I am willing to hope that this park will be exactly like how Japan does things, and out-theme
anything that's out there, as a flyer coaster. How they'll design and build the flying
dinosaurs that hold us up..... chills. I hope. :smile:

That drop definitely looks more intriguing than the long swooping drop found on most B&M flyers. Getting really interesting to follow the construction now that more and more of the layout is getting revealed.

I'm only used to Manta-style drops, very gentle, not much "swoop". This is going on my list! :b

"Yeah, I like coasters. Yes, I'm a kid. Don't know what the 211 means, but whatever." Check out my TR thread!

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

I LOVE that drop! But I'm kinda upset with all those twists... I want airtime or floating-time on a flyer, not rolls that have no purpose than to be disorienting and make me sick. :|

Portugal needs more old-school B&M's!!!

Interesting drop....
This is starting to look pretty nice.
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Don't make me kick you in the donkey!

It looks great! Swooping curves all around!
If Intamin made a donkey, it wouldn't be tame.....well for a year

The first element looks to be a 180 degree overbank. Anyone agree?

The coaster looks amazing!!! Can't wait to see more of it progress.

However I can't help but wonder... why is this person holding a closed umbrella up, like it's open?? Like... do they not know it's closed??
