The ride would be better without the spike. Not that it wouldn't be an awesome experience, but with having to reduce speed for the rest of the layout, whats the point other than "just because we can".
What are these for?

I'm not going to 100% trust the pacing shown in the video. I have a feeling it will run faster IRL and the spike won't be so useless.

I agree. And I would theme it to space and call it Deep Space! Oh wait.



:D

Seriously I think this could make a great experience, it's just that the simulation is messed up.

Really like the layout and design of this coaster. It's also good to see Premier Rides doing more projects.

Looks like the project is underway. Premier sent out a press release today and track was also shipped.

An immersive dark-ride experience, a dramatic reverse magnetic launch through the roof of the building soaring to a height of nearly 60m, followed by a thrilling coaster experience is ready to become reality in Qatar’s capital city Doha as US-based roller coaster design and manufacturing firm Premier Rides’ first shipment of US fabricated steel roller coaster track for their newest one-of-a-kind signature magnetic launch coaster is shipping to Qatar.

Premier Rides has partnered with Qatar’s leading developer, Halul Real Estate Investment Company, to develop a cutting-edge product with an unforgettable experience for riders. The attraction will be part of Doha Oasis, a stunning mixed use development that offers a high end residential opportunity, a retail complex, an exclusive 7-star high-rise hotel tower and a world-class indoor theme park. With the engineering and fabrication processes for the ride now complete, both companies are delighted that the exporting process has officially begun. Premier estimates a total of approximately 100 shipments will be made over the next two months.

Jim Seay, President of Premier Rides commented, “We are extremely honored to be part of Halul Real Estate Investment Company’s vision for a world class development featuring a stunning, iconic 60m tall, fully-enclosed roller coaster tower that will allow riders a spectacular view of the city while remaining in a controlled climate setting. I am thrilled to see the first of many shipments of US steel ready to ship to what will certainly be the most amazing real estate development in Qatar.”

Seay continued, “Halul’s project will be a showcase in the run up to the 2022 World Cup and demonstrates their commitment to provide an unparalleled guest experience that is second to none.”

The attraction, with its closely-guarded, highly secret theme, will be the tallest and largest thrill ride in Qatar, and one of the tallest in all of the Middle East. It is a custom special-effects ride that combines an immersive dark ride, magnetic drive technology, high-speed switches and a highly dynamic ride experience into a multi-sensory thrill ride unlike any other attraction built to date.

“The entertainment component of the complex will be first-class,” stated Hasan Abu Rub, Project Director for Halul Real Estate Investment Company. “We wanted a signature ride that would have a global impact and we are pleased to partner with Premier Rides. Premier’s innovation and quality is evident in their work with other clients such as Revenge of the Mummy™ for Universal Studios. Together we will create for our valued visitors a one-of-a-kind world class attraction.”

Do you know if there are any other POVs of this coaster? Never got the chance to watch the rendering.

That's a joke right? What complaint could they have possibly given?

They should only be allowed to complain about the coaster being built too far away from them.

A friend actually sent me this picture that was taken a couple months ago in Long Beach. We predicted that it was heading overseas, and it looks like we were right!
Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

^^Premier does manufacture all their track in Utah so it looks like you caught some Dragonfire track!

Here's a concept video for the mall that shows the themepark and some shots of Dragonfire.

So are the rides underground or are the gardens raised?

Apparently the coaster is now complete but photos are not able to be shared at this time. Hopefully some photos appear soon!

Here's an older tweet from Premier showing what the site was like back in April:

I remember seeing this awhile ago and assumed this project was canceled. Should be cool when it's done.

Sometimes I think Six Flags projects take way too long on purpose, and then I remember these parks in the middle east where rides take literally years to build. Everytime one of these topics come up, I see my original comment, and have no idea what I was referring to
What are these for?
