I think it's probably the camera mount.

Lapbars should negate that anyway, just like on Karnan.

Looks fantastic, if this was built in the US everyone would be gushing.

Yo that first airtime hill looks like it's gonna give a lot of airtime kind of like EGF's first large hill! This ride looks super fantastic IMO.

...though I'm not sure if this would have been better than the Vekoma. I really really liked the first version of the Intamin layout they had, but the final product seems like it might be substantially less dynamic than that one. I still like it a lot though!

The first half looks absolutely incredible, a lot of airtime for sure. The second part is great, but I have the feeling Vekoma could have done this better. Vekoma had more twists there while still including the airtime.

We have probably chosen Intamin because we knew they could deliver a fantastic ride without any major problems (Hyperion is a great ride) but that wasn't sure with Vekoma

It looks like they took everything good on Intamin coasters, put it together and dialed it down the slightest bit. Looks like an awesome ride, but the Vekoma might have been the better investment.

To be fair that's all we can do right now. :( Besides it's not even about the pacing really

I think it looks really good even from an empty / dummy filled train with new tight wheel bogies

The queue looks pretty good. Not the most themed queue I've seen but I think it works well with the ride.

Seems like a ride operator was killed yesterday on Hyperion:

https://faktyoswiecim.pl/fakty/zginal-p ... w-zatorze/

From what I've heard, the operator was reaching out for a mobile phone which fell out of someone pocket, when he was struck by an oncoming train.

Yes, they have someone walking in the ride area to pick up loose articles that passengers lost during their ride.
Very dangerous, but it's possible there.
It's terrible that this happened

Sounds like a case of human stupidity. Especially employees should know and realize it's dangerous in an operating ride area. It almost feels like they didn't check where the actual train was.

Sucks it happened though. :/

The ride was reopened the next day, presumably with the operators reminded that the ride area is a no go area during operation.

I hope the train wasn't damaged. Then again this incident is why more parks need to have a "lol sucks to suck" policy when you drop your crap during the day.

If the roller coaster is operating, stay the hell out of the plot. I'm surprised it was a ride op though.

If I am right, it was not a ride operator.
Someone I know went there a few weeks ago and he saw someone walking in the ride area as well.
It turned out to be someone who's job was to pick up loose articles that passengers lost during their ride.
He walked there all day.
This job could not be possible in most amusement parks, since it is way too dangerous, but it's possible in Energylandia.
