I knew they're removing the triple helix from 01:25 to 02:12, but I thought they were keeping the section at 0:2:32 to 02:48. If that's also going then the brake run will have a completely different layout that I didn't think would be possible. :?

Yeah, and it seems that it would come in screaming into the break run if that were the case, which I can't imagine. I assume there to be a small section of hills, kind of like the end of Giant up there. It would just be too abrupt. I seem to recall that in the first rendering, it showed in the background a small set of hills.

Why can't this have a helicopter flying over so we could see the layout. :roll:

Yea, that first drop is going to be insane! Plus the severe openess of the trains will add in the "Oh ****..." thought!

So excited about this xD

Reminds me of Renegade's first drop. Except this one might actually work. ;)

This is why this is the most exciting coaster of the year for me.

That looks. Odd.

Almost looks like there's a small bunny hop by the second bracket outwards working down. Doesn't look like a smooth sort of drop and pull out.

Everyone also thought the small hill before the first overbank on Giant would be too intense/small/pointless, when it isn't.

That drop is absolutely fantastic looking. How it hugs the wall and the twists, just yes please. I can't wait to see a reverse POV of it, considering you won't get a feel for the amount of air from a normal one.

That's not terribly far off the original Rattler's first drop as originally built, and before it was neutered.

...And that's a good thing.

Wow. That's about all I can say. Wow. This will be one of the most exciting coasters to ride ever just because of a first drop like that.

Not to mention it hits the brake run straight out of the tunnel. This thing is going to be a pretty quick, and hopefully balls to the wall intense.

That last photo has all kinds of hot noise from a poor blurring attempt on photoshop...

At any rate, this coaster looks unreal. Just looking at the massive elements being propped up by seemingly minuscule supports - it is a wild layout!

That looks like it will feel very interesting going through that Zero-G Roll.

I wonder if all of RMCs Zero-Gs will look like that, or if they will eventually change into what we normally see.
