Yep, like I say, just an observation.
This will probably also be a far better coaster than Icon!
Won't be no Shambles, though!

C'mn guys, this is an Intamin Mega Coaster... when these are getting built there' always a chance it could be the world's No.1 coaster.
Crazy how small the parks in that pic. The similarity between this place and Tayto park is crazy (growth wise).
He's (or she's) right ya know. Until 2016, the number 1 and 2 steel coasters in the Golden Tickets were both Intamin Mega/Giga Coasters for 15 years.
And we all know how honest and fair THOSE results are...
Hyperion has gone vertical! Turns out the track is black after all, as are the supports it seems! Interesting colour choice for such a large coaster.
The black track sort of reminds me of the Smiler!
Urgh, all black for such a big coaster is going to look awful! A shame as the original colour schemed looked very nice indeed.
Weird looking track. Looks like something built by... grrrr, damnit, what's that eighth-rate French company called?
It's not dissimilar to the track style Intamin used on Soaring With Dragon in China.
It looks like if Merlin built a hyper coaster.
That's the one!
I think this would have looked better like it did in the rendering (blue track with grey supports, I believe?).
For some reason, rides like Smiler look OK with an all-black colour scheme, but I'm really not fussed with it on this. I'm sure it'll grow on everyone as the coaster rises.
One would hope that this promotional image does not mean that Hyperion will have some form of OTSRs:
Hopefully it's just whatever they used to shoot the promotional image!
Those look like Vekoma restraints to me.
Yep, they're the trains from the vekoma SLC
Do Vekoma have some kind of monopoly over false promotional artwork?
Thorpe did Stealth with B&M restraints, so.........
