This is so great! This ride is so high on my bucket list, that launch is going to be incredible. Joe Draves really made a great layout. That bunny hop, the inversions, everything is great. I kinda feel like the last inversion is similar to the first one, I think I would of made the banking the other way to contrast the first element, but I'm sure it's great, this ride looks great. Yeah, the length is short, but it's similar to Intamin Accelerators, and I'm sure that's also party SF as well.

I want to meet this Joe Draves guy, and give him a standing ovation. Between this and Steel Curtain, he’s a genius when it comes packing a punch into tight footprints.

That's going to be so fun to marathon like 8 times in a row on a weekday. I can't wait.

Hopefully it's pretty forceful to counter the short layout. If it's really intense you probably wouldn't want it to be much longer!

The "Highest Double Inversion" has been topped off:

Also, does anyone notice the drive tyres positioned right at the top of the inversion?

Yeah, they're probably for roll backs like Dododonpa.

The animation for this ride definitely made the proportions seem way different than they're irl

Trains are now on track (notice how it is 4 cars per train instead of the 3 shown in the animation):
