That train looks so awesome! I assume the station has a moving floor, like for the B&M floorless coasters?

^IIRC, it does not. The winged seats are actually above the station floor on either side.

I don't think so. Intamin never uses moving floors on any coasters, not even impulse models. A similar coaster, Baco, also doesn't feature retractable floor and works perfectly well.

Was in the park today for an event and they were working on the pull through all day. Last I saw they let the train roll down from the middle of the really over banked turn near the first drop around 2:30. It started raining around 5:00, not sure how far they got before it hit. It's really hard to see the big chunk of the ride from anywhere in the park, but what you can see looks awesome.

Why would try risk damaging the train?
