Why? I don't get the excitement for this ride. The new one coming to Fun Spot in Orlando looks better IMO.

Really? I think the elements and succession of elements is very different than most of their other coasters. The drop looks awesome how it dips under the station and into the ground then you go into some funky airtime hill which they never do after a first drop. After that you don't drop all the way back to the ground but make a sharp right turn. Not the usual deadman's turnaround they use. I am not sure what happens at the end of this turn and into the station fly by, but there will be a lot of speed. Then the station fly by exits up into an airtime hill that is completely straight until you crest the top and bank hard to the left. I think that whole part of the layout is very unique and different for them. Can't wait for a POV.

I'm sure it will be fun (although too short as usual), but to me it looks like every other new GCII. I just don't see what makes this one special like everyone is claiming.

If they tweaked that second hill so it wouldn't be as curvy, making it just a regular hill, it looks like it would be a nice balanced coaster. The hill out of the Station at that speed looks awesome, just the rest of the hills need to be less curvy and more general. One of the things that I don't get with GCII.
