I didn't even think about that. I took a quick look at all of the other spinning coasters and with the exception of Turbulence, you're right they're 16 passenger trains.

I don't think its a spinner because the "stiring" sounds like the layout and the labeling on time traveler was x-treme and the labeling on this one is just dual launch.

Great use of a double-entendre lol.

Maybe the marketing is different because Carowinds and SDC use different marketing teams. Just a thought. ;)

The stirring thing could also be referencing the two vertical loops that follow each launching section?

Not marketing, the labeling that Mack put on their shipments. Has nothing to do with how the coaster is marketed . . . ;)

How do you get vertical loops out of stirring??

(Just curious, not trying to be an a$$.)

I always stir things vertically when I cook.

I think the "stirring" is the actual ride sections after the launches so it would include the loop. The leaked layout does show lots of transitions.

Big circular motion? I don't know. I just noticed it mentioned stirring twice and there's two loops in the layout.
