On my mission to get a full set of B&M coasters completed in NL2 I've been working on this Invert most the winter. It's been scrapped like 10 times, it's been reshaped and reshaped and reshaped. I really wanted something that could sit next to Banshee as a "new gen" invert, they're shaped so weirdly and interestingly, I['ve experimented with old school inverts but I really wanted to push myself here.

Anyway after many drunken zoom calls with mates to give me ideas and way more time on my hand I sat down and finished a layout and I'm FINALLY happy with how it rides. It's a chaotic, forceful ride that also glides like it's flying. Looks like this is my next full project....

Here's a preview. I just wanted to show just how hard I've worked on this shaping, and I look forward to eventually showing it in motion.

Nice! Kinda feels somewhere between Afterburn and Banshee.

^ Weirdly that was pretty much what I was going for in the layout.

Some updates! Looks like we now have a name... Yōkai, it's a general term for a type of spirit in japanese culture. All my life I've been drawn towards different aspects of Japanese art, I've always loved the mythology and also modern pieces in games and films, this seemed like a perfect time to delve into it and create something of an homage. I'm already in talks with Jay and he's started work already on creating an environment and I'm excited to see what we end up with. We have inspirations from some of my favourite things, from zelda to ghibli and the japanese connection to nature and the spiritual.

Anyway, ideas are welcome, here is the first rendition of the logo and some progess on the ride's hardware.




And a preview from Jay...
