    This coaster just looks so good, aesthetically. Kind of expecting it to be a bit slow because it's Mack (only done Icon and Enterprise) but it has a really interesting layout. Wonder how long it will be before a test run, obviously I understand that they haven't finished the transfer track etc but I wonder if they'll wait until the weather is warmer to run it so it could be quite a while, potentially a number of months.

    I like alot about this coaster.

    What I do not like is that top hat. I was hoping it would look better once built but nah, it might be how it enters the element high up. It will be a fun hangtime moment though...

    Yeah! Hangtime is amazing! Some of the best hangtime ever is the back rows of Riddler's Revenge, especially on an empty train.

    I feel hang time is marmite. You truly either love it or hate it.

    I'd love to look at the most recent photos here, but I didn't enjoy Carowinds personally.

    All joking aside, this looks great. I'm not a hangtime person, but that inversion looks amazing

    It’all definitely be unique. You double up into it, then you take a tight curve which will produce some g’s, and then it hangs you for a good two seconds. That’s a variety of sensations for one element of the ride.

    Yeah I'm also not fond of how that cutback looks, but let's hope it rides nicely.
