    I think I'm that guy you're referring to? I've done about all I can with what we got today. I could drop the overhead view into CAD, and sketch splines to match the overhead view and give them Z heights to match the few bottom/top heights that the blueprints give today to get a ROUGH layout length and 3D view of the track, but I'm sure someone tonight will provide a NL recreation based on what we learned today, which will be just as good as what I can do in CAD.

    Yep, 286' lift height (per footings coordinates and today's blueprints) with a 301' drop (per today's blueprints).

    Each track piece is numbered on one of those blueprints. It's not super clear in the station and transfer area, so I had to guess there, but I'm estimating there are 148 track pieces in total. If I take Fury's track pieces of 192 and length of 6602', I get an average piece length of 34.385'. An estimate of 148 pieces at 34.385' gives me a length of 5089', assuming KI's coaster and Fury have a similar distributed estimated of track lengths. Lift height, 286' Drop height, 301' Track length, 5089'

    If you look at exiting the helix and below the first drop, the track and clearance envelope is dashed. My first thoughts is that is where the tunnel is.

    Kentucky Kingdom is literally across the highway from Louisville's airport, and one portion of the park had a 200' max build height. The closest airport to KI is about 11 miles away, so if they have a max build height, it's either way more then 325'ish, or dictated by something else other than the airport.

    Per these blueprints from today and the already-released blueprints from the lift footings, there's ~286' between top of lift to the ground directly below (one of my previous posts from today explain this). Also, final brake run starts at about 81' feet off the ground, based on the heights of the footings directly below (shown below).

    Here we go. That's the best we have to work with for right now.

    Shortly before all the action happened today, I was working on a scale-corrected image of the 'leaked' layout. Since we know it's legit now, I'm not worried about posting it. Overlapping both images of the leaked layout and fixing the scale so that everything lines up correctly at the seam does give us a bit longer coaster (red outline is what was existing, blue arrow is the corrected length). No huge difference, and not really relevant anymore given the info we got in the last few hours, but ... yea. Fixed 'leaked' layout:

    More I look at this, this won't be a DB 2.0. Almost every single turn on here, the safety boundary around the track overlaps the track itself, suggesting very steep banking. Some of these look overbanked, certainly at 90deg+, but hard to say at the moment. The trains will be flying thru every turn. Below are turns in order with very steep banking.

    Nope, you didn't scroll far enough. I read the number wrong, it's 1035.9, giving us a drop of ~301'.

    I'm going to call it... lift height is 286' with a 301' drop. The footings directly under "top of lift" are at 749' and 750' ground elevation. Subtract the 1035.9 lift height from these numbers puts the lift height at 286' above ground. Subtract the lift bottom elevation height of 735' from the lift's height of 1035.9' gives us a drop right at 301'. Lift height, 286' Drop height, 301'

    300' drop, up 181' with overbanked-ish turn, down 174', up 188' into the ampersand, down 194' below ampersand, up 62' bunny hill, down 54', up 139' TRIM, down 138' beginning into helix, up 109' top of helix, down 107' exiting helix, up 88' turn towards brake run, down 56' (last drop), up 46' into brake run.

    Drop height is 301'.

    There is a trim prior to entering the helix. Looks like just one trim total, though.
