It's like a scaled up, steel El Toro. It definitely looks like it wants to kill you in the best possible way.

Interesting that they went with several smaller supports for the lift hill rather than one massive beam like skyrush or I305.
Anyway, it's looking amazing! And I still can't believe all they're adding in such a short period of time
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?

They also did it with Coaster through the clouds so maybe they did it to avoid the sag? Since I305's lift hill has started to sag from the middle pretty significantly and maybe that's undesirable

I will provide you with maximum pleasure.

I recall seeing a picture from the top of I305s lift hill looking down into the station, and you could see how much the track bowed and flexed. Although I'm sure this part of the design, and there's nothing wrong with it. I doubt this decision has anything to do with it. Maybe it's a different track type, maybe there's different costs associated with it.

If it was a picture, it was probably just lens distortion from the camera. You can't really tell from photos if a line is straight or not.

The hype is REAL. Hey, maybe that's why they named it Hyperion.

I'll see myself out now.

That drop is definitely giving me Skyrush vibes with that "lip" after disconnecting from the lift hill. Looks fantastic!
