    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 :emoji_poop: if you don't have a tripod. That guy needs to learn himself something. :p

    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! :D

    Nope, just a bit of light rain that should clear up by early evening.

    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...

    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
