What is interesting is the graphic shows no brakes on the drop. Hopefully, this dream of a brakeless El Loco will come true. It looks like S&S is adressing all of the problems I have heard about these things, and, hopefully, it will have NO BRAKES!

^The animation also doesn't show a chain for the lift hill. YEAH NO PROPULSION SYSTEM.

Seriously, there's NO WAY they can safely get you down a 122* drop with that steep of a crest without brakes at the top. Unless you enjoy some very, very extreme discomfort.

^I have to agree with you on that one...just look at Takabisha, as well as all other El Loco models...they all have brakes before the drops. Just wait a few days and maybe by then they'll have the lift & drop partially done. Even if the trim doesn't go on immediately, you'll be able to tell whether or not one will go in place...

Why are trims on that drop such a bad thing? If El Locos didn't have trims over their drops, you wouldn't be feeling airtime - you'd be feeling PAIN.

Agreed. Even with lapbar trains, without the brakes, that drop would be incredibly painful especially in the nether regions...

If you were not absolutely stapled....owowowowowowow...

As I said in my original post I am not the biggest fan of Mumbo Jumbo, I found it smooth but incredibly dull... I found the drop to be really tame, and that outward bank curve just seemed pointless, I really wanted it to be good but it is what S&S describe it as, a family thrill coaster. The first drop would be way better without trims IMO, it wasn't the OH S__T moment that Robb had me believe but instead an OH THAT WAS A BIT S__T moment. (End Rant)

A 122 degree drop is NOT intense?

On this one, the car will be heavier, so maybe the drop will be faster...

What???? When did I ever "make you believe" this? I don't think I've ever talked to you. Do not ever put words in my mouth again. Thank you.

With this being a taller ride though will t be more on the thrill ride end than the family thrill end??

It looks like since my last post my wish for new trains have come through, Lethal Weapon is getting new trains, by the looks of things they're KumbaK trains... I don't live on the Gold Coast anymore so I can't get pictures but there are pictures on one of the Australian sites, not sure if I can post a link though?!?! They seem to have a lap-bar vest thing going on, similar to Vekomas new designs.

So it seems the whole park is getting a refresh at the moment, the Bat Shop at the front is also now opened bigger and is now DC Comics, obviously preparing to link itself up for when Green lantern opens!
