The LSMs don't cover the entire strip though like on Blue Fire, so they probably won't be anymore terrible than the other two Mack's with this launch setup, but there won't be any force on these launches whatsoever.
Yh true. So maybe they'll replace it with Australia's Tallest Swing Ride: Star Flyer/S&S Screamin SwingUnfortunately, given Tower of Terror's minimal footprint, I don't see Dreamworld replacing it with anything. It's essentially taking up an extremely long but narrow plot of land suitable for hardly anything else, and since its construction the railroad as well as Mick Doohan's MotoCoaster have been located right next to it. This park now has 3 launch coasters, so I don't exactly see Dreamworld replacing Tower of Terror II with another one - or even a record breaking coaster, for that matter - as parks have now moved onto the most unique ride experiences, rather than the tallest, fastest or longest. Still, to lose one of the 7 operating giga coasters worldwide would be a bit of a bummer, especially the only one in the Southern Hemisphere.

It is worth noting, however, that Ardent has also halted all non-essential CAPEX for the time being due to COVID-19; I’d imagine that the construction costs may potentially fall under this. However, I agree with you in saying that they could definitely still achieve late 2020; if the ride’s on site, they may as well put it up.I'd bet they're still on track for a late 2020 opening. Remember - the seasons are flipped in the southern hemisphere. Their parks are gearing up for the summer months as ours close for winter.
I went there on Saturday and the plot of land where it will be still had no activity.Many months later, seems like construction beginning is just around the corner:-
Potentially it is going to go to full speed on the 3rd launch then on the midcourse trim slightly like you do on the usual BF model, the POV certainly makes it look like that
A couple of extra stats, length is 1200m rather than 1065m, top speed is 105km/h not 100km/h.
The latter has me intrigued.....Is it going to launch faster to get up the reverse spike and then the 3rd launch does nothing, or is it going to do the layout faster in general and get trimmed? Or launched faster to account for the weight of the spinning car?
