    Excellent news and it looks like a really fun coaster! Interesting that they have gone with Gravity Group this time as opposed to GCI. Maybe they wanted an inversion and GCI were not prepared to offer one at this stage.

    2017 is certainly the year of smaller scale woodies in the USA!

    So Mine Blower is due to open on Thursday and the first test run took place a couple of evenings ago. Gravity Group have released this POV from one of the first (if not the first) test runs:



    Looks like brilliant fun filled with plenty of airtime!

    This looks like it could be one of the best coasters in Florida!

    That looks so good. The UK is crying out for something like this.

    It really does look impressive. I love how the inversion goes right over the station as well!
