Wow... that thing is more and more impressive by the hour! Am I correct in seeing that the giant helix will go around twice?

Yes you are Jeff. Holy Mother of Pearl though, is it me, or is that helix like, EXTREMELY small?! It's not very high off the ground either! Man, that has to be going like 50mph just ENTERING the thing! I'm scared. :)
It's looking much better with the addition of that helix. While I'd like more negative G's in my hypers, this coaster will [seemingly] have TWO of the most intense helices ever. I guess this is a good thing!

According to Franco (Giovanola), the train will be pushing 55MPH into this tight helix. I cannot wait.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but isn't the layout of Titan similar to Goliath? If it is, yes, the helices are tight and low and laden with Gs. I blacked out almost everytime I rode the thing. The two quotes that will always stay with me about Goliath: "Thank god for those trims" and "I'd like to try it without the trims just once". I can only hope that Titan is the same.
