That looks excellent! Airtime all the way through, and this is only a test-run! Also that drop looks phenomenal. EGF 2?

Shame that visually it looks like a TOGO coaster. :P

What? I love intamins new track and I much prefer it to the normal tri rail. And for a test run that looked really fast. Looks like this is packed with airtime. :D

Looks a real good layout, and the drop looks epic. That first turn looks really intense.

However, I do hope they speed the lift- it's painfully slow.

That seems really odd for Intamin  :?

The track looks like nothing I've seen by them before and the train is a copy of B&M's new trains. What's the worlds first element?

Looks good, nowhere near enough airtime hills.

Looks a fairly standard layout tbh- I was expecting something a little better from Intamin. However, there are some bits in this ride that are exceptional- my favourite bit is at 0:40, that over-banked turn looks great, and I'm still loving the look of the first bend. The drop is very steep indeed- does anyone know the exact figures?

I agree, there's literally only 3 hills worth noting- not good enough for a Intamin hyper :no:

Looks ok. The overbank at 0:40 looks like the highlight, but the section after it really could do with tightening and quickening up, as could most of the rest of the ride. Bit of a bland procession of s-hills, really.

But it's decent.

This completely redefines the term 'hyper coaster' for me. After the initial drop it stays quite low, instead of tonnes of airtime it seems to be riddled with forceful seat pinning corners.

I find it quite intriguing, be interesting to see how it rides. Guess I'll have to wait until 2013.

There may not be many, but those hills pull -2g...

To put it in perspective, EGF and El Toro max out at -1.4gs... That more than makes up for it.

The lapbar trains look crap though.

I do like Intamin's use of the RCT3 auto-complete function at the end of the ride!

Otherwise, it looks like great fun, shame it's an ocean away!

Looks wobbly on a mounted camera... Not a good sign really, as wasn't the addition of the floor meant to alleviate the vibration issues?

The need an absorber on these things [/makingmydegreeworthwhile]

And i thought Hocus Pocus Hall was trippy. If you got the spin just right, it would be quite trippy. Thanks for that Andy. :)
