Coasters always look slow from the air, plus it's testing so you can't really tell anything about the speed yet.

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

I know Merlin tends to over-hype all of their attractions, but that looks totally sick.

That looks amazing, though I'm skeptical they'll keep producing fog at that level a year or two into this ride's existence.

Whoa!!! That looks amazing!!!

Sadly, I too am skeptical at how long they will keep up those amazing effects.

Even my wife, who has been known to be less than impressed when I send her photos of coasters, says "Wow! That looks incredible!".

Now just to convince her to hop the pond. ;)

Christopher Lee would be so proud! This coaster should appeal to pagans and non-pagans, alike! :devil:
