My main thought was that the station and the launch track are directly aligned. so in order to have a spike you'd either have to move the station out of that allignment or have an sbend out of the station around any new spike and then some kind of switch track or transfer track to get the train into the launch track. Either way it's a bit of work.I mean ultimately, you could use a simple switch track a la Pantheon.
Granted, if LSMs were on the table, TTD could very well have the runway length needed to make the 400 ft. climb. But why not dream big on new element feature? ;P
Here's something that will never happen but makes a nice thought experiment.
Is there any reasons apart from having to change our all the brakes and wiring that you couldn't run the ride the other way round?
Train comes out of the station and turns 180 degrees to the right through a switch track into the new swing launch track, then launches up the side with the spiral and drops into brakes where the launch used to be.
Would negate the issue with having to add an sbend or move the station.
