That's presumably 2 for Valerian, 5 for CCC. Effectively the same as 6 trains on old Sat, though with how much faster the lift is now there's definitely room for improvement in terms of dispatches/hr

Despite Patrick's tweet, I find it difficult to believe (perhaps because I don't want to set myself up for another disappointment) that it'll be that much faster.

Surely the ride's slow speed is to make the already-nauseating Valterian tolerable?

They will adjust the VR film to fit with any speed adjustments, I am sure.

I'm sure, but when we went on Valerian although we both enjoyed it both of us felt pretty nauseous for an hour or so afterwards. I can't imagine a significant speed increase would help!

It isn't going to be 'significan't, it'll be a few mph here and there. Enough to make the latter sections at least a little exciting.

This is, in essence, the problem with the ride for me.

Yes, yes, lovely, lovely with the theming. But the real question is...

Are those bloody trims toned down?!

I'm not sure where these originated from, however some photos have been posted on CoasterForce showing some of the Eurosat theming changes:

Much more detailed than before. I am still hoping for some enhanced lighting effects also.

Oh wow...of course I don`t know how the actual ride experience will be...but they really put some extra money and work into the theming...to me it looks like a huuuge step up from what it was before :)

Isn't it unofficially–officially confirmed now that this was always the intended theming (or at least, not what debuted last year) but that it was causing structural problems so had to be removed last minute and replaced by a rush job?

Although I dont know that for certain, but it would explain the delay.

rather than more cheap cardboard cut-outs.
Yeah projection effects would be great, but flats and trompe l'oeil are fine and look the same as 3D if lit correctly, in a ride experience like this

Pretty sure the temp scenery it opened with was bodged together in a hurry and not intended

Disney, Universal etc all use flats in indoor coasters like this
