Here we have both forwards and BACKWARDS POV of the ride!

I'm a bit confused by the $10 upcharge for the backward facing seats.

Do they literally take payment at the gate of the ride? Or do you pay for it at the admission gate? Is it "per ride" or do you get a pass for the day?

That being said, the ride itself looks phenomenal.

The theming of the queue is meh for me, looks a little too Six Flagsish. But hey, for me, if the ride itself kicks ass, I always look past it. Minimal shade too. WOULD IT KILL THEM TO PUT UP SOME SHADE!???!

Per ride.

I believe they are in the process of putting in shade sails.

I never paid this coaster the slightest attention, even though I'm very interested in Mack hypers. Sounds like it's a top-class ride! I'd definitely ride backwards at least (and probably only) once--I never miss a chance to go backwards on a coaster if I can help it. I'll be very happy if similar designs start popping up.

You buy a wristband from either the park's photo booth or out the front of the ride to ride backwards, they give you a time slot to show up in and you ride it then. It's only valid for one ride.

There are poles set up in the queue, so I'm sure shade isn't too far off.

This looks fantastic. The ride is so much longer than I expected! The backwards-facing seats are also interesting. Movie World has a winner!

Looks like an awesome ride! I'm loving the look of a train traveling through these non-inverting loops!!
