Yes it is! I remember back when Tatsu's pretzel loop was installed I was like OMG that's huge... but this will be awesome!

Will this drop get the record of steepest? Near the top, the train will be moving downward at a greater angle than Takabisha?

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

^ Thanks to those who posted the screenshots. Unless I get up at 5am I usually can only make out the floodlights. Stupid time difference. :angry:
