We have updated animations for the Intamin Hot Racer that can be accessed from Intamin's Website
Criss-Cross (New Layout):

I really do like these. They look fun.
Two things don't like that much: Single row trains. I understand the gimmick. But in most parks this results in huge lines. I guess, the RMC's are doing well, so could these.

And a racing theme. Would've liked to see something different. Understand the parks can come up with their own themes.
With an element like the Wall-Ride-dive and Wave-turn-hill. I would've gone for a surf or skateboard theme in the presentation video.
