I don't believe that's what he referring to. The drop on this and X-Flight fully invert further down the half loop (the tracks at about 90* when the half loop starts). It's slightly different than Gatekeeper and Swarm (where they reach the full 180* in the roll before entering the half loop). They're all still wing-over drops, but he was noting the shaping differences and similarities between the group.


Yes, I was noting how both this and X-Flight have a rounder drop than The Swarm or GateKeeper.

^ I have noticed that this usually happens when the track twists to the side to which the bottom of the drop goes. Let me explain better, on x-flight the track twists to the right and then the layout continues to the right of the lift (if you are on it), here it all happens to the left. On gatekeeper, the twist is to the right but then the immelmann is on the left side of the lift and on the swarm the twist is done to the left and then the track continues to the right. I don't know if I've made myself clear but what I mean is that when the track is fully inverted before the actual drop it means the coaster will then come out on the other side, if it isn't then the bottom of the drop will be on the side to which the track twised before.

(if you're facing the lift) twist to the left, bottom of the drop (and next element) on the left of the lift too

here the twist is to the left but the bottom of the drop and zero-g are located on the right of the lift
See what I mean?

That looks like a fun ride. Don't be expecting to get a lot of airtime on that hill because the harnesses on the wing coaster are very good at holipding you in tight and not letting you move around a lot.

And an other update found. 3 or 4 pieces left to go for full circuit.
Image
Airtime-hill is complete.
Image
The last pieces of track are brought to the construction site.
Image
Last part that needs to be done.
Image
Station goes into concrete.
Image
I noticed that the re-roofing has been but to a hold.
Image
The concrete.
Image
Is that scar deliberately or just from drying? Time will tell.
Image
Looks good.

For a permanent coaster, this has to be the fastest construction in a while. This thing just flew up there in no time. Huge props to the construction crew on this.

Wow! US Parks could really learn a thing or 300 from how most International parks get their rides up in plenty of time for opening day next season!
