They've also posted a full overview of the current (?) progress of the land, including the other coaster (Vekoma family boomerang like the one Farup just opened) and the flat rides:  

Here's a POV of Abyssus which to me looks to be one of the better coasters for 2021:

I’m loving that funky support structure on the lift hill/drop

Looks amazing

I'm curious about the lift system they'll be using on this one as I don't see the gap the track usually has to make room for the catch car/cable. At least it doesn't go as far down the drop as usual

It's a chain lift!

Wow that's certainly unexpected! Nothing wrong with it but I didn't imagine Intamin using a chain on a ride of this size at all. I wonder if there are any particular reasons for this.

Reliability, no doubt.

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

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).

^ 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!!!

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!

The lift supports are really interesting, I hadn't really noticed them before.

 

I'm so stoked for a POV or some testing footage of this monster.

 

Can a park in the U.S. please build a giant Intamin again?

I can't wait for the test runs to begin!

 

I don't think there are too many coasters that give me trepidation, but hanging out on the staircases of steep, huge lift hills? No way, Jose. The one guy in the video above ^ is just smoking on the steps at about 200 feet in the air as if he's not 200 feet in the air. Gulp.
