Aerial Antics: The Wooden Warrior

It is pretty amazing to see how tightly coaster designers, the Gravity Group in this case, can squeeze a coaster in around existing objects at a park. With Quassy's new Wooden Warrior, the park was able to use largely unused space for the ride, yet still have the ride hug the existing park:

If you look carefully at the "before" image on the top, you can actually see that when the aerial was taken footers had started to be poured.  Then, in the "after" image on bottom, we see the completed ride getting ready for it's Spring debut.

I do believe I need to stop by Middlebury, Connecticut next Summer!
