Wait... F.L.Y. has a lift hill? I thought I saw one in 2018 but when I realised it was gonna be launched I assumed that it was just a bit of track...

Someone explain please lmao I'm confused 😂

Well, it's simple. The station is on a lower level than the launch. So you need some elevation in between.

True, the only thing we can do is waith now. How frustrating it is it won’t go faster by saying “i think it will be then” . Most of us are waiting more then 4 years now a few weeks/months must be doable.
I would give not even a sh*t at opening dates, which are not from the park....

Its the same booster wheel pre-lift that was used for the prototype tests at Vekoma. Brings the train to the correct level and is a part of this indoor dark ride section.

Oh, right... thanks guys 😂

Didn't realise the station was underground and definitely didn't realise there was a dark ride section, thanks for the info... the bit I thought was a lift in 2018 must have just been part of the layout.

**** yeah, i love dark ride sections on coasters. you gotta build a good narrative and tension, otherwise the coaster starts off with the most exciting element and just gets slower and slower. i've been waiting for a good flying coaster dark ride forever
