Rougarou Files Episode 4

The next episode is here. Looks like they're going all out with theming by adding light and sound effects. May 8th can't get here quick enough.

I guess there's hope for the howl yet. Maybe not on the top of the lift hill, but i think the ride will definitely benefit greatly from swamp fog/sound effects to enhance the experience.

I wonder what the Rougarou will look like

It will probably resemble a Dikfur.


Promoter of fog.

I was very skeptical of that the conversion of this ride would have ever happened, and even more skeptical that it would be a success. However, after seeing more and more about this project and thinking about the coaster becoming floorless I have changed my opinion and am excited to see and ride the finished product.

The lighting, sound effects, and even glimpses of the Rougarou in the lagoon are a bonus. I think Banshee at night with the lighting and sound effect is great - if they step that up a bit for Rougarou I would be very happy.

Its been too long since I last rode a coaster... I am ready for May 8th

What's Dikfur?

Aside from that, I really enjoyed watching this episode. There's a lot of snow in the video. Looks about the same as there was during Winter Chill Out? Maybe they shot the video shortly after the tour. I'm so happy that this is becoming a reality when a lot of people on here told me It couldn't be done last year and years past.

To pee with, silly.

I've been waiting for the episode where they discuss the infamous "heart line" and go over the various analytical/data research they did with B&M on whether the project would be feasible. We all know what the answer ultimately was, but Tony ,mentioned they would discuss it in depth

I'd assume the next episode will be the final episode and it will go into detail about all that. I imagine it will come out some time after opening day and cover everything from conception to opening.

Edit: According to Tony's Twitter, this is the last episode.

Hopefully Tony reads this thread. Hopefully after opening day, they also upload a POV from Platinum ride night. ;)

Sounds like the end result will be some very Banshee-ish, which makes me even more excited (especially night rides).

I just thought of a question I haven't asked before. Will Rougarou have LED lights somewhere in the ride structure? I think this would modernize Rougarou to what Mantis never had.

What, you didn't like the outdated running lights up the Mantis lift hill? :)

I love the lighting package for Fury325. At night, the green just looks spectacular.

I love the lighting on Magnum's hill. It makes it look very retro.

1989 is retro? Get off my lawn!

Okay maybe retro was a bad word to use. How about classic 80s look :)

From Merriam-Webster:

Retro: looking like or relating to styles or fashions from the past

http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/retro

It doesn't say anything about how many years back you need to go, so 1989 can fit that definition. I even refer to NES games as retro games, and they were out during that time.

Apparently the sarcasm detector isn't working again

+ NOTHING constructive

Missed a full season at CP for the first time since 2007, maybe Sandusky will be back on my travel list next year.... Depends what CP has up their sleeve for 2023.

^ And apparently you just added NOTHING constructive to this conversation.

What I'm mostly curious about now is the sound effects Jason talked about, along with the visual aspect of riding during the day time vs. night time.

I'll get a night ride on it at preview night and probably at least once more while I'm there opening weekend. My anticipation for this is higher than it was for Gatekeeper.
