Does this shaping look right?

The drop looks appealing to me, from the top to the angled point where you reach about 60 degrees. :)

I decided to make Breeze in FVD because it seemed more B&Mish
Here is my progress

I tried reworking the Intimidator turn.

^ Hope that you're now making a lot of progress on a twisted drop part! :)

I wasn't happy with my first park, so I decided to start over. My hand-building techniques have slightly improved so this park should be better. Right now I am starting on a giga for the park that will go past the entrance. I don't know what to call it yet, but here are pictures of it. The giga is a very much a WIP at the moment.

304 foot tall lift hill (I am terrible with making names and color schemes for rides :lol:)
Image
Image
Overbank that comes after the lift
Image
Image
Part that goes under the entrance
Image
Whole ride, ignore the part on the far right, as it will soon become a over banked turn
As I said before this is still a very big WIP, and I know that there are a lot of issues still to fix, ex. supports, entrance into first airtime hill, but feel free to give advice :)

In my opinion the best first drop test for a B&M gyper/giga is to sustain 0g throughout the entire drop ;) :)

I presume you're going for a Fury 325 inspired ride so the sweeping turns and large overbank certain keep to that style - although the dip under the entrance looks quite severe in comparison given the pictures. Might be the angle though.

You might already think this but I think the extended spine needs to be steeper as the track is currently shaped. Try setting it at an angle similar to the steepest part. Should give it a more natural look and it would be a far better support in real life.
