  1. And hey, the paint will fade to the color shown in the animation nicely, too! Lol. It's really cool to have an eye in the sky to watch this giga go up, thanks @sixohdieselrage!

    I'm sorry my dear, but you are up for elimination.

    Not likely to learn anything actually new until the 15th. Maybe the 14th if it's leaked on the website early, as is tradition.

    I think it's always about context. If it's a solid ride with a nice entrance sign/area, I'm content. Also, Hagrid cost $300M and won't be making any enthusiast top 10. Of course people are fickle, too. Also, it's *vacillate*. Vaso spellings usually refer to veins. Here's hoping next week brings some new developments. I've enjoyed the posters, but the pacing KI was doing a good job setting tanked with the change.org page.

    Honestly the only downside of clamshells is being stapled. Otherwise they're A1. B&M really need to ditch OTSRs for their loopers, however. I hope they realize they'll need to figure this out for 4-across trains to stay competitive. Also, I'm surprised I haven't heard of Sky High before, at least in the context of coasters, lol.

    Inclined loops are actually an underrated element IMO, I think that could be done on a giga. As far as Project X, I think several areas will be banked past 90, possibly an angle to market the ride on. Lol.

    I came bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to the decoding thread this morning, but oof. Okay. I get that B&M are formulaic now, but they invented or refined on *most* coaster types. Inverts, dives, floorless, flying (which B&M didn't invent but completely redefined). Hell, B&M set the bar so high for a modern steel looping coaster with Kumba in 1993 that it changed the entire effin' game, that layout inspired replication and iteration across an industry. And even RMC has its formula at this point, with every one of their layouts being comprised of rolls, stalls, and outward banks. Now, by the same token, pigs will fly before we see a loop on a B&M giga. That's not even innovation, Schwarzkopf did loops best and I don't need one on a giga. A launch I'd be game for, however.

    I think whether KI sees a 400'+ coaster will depend on the viability of a certain breed of Tyrannosaur Edited for brain fart.

    I get what you're saying. We might have a layout in two dimensions (and rough ideas of a third), but I want to see what B&M's actual shaping is gonna...shape up like. Busch Gardens' announcement is kind of disappointing as yet, they've got a sizzle reel but no POV or layout pics. It would be nice, but...I'm not holding my breath. I could see **maybe** a quasi inversion somewhere, but I don't think B&M will push the banking past 135.

    Universal Studios Japan says hi. Flying Dinosaur is probably the best flyer yet. Vekoma's new launched flyer @ Phantasialand could be quite interesting. And all the non-clone B&M flyers are pretty great. Also it's *such a relief* teasers are happening lol.

    ^That is likely. In all fairness, SV's first teaser was a fake lumberjack fake-chopping at Mean Streak, and RMC Gwazi's teasers have consisted of a sad NL2 rendering and some text. An involved teaser campaign isn't necessary, but I do kind of hope to see some trolling a la what happened with the fake Bat Wing Rider ahead of Banshee.

    Umm, we learned the track is blue and supports a very light grey/white, that people really don't like 'spoilers', and that most of KIC's members don't have the best taste in music. Also, brake run, transfer track and station footings are nearing complete with more underway. Recent pics are in the Project X Construction Updates thread, and you can find video on the WildGravity Travels YouTube channel.

    Actually, if the station music is anything less than this on a loop, I will be inconsolable:

    No, I think you're on the money, despite that it turns a bit at the crest. Hopefully it'll deliver some weightlessness. Millennium (and Leviathan's) overbanks had to be acknowledged in a conversation about near inversions on gigas, but Project X seems to be like Fury in that max banking will be around or just past 90°.
