It isnt made by a 14 year old. Ollie from coaster force knows the uploader, the uploader isnt who made the video. Also, I dont see any spelling mistakes. =/

This has been considered before in detail, the main argument against being the distinctive pieces of V shaped attachment to the ends of the track before the area was enclosed. These, whatever they are (and it's mooted that they are the means by which the track disconnects/attaches) obviously serve the same purpose on each level, and therefore cast extreme doubt on there having been a track extension on the lower level.


This theory relies on the fact that the moving section will not only move up and down but forwards and backwards, and given the size of the building and the limitations as to how much it can move forwards and backwards, it would be extremely impractical for them to gear the technology for such a small movement (The offset distance) when they can make it do a simple up, down motion as is shown in the video.

Yep I'm recording it using my trusty PlayTV, and will upload it as soon as I can. Can't wait to see what it shown - I'm pretty excited for Saturday now! :D

Well I'm in work for 6 myself and I'm gonna have the TV on under the desk so I don't miss it. Hope It's on more towards the beginning as oppose to the end though so I don't get fired. =/

I really hope none of the effects were on during the preview, I'm guessing they weren't. It doesn't look that promising.

That was possibly the most disappointing rollercoaster ever. None of the effects were working (if there are any) and the speed was ridiculous. Double short vertical drop, wow. Not worth the wait.

I hope so to, otherwise i think we'll be dissapointed.

My only thought is it might do like tower of terror in florida and have a unique drop everytime?
If I had a signature it would be delayed just like the smiler

Could have been better tbh. Hope they get the theming up in time and suprised they showed it on national tele without the theming complete.

when i heard 'WORLDS FIRST VERTICAL DROP' i thought blivvy had been forgotten, but it turned out to be more of a freefall coaster, ToT fans won't like it :P
im half gutted aswell though, cause i didn't really want to see what the inside was like, oh well, the building looks great, and a big fan of the closing door inside :D :P

Comon guys! Non of us can possibly comment until we have ridden Thirteen...

The special effects were clearly not switched on and as we already know will play a huge part in this ride, so we've only seen half the ride so to speak :D
