    Does anyone know, in terms of wider GP, what the hype is like for this? Is it going to draw in the same crowds as Helix?

    It must be the perspective. It's a lot smaller than it looks, after all. ;)

    What are those small pill-shaped holes for in the middle of the cross ties? I've never seen them on a B&M before.

    From the pictures above, they appear to be used to hoist the track pieces into place, maybe they are also used at the factory when assembling the pieces. They might also be used to fasten a climbing harness during routine inspection/maintenance of the track.

    Now THIS looks like it's going to be a lot of fun! What a flowing layout thus far!

    This 100% confirms Valkyria WILL have vest restraints:-

    Layout is looking nice and twisty, intrigued to see how the huge, cumbersome, sluggish trains look negotiating this.

    They are restrictive and tighten horribly when there's any positive Gs. They give the sense of freedom without giving it, I actually prefer the old OTSRs to these as I could defend myself from the earbashing, I can't stop the crushing these put on my chest however.

    ^ This.

    Banshee, X-Flight and Valravn have such offending vests.

    I heard somewhere that Valravn's vests don't actually lock, unlike the wing riders? Or is that utter bull :emoji_poop:?
