Indiana Beach Announces Steel Hawg

Today Indiana Beach announced a new roller coaster for 2008, Steel Hawg. I just googled Hawg, and got a college sports team, lots of Harley stuff, and a seafood restaurant. Weird.

The ride is an S&S Worldwide ride, which looks like a 2nd generation Screamin' Squirrel. That means riders will probably spend a lot of time awkwardly hanging upside down wondering what's going on.

The 4, 4 passenger trains will traverse a 120 degree first drop, a 96 ft. lift, 3 inversions, and a top speed of 41 m.p.h.

The above picture is not specifically of the Hawg, but a general one of the type of ride from S&S's website. It gives a good idea of what we're talking about.

Here's the park's press release and little fact sheet.
