And some might say "well the first lift hills fins are more spaced out" - of course they are, the ride car wouldn't be able to accelerate down the normal lift hill as fast as it would down the vertical which is why there are less fins.
And with this statement you have just agreed there will be some rolling down the lifthill, you're right, the speed will be less on the first lift, that's why we see smaller and less fins. To duel correctly a train must leave both lifts at the same time, so if there's a freefall on the vertical, there will be something to make up that time on the 1st hill too, so the trains leave at the same time
Yes it will allow the trains to move back, for evacuation purposes. The train is not going to freefall down the hill.
How do you seem to know so much? As I'm pretty sure that at least 99.5% of us on this forum haven't actually got a clue in reality
I dont know, thats my opinion, A freefall is impossible with these fins as they are fixed.

No one has seen an on ride photo point yet, it's unlikely to be integrated into the flasher because in theory the flasher will be using a different type of bulb (and different light output) to what the camera will be setup to use. It may be in the indoor barrel roll area though.
As for the shop with the glass floor, you've pretty much hit the nail on the head with location and placement of said glass floor, we've seen floor glass delivered but no confirmation if the glass floor from the plans will still be going ahead, but the delivery of floor glass makes it seem more likely.
