    Those lift hills on their own already looked pretty big! If my August 2016 visit was anything to go by, this coaster will be extremely dominant when it's fully built!

    ^I would be surprised if there is one tbh. The one element I thought had potential to be a real stall (the big reverse wave over the station) turned out not to be. Oh well, at least its 200ft tall

    Aren’t their technically stall(s) in this layout? They aren’t full, long ones but by my definition of the understanding there is some there. (2:55, 3:11 and 3:18 are where.) The first isn’t quite a wave turn, as far as I can tell, and neither is the second. The third element looks an awful lot like a stall indeed.


    The first two, either way, should be given a new name anyway. “Kickout” or thereabouts

    When @tomahawk says stall, he means this:

    I feel the term 'stall' is thrown around left, right and centre for anything that has an elongated inverted section - in reality, stalls are as Hixee shows above.

    This.

    Just because it has a delayed roll, doesn't make it a stall. If you call them the same, you clearly haven't ridden a real stall.

    So what are we calling all these half-stalls and outward banked turns? What about the one on Vengeance, the quick-diving thing? IMO, with all the new elements cropping up in the lexicon, we should classify them better

    Wow there's actually not that much left, this project will be an interesting half-way point between a ground-up I-box and a conversion.
