    There's no way they don't smack a trim on there. This felt like watching the Xcelerator 100 mph tests Just too fast for its own good.

    Holy :emoji_poop:. Even looks like something flew off during that ridiculous airtime hill.

    This is going to be one of the scariest coaster experiences on the planet.

    Wow! Um... that is quite possibly one of the fastest coaster first test runs I've ever seen! Only thing I can think of that even came close in terms of pacing is Mako's first test run without the trim and the MCBR! I personally don't see RMC trimming this ride, as trims don't seem like a very RMC thing to do, if you get what I mean.

    @DelPiero - you seen this f***ing thing?
    Is it too late to change our itinerary?

    That's got to be trimmed, like, surely?

    I know RMC are mental but they can't actually murder people.

    Jeez that's mental. Like something you'd design back in RCT where you purposefully make elements too small so the ride flies through things too quickly. Really do wonder if they'll trim it or something somewhere, or if that's really how they'll leave it.

    Still looks ugly as though.

    There's no way this opens at the speed in that vid.

    The first half is absolutely obscene but the corkscrew at the end is a moderate speed. I can't see how much slower they could make the ride yet still have it clear the corkscrew or avoid OTT hangtime which I'm sure RMC won't want so I'm optimistic this is a similar speed to how it opens.

    I think that might be a perspective trick, to be honest. The corkscrew is going away from the camera in the clip, and is actually a very long element (see GuyWithAStick's photo above). I reckon it's still absolutely flying through it.

    I mean, that s-bend hill looks obscene at that speed. I can't say I'd actually be too excited to ride it at this speed, I think it would just hurt!

    I get the feeling they’ll change the wheels to slow it down rather than opting for a trim. They’ll modify bearings and wheel compound.

    Well, this is the same company that had Storm Chaser running fine and then decided to put different wheels on it that sped it up so much it causes moments of life flashing before your eyes.

    Hm. I’m now seeing news sources with the phrases “later this Spring” and “in April.” Doesn’t look good for me.

    Frustrated. :mad:

    Have they trimmed it? Or have they just changed the wheels?
