The theming of the distorted objects is actually pretty cool!

The penultimate photo kind of reminds me of the black hole tent though :lol

Whoa that's kind trippy. The themeing on this is actually quite impressive, especially the van being sucked into the hole.

The distorted objects, in particular the van, is very nice indeed. But the entrance looks horrendous.. so temporary looking.

A full video of the ride has been released, although it doesn't show a full forwards POV.

The effect of the distorted van as riders go whizzing past looks amazing, but the overall ride area lacks any impact and to me, still looks ridiculously undone. That outdoor queue fencing in particular is a bit of an eyesore. That said, I am withholding my full judgement for opening day.

I'm underwhelmed by that. Its pacing looks slow through all the elements.

I'm sorry but...
I don't like the look of the coaster! It's slow, hideous to look at, bad theming and it stole Oblivion.

The theming looks good, but I do hope that it's only going that slow because it's still in testing. The Smiler really struggled to complete a circuit during it's testing phase (some might say it still does but that's for another topic)

Once the wheels have ran themselves in and the train is fully loaded I'm sure it'll pick up some more speed through that final inversion.

Sounds like another Flug Der Damonen to me. Looks amazing, expected to be good, turns out to crawl through the elements.

I take it this is open now or are the people riding it from press etc? TPR have a video on their YouTube channel.

Yeah, it opened today. Looks well themed and slightly faster than it was in the previous footage.

The theming as we've seen on the outside is decent but now TPR has posted a video showing the interior theming elements and tbh the theming is much better than the coaster itself.

I think you will find that's it is TPW rather than TPR haha, I'm very glad that they have got the subway - hole* - properly working with strobes and mist as seen on this POV -
