Yeah the trains are eight cars! And yes, there are two of them.

Our awesome Assistant/Moderator CFC Chuck was there covering the event and will provide an excellent and detailed Photo TR by tomorrow. Robb was there more for helping the park with filming and stuff. I will try to talk to him later to ask about the headbanging and front seat vs. back seat questions that have been asked in this thread.

Funny how,when the layout was revealed last year people complained about the lack of hills but looking at the speeds that the train takes through the entire course no extra hills are needed as all that "flat" track absorbs the speed generated by that drop.

That trim doesn't seem to affect the intensity of the hill one bit so I wouldn't worry about it too much.

Robb looked slightly hesitant to ride then!

I would be after riding so many times I guess. But MAN this thing looks intense, glad to hear positivity. I hope this ride ages well though =/, Intamin's aren't the best for ageing.

^^The trim DOES affect the speed and airtime on that hill pretty significantly.

Also, Ace of Cakes, Duff Goldman was there with an awesome cake and they were filming an episode for his show so we'll keep an eye out for when that airs as well!
