Re: USJ | Flying Dinosaur | B&M Flying Coaster

Wow wow wow. Certainly the best B&M flyer yet - unlike the others (excluding Starry Sky Ripper which looks fab), there doesn't seem to be a dull moment. No meandering about at all!

That pretzel loop looks like the highlight of the ride to me, and that little kink may well deliver some gorgeous airtime. Pretzel loops are forceful, but in a tunnel - that's something else.

What's even better is that that's just a test run...and it doesn't even look slow ;)
Think about how it'll run at the end of a busy day...

This is probably my favourite example of what I think flyers should be like. I love how it will soar over the paths packed with people and buildings and the view after the mini hill is lovely.

Looks like an incredible ride! I especially love the interaction with the buildings, soaring just above them.

And I can't help but think this was a cold run POV. If this thing goes even faster... <3

Someone probably gave it to them, then told them that they wanted to show it first.

But what is seen cannot be unseen.

^That.

"Keeping sources happy" kind of gives that away.

First half look so brilliant, second half so lame.
Considering the first part looks pretty intense, I am ok with a second part with tamer elements just to give you the time to recover from high G forces and having the feeling of actual flight.

I like the way it looks intense for the first half and not the second half. Air meanders and in my opinion it succeeds as a flying coaster, so I'll probably like the second half quite a bit.

Yea this looks awesome, combines the intense parts of a flyer with actual flying parts like Air.

Love how it goes over all the buildings and flies over the top of the JP area. Hope the trains look good.

Feel like they missed the trick with the turn above the lake though, should have been a Manta element diving down close to the water there.

Thanks for reposting the POV roomraider.

I agree on the pace of the flyer. Yes the later half is not intense, but it appears to have plenty of great flying bits to really add to the ambience. I especially love the turn over the pathway next to the water before the corkscrew.

POV is back up under a different title - catch it while it's hot!
