New Section of Roller Coaster
« on: February 08, 2011, 07:07:09 PM »
I  don't know when it was put in, but if you have not been to Alafia in a while, it is right after you hit the "Jump" after the 1st hard option.. lots of new rollers and tight turns.. it really took us by surprise. It does need to be ridden in more as it had lots of soft spots still that bogged my wheels down..


it will be a great new addition to the trail and I think it adds some to the length..


Thanks Art and all others who made it!

Art and I rough cut that back in Oct I believe, before the FSC race. Not sure what the finished form looks like, but it looked like it would be pretty cool. Will have to get out there and check it out.
