    If by "multiple" you mean "2" - then I'd say that's the most popular thought as of now.

    What if this isn't a spinner? It could just be a regular launch coaster, similar to Helix.

    It's a spinner, look at the concept art earlier in the thread.

    Because the park had said this will be a "first of its kind" and a "regular launched coaster, similar to Helix" has been done before.

    I might be overstepping here, but let's stick to discussion and update photos so that the people who want to find the latest on the ride don't have to shift through numerous posts like what you are proposing.

    Can I just ask why everyone is guessing about 90ft? Am I missing something here?

    ^The height of the station is already very high up, which indicates a drop out of the station. This seriously decreases the likelihood of the ride needing to go up that high. It can certainly go higher than the station height, but it shouldn't need to go any more than maybe 30 feet over it.

    Tokyo's Joypolis already got that title in 2012 - https://rcdb.com/6453.htm

    I'd be surprised if this didn't have a launched section though.

    First multiple launched spinner with multiple inversions?

    Frankly, I hope they don't really go for any of that sort of marketing. Just make the ride really :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing good, and it'll market itself!
