Katun (and Raptor) have a 90° turn at the top of their drops, but with the majority of the rest of the drop being straight. They do feel very different (I've only ridden Raptor), and I prefer them slightly, but there's not much in it. I think you get a better sense of the rapid speed gain with a straight drop - which I prefer.
The drop for Banshee is bottomed out now. It looks great on the Webcam, especially since it's a nice sunny morning today.
Do you guys think they will build the coaster in a line, or do other sections start to be erected soon? (Not really familiar with construction of coasters) The reason I ask is I know they didn't do the wing coaster at Heide Park in "order" from start to finish. I'd really like to see how tall that first dive, and vertical loop are going to look.
