The trains must be small. Maybe a single car? I'm saying this because the supports are very thin. Heavier/Longer train=More weight on the track and supports.

^Those supports actually look pretty similar to those Zierer kiddie coasters with the long@$$ trains

^While the trains are long, look at how small the cars are. Much smaller than most.

^Then have shorter trains on the Intamin! Blamo! The power of compromise!
And TBH, while Intamin family trains are 2 bench...the cars arent THAT much larger... http://rcdb.com/1457.htm?p=7560

The tire-driven lift hill looks a lot like Mine Train Ulven:

or Skull Mountain. And those are also family coasters.

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

Considering where the tires cut off compared to the top of the lift, I find it hard to believe that this will run single-car trains.

The classic!

Not sure about anyone else, but this reminds me a little of Expedition Everest.

Or Mamut at Gardaland. I think they all share a similar style of theming.
Best: | 1. Medusa (SFDK) | 2. Coaster (Playland) | 3. Behemoth (CW) | 4. Giant Dipper (SCBB) | 5. Titan (SFOT) Worst: | 1. Grizzly (CGA) | 2. Flight Deck (CW) | 3. Corkscrew (Playland) | 4. Dragon Fire (CW) | 5. Rainbow Chaser (Fun Forest)
- Rides don't hurt people, people do. (although some exceptions)

If this is going to be anything like Mamnut or Everest, than this should be fantastic. I really am looking forward to this with each passing day.
YES! YES! YES! YES! YES!'
