    Thanks for posting this, I've been wondering when this thing would show up again!

    Looks pretty meh though tbh. Not sure which looks more dull though, this or Star Trek :/

    It's allowing members of the SMT on as we speak. So I don't think it'll be far off before it opens.

    Mack launches are so damn weak, is there even one good one out there?
    Apart from the launch, that doesn't look too bad, certainly looks better than Star Trek imo.

    Came across this sneaky POV of Capitol Bullet Train on YouTube. Isn't the best POV, but at least now we know the layout.

    Video by Tom Schmitz.

    Looks snappier than Blue Fire! Not bad for a little compact coaster actually :)

    I feel like this could be cloned very well.

    I agree. Looks arguably better than Star Trek? I hope Icon at BPB will have the same snap as this does. I think it might.

    It looks pretty good but the launches look terrible

    I think it’s a really good ride. The launch is slow but the airtime up the spike at the start is amazing. Particularly in the back.

    Yeah it definitely seems much better than Star Trek.

    I have to agree that it's much better looking than Star Trek. Shame about the (lack of) theming though, however the layout looks really fun. Definitely appears to be faster onside than on the offride video posted earlier on this page!

    The que line is pretty well themed. I’m there on Sunday so will post some photos of the q etc

    Found a great POV of Capitol Bullet train, by the one and only TPR!

    I could easily see a clone of this going somewhere. It's got the perfect layout.

    Two things to say about the video

    A) There's no Blobb so if you use AdBlock your fine
    B) Is the rattle coming from the camera mount or the train itself?

    ^It's the camera mount. But there does seem to be a slight miss-alignment of the right rail on the brake run.

    How meh.

    The amount of missed opportunities for theming around the outside section is sad. The coaster looks pretty boring as well.

    Whilst I agree that the (lack of) theming is sad, I honestly think this coaster looks fun! The spike is apparently pretty fab and I'd say the rest of the layout looks rather snappy, all thing considered. I think if the launches appeared more powerful at the start, people's opinions on it might possibly be quite different.

    It's fun, but not as fun (or complete) as Star Trek. The area has some theming, the coaster less so. Bit disappointing considering the richness of the source material.
