    I quite like the name in all honesty. Looking forward to seeing the forward/backwards trains.

    I think there should be a really good addition to the park. As It will travel through the park you will be able to hear people screaming and see it. One of the original complaint about the park when it first opened was that all the rides were in boxes so people can really see what was going on or how many rides there were.

    The press release makes it seem like there will be a holding brake. Also, it's not tall enough to get any views. I wonder how long the trains will be!

    You'll get a nice view of the roof, though. ;)

    There's also nothing to get a view of...

    The roof of Ferarri World and the airport I've been working on are the only things of any interest for about 10 miles. And most of the time it's too hazy to be able to see that far anyway... :D

    Yeah, either the roof or the sun!
    Is this basically a modern take on the reverse freefall coaster

    And you are likely to get sandblasted at certain times of the year!

    I'm struggling to understand the launch mechanism? It seems odd to me that they haven't attached the LSM fins when constructing?

    ^It looks like they're installed in the picture above. Although in other pictures of the hill, it looks as if the row of LSMs have metal brake fins too. Weird.

    @Dubaidave - Any truth to this?

    Oh BOO.

    The soft ones are OK but they're not as fab as no OTSR </3

    I have asked the park and they have not replied. Someone was there today and the train running was normal. I haven't had chance to head down there recently.

    Great, glad to hear it Dave.

    I'd appreciate a picture or two of the opening in the roof and how they prevent all the cool air flooding out. I haven't seen any pictures that show it in much detail, and when I was there with Ben/Jake in October they still hadn't really finished the hole.

    Looks like an strange ride, going to be interesting to see it running.

    Seconding this, on behalf of all the other building physicists on CF.

    (I'd actually be surprised if there were others than Hixee and me)

    ^Haha I was wondering that as well.

    I'm just really interested to see what trains this has...
