    Oh, don't get me wrong, RMC's "proper" woodies look fine. (And I know you weren't being patronising by telling me what everyone and their dog knows about traditional wooden coaster rails, so I'll let you live. This time ;) )

    You might but a lot of people dismiss RMC's for that very reason! :p

    I'm unsure if RMC coasters can live up to the mass hysteria they spawn.

    I look forward to eventually riding one.

    Clearly there is a lot of hype, and when you ride a coaster with a lot of hyper your expectations are naturally a lot higher. I had high expectations when riding both Blue Fire and Helix for the first time because of hype. Thankfully they both lived up to and surpassed expectations.

    When I do eventually ride an RMC I will do so with some trepidation. Clearly American enthusiasts, especially those on TPR, rate them very highly. But I know there is a high chance that they have been slightly overhyped. I do think some of them look epic though, I cannot wait to see Wild Cyclone in operation.

    Ian from Coasterforce rates them very highly too, and he's a grumpy git! :p

    I do think they look ugly, but that won't detect from the experience when on the ride!

    That photo really shows the height difference between the lift hill and the first overbank. This thing looks like it will absolutely fly round the track!

    ...I remember we said the same about 13.

    (obviously a sarcastic comment - I am sure this will be superb)

    I'd imagine that progress has been slowed down somewhat by all of the snow, I think there's still a fair way to go.

    Can't decide which looks more insane, this or Twisted Colossus...Schilke is a genius.

    Sorry for the double post, but first test run! Looks fast until the stall, whereupon it slows down quite a bit. Still though, with time and passengers I can see this being as fast as the CGI POV.

    Yeah it seems to have great speed at first but then does slow down a little. However for a first test run it is very promising!
