    This new Mack is looking very exciting indeed! I rode both Alpina Blitz and Helix. Helix's hills deliver some good airtime and funky laterals, not as agressive as EGF or Taron but still very enjoyable. Alpina's twists are fairly agressive too, so I'm confident this new coaster will ride well.

    One extra picture of the twisted hill:

    And some non-inverted loop rumour going on at Parkz.com.au

    That is an awfully tight section of track - the non-inverting loop could be a good call!

    Going off the height difference between the big hill and the rest, that is going to be one seriously quick section of track!

    This coaster will look very, very nice I reckon :eek: And the colour scheme could become iconic, the vibrant pink blends so well with the surroundings imo!

    A helix has gone in that threads twice through what looks like the beginnings of a loop.

    I'm secretly hoping it's a non-inverting loop, I find the general loop quite boring.

    You are in luck then. Looking at the profile of the bottom of it, we can already rule out the regular vertical loop.

    On top of that, we can be pretty certain it's a non-inverting loop due to the shape and order of some of the pieces that have shown up so far:
    The piece on the far right here is labelled "43"; considering the pieces in that inclined-dive loop turnaround thing are numbered in the mid 70s, it makes mathematical sense for the track piece to be located in the loop.

    [​IMG]
    It seems to be very twisty which is a very good sign - could we even be seeing some airtime here?
    In other news, it looks like the brake run and some of the final supports before it are starting to go up:
    [​IMG]

    Although I'd say it's looking a little light on airtime so far, this is still shaping up to be an absolute cracker of a ride so far.

    (You can proabably guess the source is Parkz.com.au again)

    Would this be Mack's first non-inverting loop? I remember Intamin, Maurer and Premier building ones, but not Mack. I am curious to see how it would ride, the Sky Rocket II model at Holiday Park was meh, but this could be much more interesting with a bigger size, longer trains, and Mack's superior trackwork design.

    Parkz keeps hosting pictures. I can't resist showing them too! Sweet panoramas, and some progress on the helix around the loop:

    Triple post yeah! But seriously, I love this tangled bowl of steel, it will be very intense if the speed is good, and definitely less usual among hypercoasters :)

    That is a really odd advert. Intrigued as to what the theme is going to be now.

    We'll soon know for sure if the loop is inverting or not. I'm too lazy to look into detail the support structure :p
