Possible but is it not possible that its edited because it is where you would watch an onride video (screens are over the track) and the video element is not yet working.

However, that POV is truly brilliant - so many near misses!

As long as they theme that tunnel ill be happy, because it just looks like your inverting through a tin shed at the minute


The whole indoor section will be dark so I don't think you will see much :)

No, I would have been surprised if there was one given what we have seen so far.
[spoiler]White walls inside i think pretty much confirms 3D mapping effects inside, plus possibly in the tunnel leading to the lift.[/spoiler]

I have to say .... was sat here and as it flew past the flasher for the first time i genuinely thought i was going to have to fork out £500 for a new laptop .... it was so close it's unreal  :shock:

They are going to have to be SO strict with the height limit on this it's going to be unreal

I'll be honest even if there isn't a secret element, are we all really bothered? Has anyone SEEN this thing? It's huge! And it's a world record holder! Just look at it and look forward to riding, it's going to be amazing!

And yeah, it's going to feel like you're going like 100mph through some of those inversions, and especially over those airtime hills!  :D

Nope! Actually quite relieved. No back pokers, leg whips or other 4d nonsense. Just a world beating coaster with an incredible layout and a unique theme.

In response to that video of the full pov, apart from the fact none of the marmaliser effects are on... the video cuts out before the 2nd lift hill... defo think something will happen there.

Also note, the train shown in the station is different to the one on the track.
a) No goPro on the one in the station
b) Pretty sure that's a woman screaming on the first loop

thats not the link i saw here is the central tv POV shows you a lot more of inside the station and the train starts from inside the station

This is a full POV from the beginning, do not click the spoiler unless you wish to view it. Thanks

Edited by kirsty25 - put a spoiler warning in for the spoiler text


Ok, I'll admit there is no washing machine - Yes I'm wrong but thank god for that! :D

One I still believe there is a SE becuase the said themselves there is a SE, the wont and CAN'T lie ( a little thing called the law... ;) ) and it did skip for a few secs! The lights were on and it still looks unconstructed in the indoor section, and it's JW final coaster he was settel for amazing he will settel for SEJJSKKALEKSK GRAEAHAJA THERE ARE NO WORDS TO DESCRIBE IT AMAZING! ;D anyway I think there is more too see! Well, I hope and I'm not I will pay for it myself and have them put it in haha ;)

I hope the one shown on TV is better quality than this.  Looks like it was filmed on a 10 year old mobile phone, not a GoPro!!
