Flying Over Gold Striker at California's Great America

If Kevin's update on both Gold Striker and California's Great America wasn't enough for us all, check out this video of the new coaster shot with a quad helicopter and mounted camera.

That must have taken some serious skill to get these shots, so mega props to the operator who shot the video.  I've seen many companies starting to use quadcopter shots for marketing purposes, and I think this shows just how nicely it works for theme parks. 

These shots also immediately brought to mind a comparison of the original concept art for the ride... so I just had to throw the two of them together above.  Pretty dead on, no?
