Actually looks like a lot of fun now they've put it all together - there is a bunch of interactions and no doubt the airtime launch will improve the typically lackluster Mack launch.

It looks like a flat spot at the top of the tophat from some angles.

Is the Jo-jo roll covered or just the beginning of the launch?
What are these for?
