    Is single rider definitely down the pan for "Galactica" then? Sorry if this has already been discussed, not been on here in a while.

    The answer to not having to wait in a 2 hour queue is to turn up early and go straight to it. Problem solved. You don't need to thank me :)

    Alice, it's not happening... I am not waiting for air. I will go sit in the toilets for a bit.

    I'm not bothered about queuing it's just that single rider is a lot more convenient for me as I don't mind being split up, plus you usually get on quicker depending on the length of the queue

    I thought there'd be more turns than that tbh, seem very "forward only" I assume that launch through the portal at the end of that clip will be in sync with the little drop coming off the lift hill before the bend? Rather than at the bottom of the first proper drop where the portal actually is?

    What i find funny is how we all wanted them to actually theme the tunnel and this is what we get.

    If you look at the tunnel floor in the new clip with those 3D triangle arrows it looks v similar to the old concept art for the floor with cadbury heroes too!

    It feels like the turns match the ride, so if you start in the left side station so you turn right at the merge. Then right again inside the tunnel (matches with you turning to choose a portal door) and then up the lift hill. If you are wearing a headset I assume if you move your head around then you can see other aspects of the view as well.

    It's saying I must log in first.

    EDIT. Just tried from my laptop, it worked.

    WOW... Looks great!

    It's just facebook wanting to track you, kept demanding i log in each time to watch it again but I refused.

    YouTube much easier.

    It's just the bit where clearly it's leading to some kind of launch look/feel that confuses me as to where on the track we're going to be.

    It's going to be leaving the station turning into the points and then turning right and up the lift.
