    It's not as fancy as some of the others..but I used power tools..and still have all digits attached to me!! ;). Tomorrow we'll go to Home Depot to buy some weights..
    It weighs 2.3oz right now..need to get it as close as possible to 5.

    What do you guys think of the design? Will it make it to the finish line?lol

    I think it's got a shot!

    Throw on some jet propulsion -- I mean wheels, and you're all set!:p

    We have to drill holes for the weights and then fill holes with wood putty..then paint..then wheels.

    Kiddo wants a Creeper (minecraft) car, so I'll get some paint while I'm at the store tomorrow. I'm also be purchasing some kind of lubricant for the wheels..will be watching a lot of YouTube videos first.lol

    @Siren don't give up so soon. This is an amazing community and we have so much to do that you can very easily ditch the News & Rumors board and burn those bridges to the ground if you'd like. We have so many threads to participate in like these threads and the discussion threads, a ton of open brainstormings (with one very successful one just finished and another one just getting started), Dream Resorts, Park re-dos, and some extremely fun competitions. Don't count your losses before you even start.

    I don't know how I feel about that one. I'm a fan of the classic drop.

    I'm not a big fan of drop towers ironically enough. The random drops nearly give me a heart attack every time.

    I just hate sitting up there not knowing when I'm going to drop. The rest I love.

    I talked about this new wooden coaster on the first page.. I can't wait until April 15th!
    I'm a total kid when it comes to a new coaster..I think it's even more exciting that there's a whole mystery aspect. 99 more days til we find out #whatsintheshed
