There are supposed to be reversing sections so you do part of the ride backwards.

I'm just curious... do the transfer tracks have the 'stopper' on them, or is this for the reverse section?

I'm even more excited about this than i can already be. lol
YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!'

That track looks like Intamin. If it was B&M it would be thicker. What car park was it in?

^The track is Intamin, it's been confirmed that it's Intamin building the ride.

Interesting observation - the track looks very similar but not sure if SW6 has intended water elements? I think this will be a more one off build hopefully with some unique elements not seen before.

Can't wait for my next visit to Alton Towers end of October to check out construction.
