Anyway, thanks to everyone for the pictures and the constant updates. I do think however it's unlikely we are getting a launched lift. Just looking at the latest photos posted by Capt Barnacles and also from referring to the plans, and the foundations, you can see there is a turn with a very tight radius directly after the lift hill with little to no banking. I think we'll most likely just see a LSM lift hill. Something like Maverick? It could possibly be a bit quicker than your average woodies lift, but nothing crazy.

Not sure about Overbanked but certainly there is a good degree of banking on them, i think that with that banking the lift could well be launched to some certain degree.
