The park put out an ad a couple months ago featuring the front of the train.

I remember seeing that before. However, there was a certain cognitive dissonance which told me that it couldn't be real.

In an totally unrelated question, isn't there a huge painkiller overuse epidemic in Florida?

I mean it fits the theme for the coaster, not sure why you'd knock the design. Also WTF do painkillers have to do with anything?

I've been seeing a ton of people disliking the design online. I really just don't get the issue to be honest? I think they look fairly good actually...

Sorry to jump topics again, but other than Hades 360, there's another looping Wooden Coaster. Jungle Trailblazer at Oriental Heritage Fantawild park in China, also features a Barrel Roll element. It's also manufactured by Gravity Group, which seem to be the only "True" wooden roller coaster company currently adding inversions to their coasters. Philidelphia Toboggan Company is also able to; however, nobody has yet bought into the concept.

I like Gravity Groups designs, though Gravity Groups (from what I understand) age much quicker than say GCI. Mine Blower looks like a fantastic, compact roller coaster. I hope to make it down to Fun Spot in the near future when the coaster debuts.

Here's a construction update featuring Korey Kiepert from Gravity Group.  Height requirement is 48" and the station will have an ADA elevator.
