That drop in the back is going to be unbelievable. If Six Flags wants to keep investing in these then I am completely onboard.
It's not a hyper. You can see Nitro and Batman the Ride in the background, and this looks to be around the same height as the latter.Ok this thread has started to get cluttered.
Now I've calmed down a bit, I can give my thoughts properly. This looks incredible! I'd love to know some actual stats as I reckon this is potentially a hyper, but the coaster is massive, has 12 row trains (12 riders per train), and has 4 maintenance bays so it will likely run 4 trains! So the capacity might not actually be terrible! Also, the station looks quite long so I'm wondering if this will have a moving station like WWGLC, which is definitely a possibility! I thought the trains were restricted to 8 rows long, but clearly not!
My only concern with this is that the mid-course could slow the coaster down, so I am hoping RMC has designed it so it doesn't slow the train down (the other RMCs with mid courses were conversions, not ground up coasters). I really hope it ends up hauling like the other two Raptors, and I hope to see more in the world!
Also, I reckon this will feel like what I expect a T-Rex will feel like.
So It looks amazing but I highly doubt it's a hyper or SF would almost assuredly put that in the advertising promo. With how long that train is I can't imagine how forceful and whippy this is going to be in the back. I will say it's definitely enough to get me back to a park i had no interest in returning too.This looks incredible! I'd love to know some actual stats as I reckon this is potentially a hyper
Not until the initial talk has died down, otherwise we'll just have people posting the same stuff in multiple threads just for the sake of posting what they have to say about the subject in all the threads about the subject (for instance, it took approximately 2.7 seconds for people to start talking about this in the RMC Raptor discussion thread), or people asking questions in one thread whose answer can be found in the other. Expect the other thread to be opened in a couple days' time.I think it's fair to re-open the topic for this coaster now we properly know about it.
Could this be replacing the Axis Arena? Given its circular shape, I'd imagine so.
