It's nice to see RMC's new train design get picked up again on a new coaster.

Anyone know what the selling point differences are? Is one more articulate than the other? I'm just a little curious since Hakugei and Twisted Cyclone use the old design.
Steel: 176 / Wood: 32 / Total: 208
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

^ I'm thinking it has something to do with when the coaster was actually ordered and if the new design was available at the time.

Can I park my donkey here?

Wow, I am hyped about this ride. It starts to look better and better with each update. The 270and back again roll with the 90 degrees outside bank looks insane. I'm really curious how it rides!

So, is the 270* roll something like a banana roll, but the exits are 90* to each other instead of parallel? Am I getting that right?

As far as I know the ride makes a left 270 degrees roll, than has an outside banked 90 degrees part and then it will probably make another 270 roll to the right. So, roll, airtime, roll.

So yes, pretty much an inside-out banana roll. That sounds like a pretty wicked element! I didn’t think RMC could keep topping themselves.

I've been reading some reports that Lost Gravity is down waiting for some new parts. Has anyone else heard about this?

Yes, that is indeed true. They have got no idea when it will reopen.

Together with Lost Gravity, Spinning Vibe has been closed since the start of this season. Earlier this week, it was announced that Blast (Huss Topspin) would also be stationary in the coming period.
