That overbank is going to be painfully slow by the looks of things... Hopefully the chain lift will be fast!

^It will be slow. I guess it'll ride somewhat similar to the first left turn on Nitro. If we're unlucky it will be as slow as the first turn around/top hat thing on Blue Fire though.

^ Guys, that's actually meant to be a twisting airtime hill (as seen on Megalite's), so if it's slow, it'll be utterly dull.

Ok, I'm loving the logo for this beauty!

Slightly off-topic, but they've released 4 T-Shirt designs for merchandising. I have to say, they're all actually really nice clean designs.

There's something about that last t-shirt I absolutely love, it's just amazing.

Those bunny hops look airtime-filled :D

I have to say I was doubtful about this; I thought they'd probably played too safe in terms of intensity, but aside from the first hill after the drop this thing looks like it has A LOT of airtime. I really hope it can keep up the speed shown in the POV

If the animation is correct the ride is way to short, the speed over the last airtime hills looks unrealistic, like the video has been speeded up. I dont understand why mack didnt come up with their own verision of the mega-lites, this is almost identical to intamins. Its great that mack are making thrilling coasters but be a little more creative.

^ The timing on NL coasters are completely off to actual reality, it won't be that quick, if it was, ****... You'd be dragged out of your seat with the airtime. It may not have been down to Mack with the layout - the park could have actually asked them to make this layout.

I actually like it, it's a 'tighter' version of Intamin's. It's not bad at all.
 
I love the whole philosophy of Mega Lite type rides. There's no reason to build huge- you can get just as much airtime without the massive expense, and it takes up less space. I do hope the U.S. builds a couple like this, Intamin or Mack.

I don't think this has been posted? Some very nice views of the coaster in what appears to be a construction tour (although entirely in french).
