The non-inverting loop is now complete!
It's been a little while since we last had an update. The big airtime hill is now up and work has started on the first drop:
Oh damn that looks good!
The first drop continues to rise.
Double post but the first drop is now complete!
So, who's up for a trip down under then?
Oh my! That first drop is something else. Please can we have one of these in Europe!?
Ugh, it looks so slow.....
That happened rather quickly though, can't wait to see a POV once it is up and running!
That music is awesome, I hope it's going to be used somewhere on the ride.
I do think we could end up with something like this at Europa. There's certainly room for another big coaster with inversions.
Good news - after 4 days of testing the coaster is running 6 seconds faster, and you can really tell in this video:
Bad news - there are brackets on the first drop for trim brakes.
And here are some trims:
One of these days big coasters will be designed so that they do not need trim brakes!
Come on now @Rob - you're approaching whiny enthusiast territory. Even when it concerns a Mack ride
No POV yet however this did soft open over the weekend!
A look at the back row, which is backwards:
First Mack like this to have belts on the restraints? Altough in true Mack efficiency it souds like they unlock automatically at the end of the ride!

A really good review of the coaster can be read here on CoasterForce.
Sounds very good indeed. Reports that it does have a rattle that some of these other Macks do have (Aplina Blitz and to a lesser extent Helix), although it is not something that has really bothered me on either of those coasters.
More of these please!
How much Erdinger do they go through at the Mack design meetings?
POV of this beast:
It certainly carries a tonne of speed, hopefully all of the shaking is just the camera mount rather than the coaster itself!
Why can’t us Brits have coasters like this? Thorpe Park, take note.
Mandy called. She wants to remind you that we are getting one next year.
