There won't be any stairs. If the coaster needs to be evacuated, Wonder Woman will come rescue everyone.

I'm sure both the park and the manufacturer have a contingency plan in for lift-hill evacuations. There's no way they would've been granted permits without one. Not all coasters evacuate lift hills with staircases (ex: Eurofighters).

^I swear, April has a relevant quote for every situation!

As for the catwalks, there were also none on the final brake run (in the concept video) either, so I’m not sure how seriously we should take that video. With that being said, there also doesn’t appear to be any connections/braces to place catwalks (I mean, the track is already so incredibly thin). Who really knows.
