NOTE: I'm still having issues with my new video software. This is not even close to the quality I was hoping for. Also, remember this is a teaser -- custom supports are used and there is still track smoothing, terrain, environment, etc., to complete.

Ricochet is a PTC Classic 2-Bench wooden coaster. It features a 112 foot curving drop, loads of airtime, and several sharp twists and turns. My goal with the ride was to merge the best of a GCI styled layout with a more traditional 'out & back' layout. Nearly every hill has 'ejector' airtime, with negative G's exceeding -1.0. Some of the turns are banked beyond 70 degrees!

It's a design that I've been kicking around for a while. 2011 will feature a lot of rides I built last year but never finished due to computer issues.

The ride has its fair share of pumps and bumps, but I hand-build all of my tracks -- not using any of the tools available such as Elementary, Newton, or the AHG.

Please rate and comment (constructive comments only) and, of course, Enjoy!
