RailBlazer Track On-Site at California's Great America

The small orange track for the upcoming RailBlazer Coaster is now on site at California's Great America!

The race continues to see whether Six Flags or Cedar Fair will complete and open the 'first ever' single-rail coaster. Track arrived earlier this week at Six Flags Fiesta Texas for the Wonder Woman Coaster.

The Coaster will have a moving station along with single-rider cars directly in line with the track which is around only 15" wide! Each train holds 8 riders on the 106-foot tall track.

You can see how small the track really is in this picture. The supports will be wider than the track in many areas! Pic: Erik Chalhoub via AceNorCal

So, who do you think will complete the first ever single-rail coaster first? Six Flags Fiesta Texas or the much heavier-themed RailBlazer at California's Great America. I'd have to guess Six Flags based on the rockwork needed at CGA! But you never know!
