The way you sit in SheiKra it doesn't feel like a floor on it at all. This doesn't feel the same, but aren't there any stats being released on this coaster?

Height? Length? Elements (besides the immelman)?

Looks great to me! Who cares if it's a clone, or semi-clone? If a design's good, then why whine about duplicating it with a slight enhancement like floorless cars? Heck, I don't hear anyone ever whining about the Batman clones. They're still considered the "golden age" beemers, right? Back when they were forcefull, blah blah blah. ;)

Congrats to Busch for another superb coaster to compliment an already great park!

Btw, great logo as well. :P

it will also feature 2 Immelmann loops. That will make it stand out a little more then sherkia. The second drop is not 90 degrees.

What the hell is a climbing carousel? Is it a helix?
