    Every time I see this I just wish more and more it wasn't a spinner and what they could've done with just more normal launched coaster.

    that said, it looks like it'll be a decent drop in the back and probably pretty creepy going down backwards

    Oh I completely agree! But from the video before last, the drop was slowed completely for the first half of the train. It looks like it'll take almost all force out of the drop if you're unlucky enough to sit in that half of the train. But again, we'll have to wait and see for ourselves to be sure.

    I think if there were few enough trims that the front two cars had good airtime on the drop though, the back two would have borderline unsafe airtime.

    Wasn't saying the train would ever have good airtime on the front, I'm saying the front cars are controlled right up until the pullout, which to me seems unnecessary but they've obviously done it to that extent for a reason.

    Mack can't turn themselves into Intatrim. I don't have a good name lined up for that yet.

    Cheers Dave, looks :emoji_poop: though. The launch stop absolutely ruins the ride.

    The pacing is rather bizarre...

    Does it have seperate load/off-load?

    I... I don't love it...

    I want to see it with riders, as they may cause some more intense spinning.

    Why you'd bring the train to a dead spot without a show scene is beyond me. It absolutely kills the momentum of the ride - YAY, drop, spinning, oh we're stopping for absolutely no reason whatsoever. Fab.

    Even if it was like Manta at SeaWorld on the second launch, that isn't as bad as the train completely hauling.

    Apart from that pause before the first launch, I think it looks ace, love it.
    Genuinely looking forward to riding this. 12 weeks to go :)

    Pacing is certainly interesting. Bit odd that it stops before the launch, my concern was how slow it ran through the inversions. This things gonna have major hangtime! I mean, it might just be because they’re running one train for the shoot or it’s not warmed up, but either way it looks a little underpowered.

    I think the stop is there so the cars have time to align with the track before the train launches. The cars don't appear to spin during the launch, so they are probably locked to one direction to avoid uncomfortable laterals.
