I like the trenches and speed, but as of now I am not a fan of that figure-8 maneuver in the 3rd video. Can't wait to see this thing actually run though!

I think this one's gonna be all about the trains for me. Maverick's trains are pure evil in blister packaging, Millennium's are heaven.

I know more about donkeys than women!

Well looking at the diagram of the station, it looks like it has 8 rows instead of 6. I'm sure it has the same OTSRs though.

I remember seeing a couple of the leaked plans that showed trains with OTSRs. Doesn't seem there will be the Millennium Force level of freedom so many of us love. Now get ready for the foam vs. soft restraint argument...

I was waiting for someone to pick up on that... Apparently, the film crew cracked up when I said that... Not what I meant, but it added to the comedy of the thing. :butt:

Interesting.

This diagram shows two loading platforms with 8 rows each but they are segmented off by fours so it looks like the ride will have 4-car trains. There's also a "blockbrake" marking on the section before Rhino Rally.

That's what was odd to me. Since when has a coaster car ever had four rows?

It is 4 cars with two rows each, 16 people per train.

Not unheard of on a few wooden coasters, to have a four row car. The Coney Island Cyclone, the Nickelodeon Streak (FKA Roller Coaster) and Big Dipper at Blackpool Pleasure Beach both have four row cars and when the Beast first opened, it had four seat cars. However, I'm not aware of any 4 seat steel coasters. Peace! KC
