    Go on then, I'll move this to Ride Construction.

    I'll amend the title when the Hyper goes vertical.

    Is this a clone of the one at Shanghai?

    yes it is although there are some small difference in support structure.

    For reference, Although essentially a direct clone of the Vekoma SFC the B&M does have a slightly different layout.
    There is a slight difference on the figure of 8 structure midway through the ride. The B&M goes over then under and climbs up during the turn around while the Vekoma stays up and doesn't dive back under then descends during the turnaround. If that makes sense.

    Doesnt make a whole lot of difference to the ride experience but thought it was interesting.

    And seems like we get to see the Intamin take on this exact same layout soon at WB in Abu Dhabi as well.

    Sorry for double posting, but does anyone know when the B&M Hyper (Music Roller Coaster according to RCDB) is due to open? According to RCDB, it's opening in May 2018, but I don't think that's happening.

    It is due to open in 2019 as well as the rafting. In 2018 only the "Family" Rides are due to open.

    Ah right. Thanks @Blue Bumble Bee! RCDB has made a mistake there, then. Is there any way of telling RCDB this?

    Ah I forgot this was being built. I guess my "completed set" of B&M Family Inverts was short lived. :p

    Looks nice and fun, but for some reason the openness on the lift hill really weirds me out :p

    This looks so excessive. I wonder what the price tag for this was.
    Is it just me or this could easily win the title for 'most intricate netting system' of any coaster in the world? Just look at those supports sticking from the main supports on the helices...

    I've never heard any figures categorically for these, but I bet they're a fair mark-up on the Vekoma models! It does make me wonder why they bother with them? If Vekoma won't work with the chain (will they?), couldn't they get one of the other (read: cheaper) manufacturers to knock them up a version? Whole thing is so strange!

    Curiously, the one in Shanghai has similarly expansive netting/screening -
