We've had some problems at rollercoasterworld.com with the i.s.p., but for those of you wondering what the GCI rolling stock will look like, take a peek below. Hopefully, all the pictures will be up soon, including some that show the incredible banking on this ride.

Now those are open faced cars.... by Iceman at 4/11/00 6:03:08 PM

I have been debating with myself over weather to call The Boss trains open face or not but after seeing these I would definately call these open faced......I know Jeff T's post down below on the previous post I had about The Boss cars helped me figure things out a bit but I still say these are what true open faced cars are. Wether this is the front car or not I am not sure but if it is I cant wait to ride. I know these are just like the other GCI trains on Roar I believe but I still like these better than the look of The Boss's. Happy Coastering everyone.

It's not. The coupling is visible. Here's a front car of a GCI train...

I agree that that is what an open faced car should look like. Somewhat like what AC and RB have for trains.

Thanks for the pic Jeff........ by Iceman at 4/11/00 9:59:12 PM

Thanks for the picture. Now I see exactly what you meant below about the difference between open fronted and open faced. I didn't realize GCI had that much in front of the first car. Of course the big differnce is they have less vertical bars going all the way up than the Boss trains do. So I think they will give a much better view of the track than the Gerstauler (junky) trains will.
