    Verrrrry twisty! I love it! It's definitely a big step-up by Vekoma! :)

    Does the drop strike anyone else as pitching beyond vertical?

    I'm just surprised it hasn't been talked about more. These must be the longest trains on a beyond-vertical drop. The air should be intense!

    Are the harnesses just lap bars or also some kind of OTSR (such as a vest attached to an overhead lap bar)?

    It's the Vekoma soft OTSR vest seen on Formula 1 at Energylandia ;)

    pretty sure it isn't, it's just the angle

    The drop is so weird. When you look at the drop from the profile view of the LIFT HILL, the drop is around 70-80 degrees. But if you look at the drop from a profile view of the DROP, then it's beyond vertical. The angle makes all the difference. Cannot wait to see this thing run

    What seems to happen is what happened to me the first time I tried a drop like that in FVD++. (I was sort of mimicking Expedition GeForce.) As you roll in a force zone with negative Gs, the track pitches beyond vertical in a weird way that doesn't happen for a straight drop.

    I half think that's what Vekoma has done.

    And if it looks beyond vertical from the drop, it's beyond vertical. That's the only vantage point that matters.

    I'm absolutely adamant they stated that it was beyond vertical when it was announced.

    This shows it best imo, looks like the spine goes slightly left indicating a tiny bit of vertical droppage. Don't remember there being anything confirmed by the park before though.

    This could also be a fluke of heartlining. The heartline of the coaster may be vertical, but the track might have to do some funky twists to make that so.

    Ohh I really like how old school they look. The OTSRs can go die, obviously, but the trains are fab.

    Does it really matter though? As long as it rides superbly ^^

    Anyway, one more picture from SSC:
