It looks kind of odd how this ride is just gettin' all up in Dragon Khan's business. :lol:
It's looking really awesome so far, though.

Does Jeff Johnson count this donkey as a credit?

I used to think that the coaster wouldn't look nice in this area, but... Holy cow! It looks more than amazing!

Did my donkey title just change???

I didn't love the colors at first but now this really is looking like a great combo.

I hope the vegetation around khan/shambhala grows back quickly!

Of course it might just be a perspective effect, but the second hill looks sharp in the last couple of pics. Also, it seems Shambhala is getting a low to the ground elongated hill before it reaches the second camelback. Very reminiscent of Leviathan hill through the trees. I have never ridden a B&M with this kind of low to the ground speed hill, as the others all seemed to be filled with hills of decreasing height one after another. Let's hope this part of the ride is surprisingly good, althoug I expect the carrussel helix to remove a large part of the energy the train has when hitting this element. But I'm very pleased with what I see so far !

I noticed that as well. That's an extremely tight apex for a B&M Hyper. Similar to Maverick. That's definately going to provide AMAZING airtime!
