Is that a reference to the coaster or the fact that the photo's from Dirk Diggler
I know this is off topic, but shouldn't you be tagged as a staff member, since you're a member of the social media team?
Hahahahaha I didn't even realize that!
I think they're set up to be separate but equal. I don't really have much extra power on the forums.
It feels like a truly awkward inversion. After such a great experience, you get a (what feels like) thrown in inversion to end the ride and it just doesn't fit the rest of the layout in terms of pacing etc.
I disagree, I like how you get that bonus bit of hangtime at the end of Helix.

Another gorgeous photo.
Wow, they built it fast! When is it opening, and is there still work left to be done?
For the last part of your question, look 3 posts above yours.
Having some hang isn't the issue, all of the Mack Heartlines have a certain degree of hang, which is fine. Helix's hangs all the way through and doesn't speed up and is jerks you through, it shuffles you around the seat due to the lack of speed through the track.
Blue Fire's does it properly, Helix's just isn't the same.
This color scheme is turning out a lot better than I thought it would.
Airtime launch is up:-
This thing is flying up! Are we reckoning a March opening for this, like it was with Fury?
I'd say yes. Icon wasn't completed until mid February and it opened late May, so the timeline sounds about right! I'd guess an opening day between March 20th and April 1st if everything goes according to plan.
Cedar Falr usually gets their attractions open on their parks’ opening days. Carowinds’ 2019 opening day will likely be March 30th (last weekend in March), with a pass preview night on the 29th, and a media day sometime between that Monday and Thursday.
Ah right. Thanks guys!
Literally just the top hat left now and then it's done. It'll be finished by Friday.
This thing is opening for Winterfest, right?
This is gonna be great, and a perfect addition to Carowinds current coaster line up. Sweet Mack floater airtime from start to finish.
Can we swap it with Icon?
