    Yes, those trains are fit.

    I wonder if the #whatsinthe:emoji_zipper_mouth:ingshed thing is some kind of mechanics garage. I'm getting a bit of a Verbolten vibe after seeing the trains and thinking about that :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing shed. But we know it's not a vertical drop. Wonder if it will be some sort of wobbly track thing like on Winjas at Phantasialand.

    On the shed... I'm really surprised it has remained under wraps. I sadly will be missing opening weekend as I'll be traveling for Easter... we shall see if I can stay in the dark until I visit.

    Full POV... just shy of the shed!

    I also never noticed the bump of trick track on the return journey. Overall, looks like it keeps good speed!

    Okay, that actually looks really fab. I love the look of the return section.

    I was peering into the darkness at the end trying to spot something, but with no luck. I guess we'll find out tomorrow!

    I unfortunately won't be able to make it to Kings Island until May at the earliest... I am interested if I can stay in the dark on what's in the shed until then!

    TPR have just uploaded a video, doesn't really show what happens in the shed, but does show what it looks like on the inside.
    Guess that an inversion can definitely be ruled out

    Trust TPR to make it clickbait...

    Am I the only one not seeing anything though? To me it just looks like your average storage shed/transfer track with no interior decoration?
    (Think the actual ride looks fantastic though)

    I didn't see anything. Maybe they're preventing people from seeing what happens?

    I didn't see anything untoward either but I felt it was worth the post just so that you lot might be able to spot something, perhaps a track mechanism or what not, to be fair I wouldn't be surprised if it was an unloading station to 'scare' the people waiting to get on ride when an empty train comes back, there certainly doesn't look to be anything special from the video. Rather underwhelming really, if that is the transfer track what can they really do with it trick track wise? I highly dought we will get a drop track as I can't see that working to allow for a transfer, I believe that the train will enter the shed, the doors will close, transfer goes to the left with the loaded train on it, then there is a show with air cannons, lights sound etc, perhaps a scare actor or two at a special event, then the transfer goes back and the train continues on; that or its just a normal transfer shed.

    Might be just a marketing stunt and literally nothing happens in the shed? ;)

    Well that's just embarrassing. I love the music part but to market it as something significant just cheapens it all in my opinion.
