    As it's a lapbar, no need to worry about upper chest measurements. I'm a 38 inch waist and I just about fit in the normal seat. Big seat should be good for a 42 or even 44 inch waist.

    ITV Granada just shown footage of the coaster testing - sadly no footage of the inline.

    Thanks for reading.

    ^ just watched that - what a useless report that was. Finished with a bit of the launch but didn't follow the train up the hill. Not worth watching.

    Collection of testing footage from various sources.
    The Granada report.

    Some random footage from theme park worldwide. (Feel free to mute whilst watching if so required for your vlog tastes.)

    Looks good anyway.

    Oh wow. The second half looks absolutely incredible, I really hope this is standard running speed and that it isn't toned down before opening.

    Worryingly slow seems like a bit of an overstatement don't you think?

    The only 'worryingly slow' parts of the first half are when dickhead Sanbrooke decides to slap a low quality, low FPS, laggy slow-mo effect on the shots to buffer the video out.

    I assumed the train would crawl over that first hill top hat style so I'm pleased to see it taken with a bit of oooomph.

    Also worth noting that Mack coasters always look slower off ride than they feel on it! Star Trek being a prime example.

    I always use Lost Gravity as an example of how no Mack coaster really rides as it looks (same as Blue Fire, but the opposite way).

    Star Trek is extremely slow both on and off ride though so not sure what point you're trying to make here
