Video from TubeRides' Youtube channel of the ride testing, including POV footage. At the moment riders are wearing wetsuits, helmets and possibly back protection, but not sure if this is just for the testing stage or whether this would be a permanent requirement.

I still quite like the appeal of not knowing when you're going to stop/start although it's probably a 'once and done' kinda experience. We'll see - it's certainly an interesting concept!


Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I don;t have a clue what the price tag on one of these things is but it looks like something that has "Six Flags Clone" written all over it haha.

That POV makes the slide look much more enjoyable than the rendering did. Looks like it would be a fun experience!! :br
Bigger is not always better.

I love donkeys more than me.

I agree the POV looks a lot more fun than the rendering did, but it's clear they edited out the portions of the ride where you stall / rock back and forth until the next drop. I'm sure it was just to reduce the video length and focus in on the more thrilling aspects of the ride, but I'm still curious how the full length of the ride experience will feel, stalls and all. I'd still definitely give it a try, at least.
