Am I the Only One Excited About...?
This looks like it could be really innovative and awesome, or it might have restraints like NY, NY (trip review coming) and be horrendous. I honestly don't know how they are going to pull it off, but it is a different design, and I have heard great things about the new Texas Giant. The pics look very impressive. We are hoping to plan a Christmas in America so that we can hopefully go to Dollywood and Silver Dollar City.
What are everyone's thoughts on Outlaw so far?
Silver Dollar City was a possible destination for me this summer, in a "package" including Worlds Of Fun and SFStL. I realized my body and wallet wouldn't be able to handle it. That probably won't change next year, but I would really like to make it there. The park looks cool, and Outlaw Run looks...well, "cool" would not be a strong-enough word. Mind-blowing is more like it.

I noticed the length is a little on the short side too, but it kind of reminds me of Kawasemi, or the Mega-Lite. Those are a bit shorter, and not quite as fast. The main thing I like about them is the amount of elements, and pacing. If done correctly, it really works. Let's hope for the same here.
This thing is gonna haul a** at 68MPH, talk about covering track very quickly. At those speeds, I can't help but think about Maverick's failed third inversion, the heartline roll, which was taken out; Outlaw Run has three twist type inversions, after initial high speeds from the first drop, hopefully the tests will go according to plan, and none of the inversions will be too intense for the GP.
Outlaw Run is gonna have a terrained first drop of minus 55 ft, is that a record (107 ft tall lift, and a 162ft drop) for any drop? I'll be pretty surprised if it's not.

Not saying that the coaster gods can't interfere and say that the second attempt at a modern wooden looper is also doomed to fail... But I do find it unlikely. We'll see.
