If i worked there, i'd keep some random track pieces and every now and again, paint them different colors then set the on skids outside the plant and watch the coaster community explode.

Reports of red track outside the Batavia Steel plant. By the looks of the track, my guess is a hyper or Giga.

I thought T3 was red because they wanted it to match their financial reports?

No, it's supposed to match the look of embarrassment on the face of anyone rejected from the park for saying anything slightly negative, before ever being allowed into the park.

Saw pictures of the track up close on FB. According to the labels it is a Wing Coaster and is going to a park in China.

Not going to post the photos here as they do not appear to have been taken legally.

I'd say it's against the terms of their employment to discuss anything that hasn't been announced. Would you be comfortable risking that person's employment? Would you report whatever you discuss? Would they trust you with any secret information if they knew the answer to that question?

Understood.

I do not think the park has announced the new Coaster yet. Their page is in Chinese which I cannot read but I see nothing showing a Wing Rider.

 

As for your friend, you can talk to them about anything you feel, including these parts. Sharing them with us is most likely not an option from said discussions though. I'm sure they would tell you that as well.

Wait, is this ride using the classic 4-across trains and not the V-Shaped ones? Huh. And it's NOT a Giga but a normal hyper. Either SeaWorld just didn't want to spend extra money on the V-Trains, or perhaps an issue was found with them.

As for the coaster itself: looks like Fury 325 and Diamondback rolled into one and then shrunk down to just 200 feet (versus 230 for Diamondback and 325 for Fury 325).

The V style seating is kinda cool and all, but it's not necessary, you can still get a good view without them, plus it makes for a smaller train length, so easier to go up and down the platform to do checks. I'm completely ok with that.

Nitro has nine.

Terp, who likes to ride on the night row.

 

After all these years, I give up. Is "night row" simply a reference to Nitro, or does it refer to a specific row on that coaster? And if the latter, which row? That way, if I ever get to NJFTP, I know to try that row. :)

A front seat ride should be tried at least once.

I've done that once or twice, just as I have ridden the front seat of The Georgia Cyclone a few times. Back's where it's at on those.

Bizarro at SFGAd is a front (and back) seat ride...

I think how many cars depends on elements and weight distribution through the ride. Shorter trains should be able to transverse shorter elements. But there is a reason for different coasters to have different amount of cars and setup.
