Reliability, no doubt.

Obviously, it's so that the Intamin Cable can't claim another victim. :p

I'm not sure if they could do this with a cable lift, but the chain lift allows them to do a varied speed hill lift, which allows them to dispatch a train before it clears the first block. B&M did this on Fury in place of a MCBR.

^They can. Millennium Force's lift usually picks up speed about half way up once the train before it clears the block. But since most of these Intamin coasters with cable lifts have rolling blocks when trains enter the station, the lift speed doesn't vary much since there is plenty of time left over.

Not sure why Intamin/Energylandia opted for a chain lift for this ride, but I imagine it will be quiet and smooth like a cable lift hill (like on the Superman hyper coasters).

I LIVE for the new Intamins. :lover:

This coaster is gonna be a Golden Ticket contender, I know it.
Darien Lake is my home park. Sad but also proud about that. :lmao: :)

I think Intamin should make a donkey!

^ Please correct me if something I say is wrong, but isn’t the Golden Ticket awards mostly a popularity contest? If so, then I would get to excited for Hyperion’s Golden Ticket, since I doubt enough enthusiasts are traveling to southern Poland to give it a good chance of placing well. The TPR poll, on the other hand, I can easily see this being a contender if enough people ride. Most enthusiasts have pretty much accepted that the Golden Tickets are a pretty poor indicator of how good a ride is.

Regardless, I’m ridiculously hyped for this ride, even though it will probably be years and years before I get a chance to ride it. Can’t wait for testing!!! :b :br :b :br

My soul will be ready for this in 2019. Are there trains on site? I know we got renderings, but curious as to how the final design turns out.
"Next, we are going to solicit the children of strangers so that we can go on a ride designed for children. This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

Do we have an estimated opening date yet? Is there a good chance this thing will be open in late August?

If it does, I'll be in the Krakow area. And I will be posting the trip report!
