Once again I am back to defend this coaster
Okay, so, I will go about 4 weeks back to start off. BGW Fans did a picture update of the construction, and upon seeing the photo below, I will admit I was slightly concerned!
The image shows the track starting to work its way up towards the drop over the river, and if you look in the far background you can just see a support in place for the accent towards the bridge. Now to me at the time this support didn't look anywhere near tall enough to be able to give enough height on the bridge to produce a decent drop, which really did worry me quite a lot!
However a few weeks later this picture emerged;
Which filled me with hope, the angle of the track onto the bridge feature was a lot steeper than I was expecting, thus making the drop a fair bit taller than first imagined!
So now we have the pictures of the completed drop, which many seem to have a problem with;
Okay, so admittedly it doesn't quite look as impressive as BBW used to
But we have to remember it is a family coaster, and it isn't suspend either, it has been designed to give a completely different experience and be a totally different coaster! But, as seen above with BBW, who know's the drop could look more impressive when a few trees grow around it.
Also, I think it does depend which angle you view it from as I personally think that it looks rather imposing in the picture below.
And not forgetting the track after the drop remains very low for a while with a few good twists in it, which should give some good speed! But as with any coaster, it is best to reserve judgement until it it ridden, or at least until we see some movement on it to get an idea of the speed. So just be patient people!
