design.

This loop just goes on and on and on and on....

EDIT: Thoughts on the ride.

Pros:
-Premier looks to have made another good installation
-That loop has HANG TIME
-Smooth as melted butter <3

Cons:
-WHERE THE HELL IS THE STATION!?
-Incredibly short
-Looks like it's going to be a capacity nightmare
-"enjoy the ride" when it's 2/3rds of the way done
-Horrible color scheme
-Ozzy Osbourne + Doctor P = Ear Poison

Solid design, but like you said, terrible capacity. I wonder how many issues it's going to have with the backwards launch. Sounds like an easier way to confuse the computer to be honest.

Oh east coast people... Never seen an outdoor ride station before. lol.


It's actually not too uncommon for a ride to be completely outdoors, though this honestly looks like they just rushed with certain parts of the ride to get it ready for opening day.

"Too scary for your family?
Visit us during the day to experience family-friendly rides, Sesame Street Forest of Fun and Land of the Dragons children’s areas, and up-close animal encounters perfect for fall fun. Once the clock strikes 6 p.m., the Howl-O-Scream scares begin which may not be suitable for young children."

The ride's been getting pretty rave reviews lately despite the short layout. Strangely enough, everyone seems to love the ending of the ride.

The backwards launch is actually part of the ride's design. It's basically a rocking launch similar to Superman Ultimate Skyloop. I don't think it'll be the most problematic thing on the ride.

The ride is basically designed with two trains in mind. One train clears the top hat before the next is launched. If it had three trains, there would always be a train stacked behind the train loading into the station.

I agree that the park rushed the ride opening, but the coaster itself looks pretty amazing. Hopefully the park will get everything else finished in time. I'm surprised the tunnel effects weren't working on opening day.

I waited forever to see videos of POV rides from this coaster. It looks [email protected]$$!! I LOVE how it has a top hat. Hopefully they won't be the only one in the US to have that one day. I won't ever get to ride it, but I can just live vicariously through other's vids on YT.#YOLO

This ride is about as exciting as an insurance seminar.
