Yes, thanks for the photos psychosaw13!

So, the crew that is working on The Runaway expect to be on-site at SDC by September so that's when we can look for the beginning of more major construction. We should have some sort of announcement by then too so that will be fun. Also, I'd bet a big chunk of change that this thing will have a 200 foot drop.  ;)

It will be interesting to see how this comes together soon.

Here's an image that popped up recently and is being passed around enthusiast circles:

It's another new concept from Mack that includes a vertical drop. It's basically an answer to B&M dive machines. That survey is starting to make more sense now...

Looks perfect.

Reminds me of Jackrabbit the way it goes up, turn, and down.

Only two 4 across cars? I hope not. They really don't need another low capacity ride right now.

Nice! Shave, do you happen to know what the height of the drop is in that concept? Around 200?

This might be another example of what to possibly expect. Just watched this on TPR's FB page. It's a Mack coaster as well.

This hurts my neck just watching. Reminds me of the coasters they used to have at Celebration City, short little curves and small neck straining dips.
I hope they keep this new ride a family ride, SDC has done a good job with the coasters so far.  I prefer the long sweeping movements of PowderKeg to the short snappy turns of a coaster like this.

I want a thrilling ride like outlaw run that will make the wait worth it.

I wouldn't compare it to the Jack Rabbit at CC. That was a cheap miller ride which was little more than a portable fair ground ride. This is a multi-million dollar attraction. It'll obviously be forceful, but shouldn't be a neck snapper like the cheap little mouse coasters.

It's basically an answer to the market served by S&S's El Loco, B&M's dive machine, and Gerstauler's Euro-fighters. All of these are awesome ride types. I'd expect SDC's version to be larger and more drawn out - maybe with a couple themed sections inside a building? I can dream...

Capacity on these 8-person cars isn't always ideal, but with proper operations they can actually move as fast as regular long-train coasters. Proper operations is key though...

I love PK, but I also like the quick changes in direction. Maverick at CP is one of my favorite rides and it features very quick changes in directions and "snappy" turns.
