SFOT Runaway Mountain Concept Art

I'm sorry about the stupid papers on the right side - I decided that showing the image with the papers was better than never sharing it...

Built in 1996 by Premier Rides it's sorta like Great Adventure's Skull Mountain's cousin ... they were both developed by the company similarly, but then later in development both received different names and distinct themes.

Different names? Yes, Six Flags Over Texas' ride was to be named Skull Mountain early on as well. The fact that they were totally different coasters (Great Adventure's is Intamin) and different themes led to the different name later on.

You learn something new each day! Well, unless you already knew that...
