As soon as the coaster picks up any real speed it hits a brake.
But it will be cool the way it goes through the building and close to others.
The public will love it thats for sure, and the park needs something.
If you are referring to the NoLimits video that was posted a few pages back, then just because the train slows down a lot in that video doesn't mean it is going to on the real thing. When you add a brake segment in NoLimits, by default there is a certain amount of speed that is trimmed off of the train. If the creator of that track didn't change those numbers, then the brake is going to grab the train a little bit. I think this ride will have much less trimming then you see in that video, or possibly none at all. Of course, there is no way we can tell until it opens, but I doubt that video is 100% accurate.
I actually think this coaster is looking even better than it did in the concept art, which isn't something that happens often. I am looking forward to walking around Universal's streets and seeing a coaster.
Now that I'm seeing what this coaster is, I can't believe this thread is only 29 pages, and the manta thread is 100 pages long! I'm a B&M fan, but since I live in florida it's going to be nice to ride a decent coaster that isn't one. Sure, there are some, but more is better
