Personally, I've always liked the standup concept and am glad to see another one being built.

While I do understand the "fad" label and I know stand-ups have various drawbacks, I've enjoyed every installation I've ridden. And I've ridden some of the worst! No problems here with the revival.

Yeah, I agree. I like the stand up coasters. I mean yeah, it does suck to have your balls crushed,but other than that, I like the feel of them. When I go to carowinds every year, I always get 2-3 rides on Vortex before I leave. I'm really liking that color scheme.

I think its great to see B&M trying new things lately, such as,

A dive loop on a inverted coaster

A loop on a flying coaster

A new wingrider style coaster at Gardenland

And of-course this new zero g roll on a stand up coaster

This is a big step seeing that B&M likes to play it safe.

It looks sort of like Daemonen - not because of the layout itself, but of how tight and compact the layout appears to be.

You can see the layout here. Not a long layout by any means but a dive loop and an immelmen either side of the zero-g-roll is a nice touch.

Inclined loop, dive loop, zero-G, immelman, corkscrew, airtime hill, turn, brake run.

I like it!

It's wierd how it's sort of on the side of a steep drop. I like the look of the inline twist though...And to everyone who's going on the China Trip...Enjoy! It's as though China Is building this just for TPRs Trip!
