So it's definitely a modified Saw - should be good, I loved Saw when I rode it over the weekend!

I'm getting stupidly excited over this, especially considering Perth is over 2000 miles from where I live and I probably won't end up visiting until mid next year at the earliest. Oh well.
Trains look great. Can't help but think they'd look a whole lot better with lapbars though - but we can't have it all!

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Fun fact: Perth, Australia is the most isolated major city in the world (there are big cities in Indonesia that are closer to it than the other big cities in Australia). This very well could mean that Abyss will be the most isolated large roller coaster in the world when it opens.

I love donkeys more than me.

^Hope they stockpile enough spare parts ;)

Quite different from when the Huss Ranger broke down at Hansa-Park around 10am - Huss on site at 2pm - ride operational again around 4pm... :b

Looks like a fun little Eurofighter! Great to see parks even as remote as Adventure World getting major additions like this!

Looks like a great new coaster. Hopefully it doesn't get the train rattle that seems to be common on eurofighters.

Just heard Abyss is testing, will swing by tomorrow and try to film it in action.

^^this normally only starts after about 3-4 years - so the first years should be fine.

Test run video of the ride below. I have to say, that airtime hill looks very strong and also seems to provide a very close headchopper with the catwalk of the MCBR. However, the twisted drop off of the MCBR does look like a very sharp transition. I hope it doesn't ride badly with the OTSR's.

It actually looks like a really nice coaster and i'm glad Perth now has a good substantial coaster to call their own. Looking forward to hearing the first rider reports.
