Agreed. I wasn't sure how it would look, but that's really grown on me. It looks much better with the 'real' 3D relief of on it, rather than the 2D printed graphics. I think that might be what makes it look so much better.

Just out of curiosity, which sections on IG are believed to be the dead spots?
I spotted a point just before the downward spiral which looked a little dead and the big deadspot just before the last airtime hill before the brakes. That's the main one, it's one of those where the ride should be ending as the speed is nearly gone but somehow they sneak in an airtime hill before the end.
But again, this is just based on an animated POV, one which may have been updated, the real POV will give a better indication and the proof will be in the riding.

SV manages the flow and length really well, the only real deadspot is the MCBR but it serves the ride well as a catch your breath moment before the bat**** 2nd half.
Zadra has so much speed and hits the elements so quickly that there are no deadspots.

That doesn't seem right. They haven't even finished the trackwork yet, let alone testing... I really doubt they can accomplish all that in one month.

Everyone said that about Zadra, and they managed it with that ride! I also remember Wildfire at Kolmarden having a similarly tight pre-opening schedule, so it definitely seems to be a bit of a trend with RMCs!

Neither of those had to contend with American regulations though. However, sea world has been doing really well with quick construction so since I'll be there at the end of March, I'm certainly pulling for it to happen in time. Knowing my luck though, it will open the next week.

Everybody (myself included) said they wouldn’t open Zadra by the first date floating around, as it left only a week or 2 for testing... We were right, it didn’t open by that date! It opened later (although granted, not a lot later, was it a week or 2?)
