Great, this looks exciting. I don't usually have the urge to go all of the way out there but next year I will want to go back now!!!

what ever happened with that flying turns fiasco? Is it up and running or has it been scapped?

I wounldnt call Flying Turns a dead project yet. It seems they are still working on it which I applaud them for. I think they are just working on Golden Nugget/Black Diamond right now though.

They are working on both. Since Black Diamond is rebuilding a ride that worked before, its not a problem to get working again. Flying Turns is a much more complicated project. Last I read (sometime around Phunfest back in October) they were waiting for a new train chassis to be manufactured (again).

Does anyone have any news, photos or updates on the Golden Nugget project? I looked with some search engines but they did not yield much.

Looks like it will be a great ride, I really need to get back there to try Black Diamond and get my Kozmo Kurves credit.
