Too bad that this coaster might never be built at Hopi Hari, since they don't have money to do it.

Actually if you look at the picture carefully, you will see that it doesn't look like lapbars, but just the regular new Intamin train that is being used at Green Lantern (SFMM).

I was told that the OTSR part will be attached to this train later, as you can see on the picture below.

Skyrush is what they look like, small contact point and all.

^ Shouldn't really matter since this is supposed to have the same layout as the existing ones except for the drop so there shouldn't be the significant airtime that skyrush has. The ones on Lex Luthor are basically the same and are fine. The only thing I'm dubious about is the lack of lateral support for the hearline rolls.

It's not the airtime that makes them bad, it's the positive forces that push the lapbars past a comfortable level on your legs. If this coaster has strong positive forces, the same pinning will occur.

The new coaster was put on hold for another year when the accident on the drop tower happened, not because they ran out of money.

The owner of the park said he wants to re-start the construction in the first half of 2013.

That's not what happened. With the accident the attendance droped considerably, so they had to postpone everything. The Justice League area was postponed to December and opened partially incomplete.

Since last year the park is facing an attendance of around 2000 people a day. A lot of the rides are closed due to lack of parts to keep them running.The park can't sell or replace those rides, since they were all used as a guaranty for the loan the park got from the National Bank. Most rides at the park are operating in shor hours due to lack of operators. If that doesn't mean "run out of money" to you, I don't know what does.

So of course the manager (not the owner) will say to the press that it was all intended and that they are gonna re-start the construction soon.

Is there any update on the new coaster? Has construction even started?
