    Was there ever a discussion that it was..? Not being facetious, genuinely asking.

    Yes, in the simulation provided by the park it was a stall but with the entrance and exit in other direction. Like really long Zero-G Roll

    I think you're perceiving the angle of the video and speed of the train to looking like a stall? I see it as a slow zero-G roll, that's why I was a little confused.

    There's something about Gerstlauer's shaping of the track that's just really weird to me? They feel like they're just not as controlled and uniform as other manufacturers. I know that this has been picked on in the past, but the final inversion of this really shows it.

    They use Planet Coaster to design their coasters, obviously. ;)

    It just always feels like they're not as restricted in shaping? Really slack and sloppy when it comes to shaping of elements and profiling.

    I like it though. It's unique to the company, and some of those transitions will likely feel as wacky as they look.

    I'm not the biggest fan, to be honest. "Wacky" transitions that aren't best controlled most of the time do not have a great feeling to them... looking at most Gerstlauer's out there...

    I think the transitions look fine. The transition into the dive loop looks like it'll be fantastic on the outside seats. Also the wave turn looks really good and pronounced as well. It'll be interesting to see what that feels like backwards.

    I like the shaping but hate the fact that so much of it is two-tube

    I'm curious how many feet of track will actually be traversed in a single ride cycle, due to the semi-shuttle aspect of the ride. I'd estimate around 2,300-2,500ft.
