Here is a cool offride testing video by Pawel Patyk:-
Yeah there's some nice close-ups there. Although something about the unsteady/unsmooth zooming and panning that made that not the easiest thing to watch.
Yeah that video is if you don't have a tripod. That guy needs to learn himself something.
As far as the ride.. same look it's been giving. I'm still in the camp that the airtime won't be crazy but it will be a interesting ride.
Thanks for the opinion.
I will try to record it again, without zoom and from the tripod
Hahaha no idea it was yours. My point does stand but <3 for working on it! Hand held videos, especially with zoom, can be a real pain visually as Hixee and I mentioned. I like everything else you did.. just needed to be stable. Keep the vids coming though!
Only two more days. It’s times like this where I wish I lived closer
Weather forecast is not good for tomorrow.
Oh dear... opening potentially delayed, then?
Nope, just a bit of light rain that should clear up by early evening.
Brill! So still on target for 8pm tomorrow! Thanks @Benenen!
Matt, your relentless optimism is fascinating. I wish I could get that excited about an opening ceremony I'm not even attending.
Thank you! It's a new hyper in Europe, which is always a good thing, and despite my not-so-good experiences of Intamin, I have faith in them to produce a brilliant ride here. Besides, it's something a bit different to a B&M hyper, as stunning as B&M hypers are!
Well if you're just going off the Intamins in the UK, I sort of understand. I actually enjoy the Intamins in the UK, with the exception of Colossus. I don't even mind Shockwave!
I am going off of the Intamins in the UK, yes. Apart from Thirteen and Stealth, I don't particularly enjoy any of them. Rita and Colossus are both very, very rough, in my opinion, although I haven't actually been to Drayton and ridden Shockwave. I'm also going off of Cheetah Hunt, which while it is my #20 out of 42, I found it to have quite the rattle (although nowhere near Rita and Colossus levels) and while it was OK, it wasn't the life-changing experience that multi-launchers have always been implied to be. I'm hoping Icon will be better!
Anyway, today's the day! Who's excited?
P.S. I must stress as part of my Intamin hate paragraph that I have only ridden 6 of them.
^ Not all multi-launch coasters are implied to be life-changing though. Just a select few...
Like Helix, Taron etc.?
Also, I would take 'life-changing' with a complete pinch of salt. But, yes, Helix and Taron are in this bracket.
I thought as much, thanks @Lofty. Maybe I used the wrong word; "amazing" would probably have been a better word than "life-changing".
Anyway, I really look forward to hearing some opinions flow in about Hyperion over the course of the night!
If you have Instagram, look at their story. They post a couple of pics of the queue and it looks amazing
Links are always nice to post..
They do seem to be celebrating quite nice. Still searching for solid video tho. Getting nothing but crap thus far.. lol
