Decoding 2020

Recommended Posts

It still gets me that the bottom of the final drop and final break run are so high off the ground and that much higher than the station. Will people at the top of Racers lift hill be looking up at the train on Polaris break run. This is the same problem I have with Levi. Why can't they put in one last little ejector air hill. Im sure there is a reason for it, it just looks ridiculous.

I agree, it does seem like some wasted potential. At least in KI's case, the brake run will be in the rear of everything else, so less jutting out compared to other cases. 

My guess is B&M likes to keep it high up and angled somewhat steep to allow for the trains to evacuate the brake run quickly by relying on gravity rather than drive wheels. Valravn's brake run also comes to mind. 

Also note that directly below the last drop is a walkway. They probably want to have plenty of height there to drive whatever vehicles they need to in the future. Looks like they plan on keeping the trees under this part of the track, so some of that extra height helps with that.

Also, I think I found the official soundtrack of the new ride. Coaster's name will be Skylane.

Oops my keyboard on my phone went crazy for a second, I meant is there any teasers on the fence or around the park today?

This is what I came here for, I was hoping someone would see some teasers on the fence today

I can't even think, at least off the top of my head, how many coasters are green. I think that's a great color for a B&M.

Green lanterns, Kingda Ka, Helix, Hulk, Raptor are what come to mind

Red and blue are still dominant when it comes to coaster colors though

Don’t forget Hydra at Dorney!

EDIT: Also Tantrum at Darian Lake and I think Cheetah Hunt.

EDIT2: Plus both Green Lanturn coasters and Riddler’s Revenge (the SFMM coaster and the SFNE SLC)

It seems to suggest that you think they might be changing the lift hill height. They absolutely do not make changes to the structure this late in the process. I'd wager that the final design and layout of this coaster has been nailed down for over a year. What the electrical plans have will be the same that CSF have and what B&M designed. When KI signed off on this(probably in 2017 if not earlier), the changes to the ride were done. 

No was not suggesting that, just giving some clarification on what the date on the drawings mean. Its possible -- but not likely -- that the electrical designer may have had outdated information.  Since the finished pieces started showing up early this spring at CSF, the shop drawings were probably approved late in 2018.

So now that it's after July 4th, this is officially the latest they have waited into the season to start teasing, right? 

Yes, but I’m starting to agree that once grand carnivale is over, they will start teasing

Yeah I'm starting to think that too since there is only two days left lol 

Now I'm wondering if it will be Monday, the day after GC ends, or next Friday or even later ... or maybe none at all. At least it is finally July so stuff should get interesting real soon. I'm mostly looking forward to having the theme and name confirmed/announced.
