Description As our last project before college and maybe last major project in our K'NEX careers, Ben (coastercrazy10) and I (pkiknex25) have teamed up under the direction of Adrenalin Coasters to build Diamondback, the new B&M hyper at Kings Island for 2009. Standing over 7 feet and 6 inches, this monster's ride cycle lasts about 20 seconds from top of lift to base of the lift. Diamondback features 144 feet of track, 6 airtime hills, a total of 10 drops, a hammerhead turn-around, and 2 upward helices. Pushing K'NEX and its limitations to the max while keeping to a decent relative scale, Diamondback puts itself in an unmatched league of its own!

This looks really good, but he last helix looks kinda of rushed. i know you guys didnt have a lot of time but it looks kind of sloppy. other than that, looks awesome. my chances at moty just went down he drain.
