19 megs, 4 min., .wmv, it looks like it will download first, then open it.

Rainman did a nice job on the movie, he asked me to host it.

i think the video was great. but the ride looks like crap set up and running. to much of the trailer is exposed and not enuff scenery. thats my opinion. im not as impressed with it as i was.

lol, i think the same thing...the 1st sketches they had of the ride i believe it had a big backwall, and IMO it would look much better w/ it ...

Thanks to Rainman and Pinetar for the video. The ride does not look very impressive. The biggest drawback is not having 1 stop loading and unloading. That will kill the capacity and money the ride could generate.

Majestic has a good idea, but it needs some improvements.

Ya know...I was thinking the same thing. They need some kind of platform to match the "hump" so that you could load the whole ride at once.

And a backdrop is a must have. The ride looks too exposed as it is.

Thanks Pinetar for the hosting 🙂

The Catch-N-Air is a copy of the old Flying Coaster. The Flying Coaster had a jump. The Catch-N-Air has a hump. I guess that's so you can ride backwards. At least the old Flying Coaster did catch some air. This ride never leaves the track except for an inch when it bumps off the hump. In the long run the Flying Coaster turned out to be a blank. I'd guess this ride will have no staying power at all.

PS, the video was very professional. I love ABBA. I have tickets to see the ABBA musical Mama Mia next week in Vegas.

nice video, catch-n-air looks okay to me, gives you some good pops of airtype, has no idea it operated going in both farward and backwards, thats kinda neat, but yeah, a back drop would be nice, a sound system would be nice too and add a couple of strobes, and you've got a great ride, still it looks like a fun ride
