DAMN!! This is gooood!! For me it looks a superb coaster, a nice theming and an awesome adittion for the industry in Europe!! And, seriously... are we going to complain because of the splash?? SERIOUSLY??
I post a video made by PACTv in the last row that I think it shows better the serious airtime that this thing has!!

This looks to be one of the best mega-coasters B&M has done in a while. Love taking those hills at high speeds, and that turnaround is awesome!

And even though the overall track length is shorter, the ride time seems MUCH longer than Leviathan, and barely appears to fizzle out towards the end. I suppose I prefer a coaster which is not as tall but provides a longer ride, over a taller coaster which provides a ride that seems to end fast and in a way feels incomplete.

Can we replace Goliath @ Magic Mountain with this?

In this link, of a Catalan TV , appears Hanno being interviewed !! Enjoy it

www.8tv.cat/8aldia/videos/sensacio-unica/


I rode it Yesterday , and i think that is AWESOME ! There is airtime in all the cars, and the sensation is so different between the front line , and the bottom of the train !
The speed hill is the better place to feel the airtime. The splash is amazing, at the last car you are sorrounded by water, and you can be soaked as well !

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

^ I love the way the description for that video specifies "...and works." As though there was some great fear that it wouldn't...

Seems that Shambhala is not "fat-friendly"...

I have seen a lot of people get kicked out of the ride because the restraint was not as far down as required to dispatch the train.

It seems weird because other B&M hypers operate just fine (even the American ones, with more overweight population!). How come?

Does anybody know if B&M have changed their standards in terms of restraints? Silver Star is also from B&M and doesn't have this problem and even people that has a "normal" weight and fitted in the test seat have been kicked of Shambhala because of the size of their thighs...

^I guarantee the restraints are no different than the hypers over here. Large people don't fit that well on them over here, either.
