That's actually awful!

You'd have thought to break the 500ft mark someone would come up with something special, maybe a huge launch from Intamin or S&S with a half decent layout, but this this is awful. It makes absolutely no use of its height and it's basically going to be about as thrilling as a wild mouse. What a crap idea!

I love the idea but hope that it's like **** insane version of the el locos as opposed to a giant piece of helix crap, but I have more confidence since Shilke is designing it.

So is this thing trimmed along the entire length of the track?
I noticed some interesting banking in the concept video which I can't replicate in NL at all.

That video is REALLY old now. It was released earlier this year when the first concept of this ride came out. I wouldn't expect it to have the same layout as that video.

Also, I'm highly doubting it being added to a park in Orlando (with the exception of either Fun Spots), I think it's going to be it's own entity personally.

I'm with Mark on this one I can see this as a stand alone attraction, especially if there is some sort of entertainment complex at the top.

It won't go in either of the Fun Spot parks, but it could be built in the land Fun Spot purchased that Mark Brisson, the Director of Marketing for Fun Spot Attractions spoke of in the video I filmed.

The first 14 minutes of this video is the guided tour & the rest are clips of construction filmed the previous day - for anyone interested in that sort of thing.

For those that couldn't be bothered with watching the first 14 minutes of the construction video - Mark gave us exclusive information that the park also purchased the acreage across the street from the current expansion area (see the areal photos in my previous post), which is going to be leased to one of three bidders for another attraction area. You can skip to 6:40 minutes into the video to hear details about the adjoining attraction area.
Here are those areal photos that show the additional acreage across the street from the expansion area.

A wild thought came to me that this could be the Gringotts coaster at Universal, with the structure themed to a Hogwarts tower.

Same! I'm pretty sure it's been way over a week since the IAAPA announcement!

I don't have high hopes for this one. im honestly skeptical on how this will turn out and look.

Now sure how much I would enjoy the constant helixes.

Anyway, good for them. Looks entertaining enough.

How many times will someone need to say...

THE LAYOUT IN THE CONCEPT IS NOW WRITTEN LAW. It's to show what the product is. The last piece of promotion for the product mentioned inversions, sudden drops and other such items, so it isn't going to be a constant helix...

Just like how it was gonna be announced a 'few weeks' after IAAPA last year? :p

I totally forgot about this, maybe Orlando and Atlanta did, too.
