    I wonder if they're just balaclavas for the cold?

    Could be, but wearing face masks to protect from germs (even though they do next to nothing) is really common in East Asia. I see a fair few at uni wearing them as well.

    Yes, but the material used within this image is merely for heat - they're the hoods that go under helmets when you're skiing etc.

    That's got to be the largest 6-seater dive coaster in existence. That looks longer than Valkyria!

    Really like the dive under the wooden coaster structure! Neat idea :)

    Are those brake fins on a b&m though?

    I can't believe no one has mentioned the amazing loose article storage system this ride has.

    I really don't understand the point of that, whatsoever?

    I suppose this is open now, so I can unsticky (before ATI asks me ;) ).

    I actually quite like the storage bins - although not sure how 'secure' it looks in terms of things falling off!

    I wasn't. I don't even know what you mean by sticky. Do you mean pinned to the top? If so, I still wouldn't have said out.

    Nah, you're right - you've never demanded changes or pointed out that titles should be changed, topics should be moved or anything. Never.

    That storage idea is absolute genius, we need that everywhere ASAP.

    They should've just used a flap system similar to Icon.

    Something like it would be great if there were separate on- and off-loading stations. Load up the locker in the loading station, then send it off so it arrives to meet the train in the offloading station. In a single-station set-up, it's pretty pointless, however.

    By the looks of it, this system means guests can unload their bags in the batching gates on one side of the station and collect when exiting on opposite side. Surely there are simpler ways of doing so but I do love the look of this system.

    Not only does it not look particularly secure, what happens if it breaks down and someones bag is stuck above the track?
