Damn, this suddenly went fast. Looks quite insane so far, even though it seems this puzzle is far from complete.

This may almost make up for the loss of Dueling Dragons.

Almost.

This has been my most anticipated coaster for a while and I'm glad that what I'm seeing does not disappoint. Looking like it could be Intamin's best blitz yet and if Universal delivers on themeing that'll be quite a nice bonus.

Edit: Some clearer photos!

SO good. The track style and supports both look so huge, it looks like it'll be really intimidating to walk around, especially in Alton Tower's roller coaster colours.

That stall just looks like sex.

Hmmm... I went from a lot of hype into a bit of sceptic of this ride. The first part seems fun and reasonably lengthy. But the 2nd part after the launch seems very short? It's the top hat into the low helix, roll and finish?
