S&S's new coaster going to Kennywood for 2019 Steel Curtain had its trains revealed today. I am not a football fan and I think the theme is blah and unimaginative but the ride looks fun and I do like the look of the trains. The press release can be found at the following Here.

I do like the look of Kentucky Flyers trains on the new coaster coming to Kentucky Kingdom in 2019. I think a sweet woodie on this scale would be a great fit at Lagoon. I hope the propeller spins, that would be cool.

Parent Company. Is it even really a done deal yet either? At least Disney will now be contracting to basically one company for a large majority of their ride systems.

I thought it was a done deal but I'm not sure.

Yes they look cool except for the restraints. They look very similar to the ones on Rip Ride Rockit which I found weird and uncomfortable.

I've been told Gravity Groups are comfortable but I haven't had a chance to ride one yet to know for sure. These trains can do a 9 foot radius curve which is very impressive.

In 2015 I had the remarkable experience of riding Cú Chulainn, at Tayto Park, Ireland, in it's inaugural year. To call the GravityKraft Timberliner Restraints "Comfortable" is an Understatement of Epic Proportions! The Seats and Restraints were designed for comfort beyond anything I've ever experienced in the Amusement Industry. My only criticism is the curvature of the floors, minimizing the total amount of foot room. The square "Foot Wells" of the GCII Trains are superior.
