All clear....

^^^^I doubt it. If Werner Stengel was involved in the project there is at least hope, though.

It's opener is almost a mirror to Oz'Iris, no B&M pre-dip and the first inversion is a dive loop.

Most of the TPR 2012 Europe trip participants found Oz'Iris to be a huge bore...hoping Herr Stengel (aka Mr. Forceful) has an influence on this one.

Ooooh! It has a batwing - but it's not a batwing! Awesome!

The only thing that I'm not feeling is the slow non-heartlined twisty thingie after the second loop, but only because it looks weird.

EDIT: NEW TRAINS. NEW INVERTED TRAINS. Does this mean that we'll be seeing the new seats on every B&M coaster from now on?

Couldn't have gone for the 8th inversion to break the record? Looks amazing though.

At first I thought the inline went through the second loop. Would've been cool. This looks good, I need to make it over to KI sometime.

Surprisingly, it looks to have some pretty forceful spots! That 2nd vertical loop (though just a rendering) looks to be taken pretty quick. Same with batwing-ish element.

Why do I still have a donkey title???
