    How about the fact it empties you straight into an airtime hop? Oh baby

    Are we offically calling that drop the Drachen Drop? It’s the only thing that could increase my excitement level any further. It looks so cool. It’s the coolest (non-RMC) element on any new ride I can think of, since, honestly, the B&M wingover drop

    IOA | Hagrid's Motorbike Adventure | Intamin LSM Launch (Dragon Challenge replacement)

    The complexity of this ride is something else. Multiple launches, dual drop tracks, a fast-switch swing launch (which I was unaware was a fast-switch until seeing the PoV, thought it was more conventional) like a dozen trains, and a conveyor station. Crazy. One worries about potential downtime...

    I would love to see the logistics on how this would work. 14 trains is obscene. Anyone have any details about station layout? I would assume a split/dual station, and they’ll stack and offload trains in a separate part of the ride

    This ride, to me, actually looks pretty good. But, man, it’d be WAY more appreciated at another park. At MM it just seems like a space filler.

    A drop tower without brakes at the bottom, just a slam into the concrete- THAT’S a NY Giants ride for ya

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    Amending this: Leviathan’s layout mostly does the right things too. This is most likely true re: cost. But that doesn’t mean I have to like it. Plus, they can always make lower, sharp ejector hills and/or long, low floats if the support cost is an issue. The hills don’t have to be tall...

    Kings Island | Orion | B&M Giga Coaster

    The layout disappoints me. Not cuz it's short. But because much like I305 and Fury it wastes a lot of speed turning on its side and doing helixes. That's not what you should do with all that speed. Why do these gigas have so few airtime hills? I'm not saying it should have a back half like Steel...

    Maybe this is all the years of making similar-lookin things in RCT2 talking, but I think it looks good. I like the industrial look of the supports... the looks of the train is a different matter

    The finale looks especially great to this ride. Those series of bunny hills followed by the barrel roll is exactly how rides should conclude

    That train looks snazzy. What a ride this will be

    At this rate West Coast Racers won’t be finished until Zadra AND this puppy are both open and running

    What ride gives the best airtime(not amount beat)

    That hill is excellent and probably better, compared to the drop, when riding in every seat that *isn’t* the very back. In my opinion anyway. But the very back seat? That first drop wins. However, that hill (plus the drop and other great air) means El Toro has the best airtime of any ride

    What ride gives the best airtime(not amount beat)

    Look: the best single airtime moment is El Toro’s drop in the back seat. It just is. I dunno why but that drop astonishes me every time, better than all others

    Rollercoasters which are too intense?

    Not sure I’ve found any that are too intense based off layout. However, I’ve found plenty that are **** based on bad train and track design. Goliath at SFNE falls in this category. Whacks you to smithereens. I guess if that falls under “intense,” then it’s that one
