    It would be an awsome place for a wild mouse coaster it would almost make you feel like you were about to fall off a cliff .

      That would be great yeah! I don't know why they didn't think of that. That would probably terrify alot of people. That sounds cool.

    Looks like a cool coaster, but I sadly live in NJ, would have to spend a lot of money to ride one coaster, but this seems fun!
