One thing I'm wondering is will this have boats like pilgrims plunge, or a coaster car with skimmers to make a splash effect?
I won't stop riding roller coasters when I get old. I'll get old when I stop riding roller coasters!

How exactly will this be a roller coaster? There is no room for upstop wheels to keep the train from flying off (as seen in several close ups of the drop). I'm right with you australianalex. Also, am I the only one who thinks this ride is an eye sore?

I think you just need to trust intamin with it. They know what they're doing and wouldn't do something if they hadn't made sure it would work (at least some of the time in a few of their coasters cases...) and it would be safe. I do agree about the colors though...

The center bar on the track will serve as an upstop.

People seem to be afraid of color. I think the colors are beautiful.

I believe he means that a lot of USA members are think that a coaster needs a bright track color, and a grey/black/tan support scheme. This obviously breaks that trend and a lot of members haven't come to grips with that yet.

Yes, I too have very low expectations for a 180 foot tall Intamin Water coaster Prototype that hasn't yet been more than 20% constructed with no evidence as to what the rest of the layout will be. :roll:


My expectations aren't up in Cloud9 or Fanboy Paradise, but this is Intamin we're talking about. When was the last time one of their major coasters didn't deliver?

Yes I have low expectations. A water coaster can only be so good IMO.
