    It’ll be like Monster at Walygator. Brake run lost in transit.

    You’ll load and unload halfway up the lifthill as the train rockets through the station and looses momentum on the incline.

    I guess in some ways it'd be even more surprising if bits didn't get lost ... Intamin are involved with the project, so I am sure they can fettle something.

    Have they checked it hasn’t been chucked over the back fence?

    Perhaps it was nicked and sold for scrap by the wonderful clients that visit towers on "Family Days" :p

    I'm not too fussed if so. I mean, who's going to really miss an inline-twist or two?

    I think Cedar Point still have an Intamin inline twist rusting in their boneyard.

    Feels like a step up for a park that used to paint everything pink and/or yellow.

    The track colour is fine; it's the supports that kill it really.

    Just be grateful that someone is building a major coaster in the UK which isn’t grey/black/silver.

    I believe planning stated it was grey with black supports and they are painting it once assembled...

    The first drop is now down, as well as the turn into the inlines and the final corkscrew. Work is also ongoing with the loop:

    I think the colours look good, it’s still a random ride to be building though.

    Do you think they’ll bother to theme it at all?

    I feel a bit dirty for saying this, but I’m actually a bit excited for this ride now.
