Personally, I think the skyline would look much better if the whole lift and drop were BEHIND Khan, instead of overlapping for a bit. Obviously, that might have been necessary due to other factors, and the interaction will probably make the drops more exciting; solely for looks, however, I would prefer it completely behind.

Oh man, wasn't expecting something that steep! :shock:

The track still reminds me of SEGA though.

Has it been confirmed at all what type of train this coaster will have, standard 4 across or will it be similar to the Cedar Fair train layout?

I would assume the Cedar Fair train layout since it has a splashdown like Diamondback.

From the start, the coaster planning application had the standard 4 across seating. The attached documents shown a splash from the front car as opposed to the back, wether this is true or not, hopefully it's got the new "V" shaped trains.

New Picture:

That planning application file was a fake. Seriously, someone pulled this to get everyone talking but the trains won't be 4-across.

Anyone that's ridden the standard and the staggered seating, is the staggered much better? Or doesn't it really make that much difference?

Staggered seating is loads better, and will significantly improve this.

I'm happy with that then, I hope it does, the staggered seating trains actually LOOK better than the original 4-across seating.

I know for a fact from riding Nitro and Diamondback that the staggered seating has more of the B&M rattle too it, then the standard four across. The staggered seating is 2 rows sitting on wheels at the back of the car, it allows more room for the rattle, while the 4 across trains are just sitting directly on the wheels.

I prefer Nitro's 4 across to Diamondback's staggered, but Diamondback is awesome in the front seat, but rattles like hell in the back, where as Nitro is pretty much smooth wherever you sit minus the slight rattle that developed because the ride is 11 years old.

More progress :--D :







Looking back on the picture of the model, does this thing have a MCBR? I seriously cannot wait now to get back to PA :D .

Someone on TPR also stated the drop is 77.4* steep.

I think, if I remember correctly, the MCBR is actually RIGHT near the end of the ride, after the Splashdown!

That first camel-back looks like its going to be pretty steep, and I love that shot of the lift, it looks maHOOsive!

That really doesn't go as far a long the park as I thought it was going to, shows how tight that hill is.

Very excited.

Really liking the progress on this now.

Love the look of that helix.

Pretty accurate idea of layout:
