    There doesn't appear to be any fins on the holders, and it's had those for a while. Regardless in the test run at around 2 minutes it looks to absolutely haul, especially considering it's running empty train, so I can't even imagine how good it'll be with riders.

    It has definitely sped up, it goes way too fast over the top hat.

    Ride to Happiness might have something to say about that.

    Some more test footage in the first half of the video. The first half still looks ridiculous but the second half looks a lot more sensible now.

    From the animation, it didn't seem like it'd be a stall drop, so hopefully it won't be trimmed to heavily, which is crazy considering it already has some speed going into the drop.

    Pantheon has cleared the Zero-G-Winder and is now parked on the swing launch. https://www.instagram.com/p/CMpZoDWhu2L/?igshid=1nsij90w2a2rp

    According to the park at the event, it reaches a slightly higher speed at the bottom of the quad down, and how it ran the other day is how they plan to keep it when the ride opens.

    I’m pretty sure they were mainly referring to the launch not being at the speed it was back in 2016.

    Icon at Blackpool Pleasure Beach; overrated or underappreciated?

    Maybe it's just me, but I haven't heard much hype surrounding Icon recently, and I feel like it has become pretty fairly rated. In terms of UK coasters it's my favourite, but outside of that, it's a decent multi launch with a couple great airtime moments however it suffers from particularly weak...

    So I guess Taiga just doesn’t exist now?

    For me the second half looks as expected from seeing the off ride, which is fantastic, but the first half looks way better than I expected. There are definitely a couple great looking airtime moments in the first half which from the off ride looked quite weak. Overall with how the ride is...

    Is RMC going downhill?

    I’d say that the B&M comparison isn’t really the best. Most of the 1990s B&M inverts are still really well regarded, it’s just the newer ones with the seemingly less intense designs such as Silver Bullet and Patriot are less liked by enthusiasts. I do agree among quite a few enthusiasts there...

    That drop looks so good. When it speeds up more the rest of the layout will be crazy.
