Holy crap, I had no idea the layout would be so cool. Taking such extreme elements at that height (and so slowly) will be so fantastically scary. Even the damn lift hill winding it's way up the tower looks fun. If this first installation works out I can see these being built all over the place.

Wow this thing looks like a major blast. All those twists, turns and rolls along with some intense dives makes this ride a game changer in ride experience. I am looking forward to this new thrill machine. I wonder what the upcharge is going to be for this?

I can only agree with what everyone else have said so far, this ride looks far more impressive than I had ever imagined. I would be seriously excited to go on this, and there are not that many coasters that are able to generate that feeling for me.

Everyone keeps saying it's going to be trimmed...but I don't think so other than the typical beyond vertical El Loco drops and the MCBRs throughout the layout. The actual ride sections (turns, hills, dive loops, inverted stalls, opposite banked turns, 0g rolls, etc.) will ride normally. There are some seriously talented designers behind this ride

 

I think it looks absolutely insane. While I don't think it will necessarily contend for best coaster on earth or anything, it will be kick ass and one of the most unique rides will all of these elements thrown into one. The way they managed to use all of those elements but not repeat anything other than the dive loops is seriously impressive. Now to see (if) it actually gets built.

Okay... I don't know what to think of this. Yes, the height looks awesome, the first turn and beyond vertical drop look fun. But it seems to get very repetitive very quick. Granted there is only so much you can do with such little space. Regardless it would still be a fun experience.

You know what, I think I have just found the incentive to finally visit the United States. I mean I have always had it on my mind, but this baby here looks so insane and incomparable to anything else, that I just HAVE to ride this! It's a good thing that it doesn't open next year so I'll have some more time to save money

 

Let's hope the final product looks and rides as good and/or even better than it looks on the video. The lift hill will probably take several minutes to reach the top and the first elements all the way up high must really induce some adrenaline!

Repetitive how? Did we watch the same POV?

I think they were referring to all of those block and predrop brakes as trims.

 

It will definitely need to be slowed down on its trip down the tower. It looks far better than I would have though.

 

If this is built (IF!) it would require lots of trims. Otherwise it might be a candidate for the "Euthanasia Coaster."

 

I suspect this will also get the record for "most expensive coaster ride" (cost per ticket to ride).

I have to say this looks a lot better than I thought it would and it certainly will be very unique. That first outwards banked turn and inversion (which will surely be the world's tallest) look great (as does the rest of the layout but those are over 500 ft in the air).

Interesting that they used the sound from some B&Ms (including gatekeeper) for the POV.

What on earth are you talking about??? "IF"? The ride is being built, this isn't just some wild concept.

What he said.

To be fair, until the who thing actually opens, we don't actually know. Yes, they want to build it and my currently have financing to do so, but stranger things have happened...

 

You know the point I was trying to make, though. His post made it sound like someone just designed this in No Limits and posted it to YouTube. It has some well-respected industry folks behind it. I agree that nothing is set in stone, but you can say that about any coaster/project that is announced this far in advance.
