Wow, that looks awesome! The tunnel under the pier looks really cool and a coaster with it's own cable bridge sounds awesome.

The millennium flyer is one of the best trains around. The only thing that would improve them is to remove the seatbelts and install buzzbars. Or make them floorless

Im surprised...the concept is fantastic and Im sure itll be a BEAUTY to look at but it doesnt look nearly as good as like, i dont know, 4 to 6 other designs I can think of from them. Layout doesnt scream much to me and doesnt look as dynamic as other more recent designs. The Bridge that will mimic and cable stay (or will be a cable stay) will be a highlight but to me, the ride looks more like a visual work of art rather than an engineering one.

The layout looks boring from just the renderings, but I'm assuming there will be at least a few tweaks and other ideas they didn't put into a balsa wood model to show off to people who couldn't really care less about specific aspects of the layout that an enthusiast would. I'll save my judgement for the surfacing of an animated rendering of a POV. Those are usually much much more accurate!

Looks pretty fun to me. Looks to be full of lats, floater, and short ejector... like a GCI coasters.

Where? All those qualities exist on rides like Thunderhead, Troy and their latest assortment. The Rendering looks more drawn out and less of the quick changes of direction.

Also I see a clear discrepceny between the 2. The triple cross over is layered differently in the render and the model...

Just doesnt excite me like 100% of their other rides have from prelim drawings and renderings.
