When you watch this video, you will see QR codes on signs. I was able to scan them. They take you here.

What I didn't see was the virtual ride that the original article mentioned. Did I miss it?

I thought the animation of the car driving through the black forest was the "virtual ride".

After studying the schematics again as posted on Screamscape, I'm pretty certain Lance is correct when suggesting there's an unannounced "Drop" a'la Thirteen that will take place in the show building.

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

Tek, he means a thirteen foot surprise drop in the dark. Now forget what you thought he meant, and by the time you ride it, it'll be a surprise. :p

Hate the name.

But that being said, I'm sure the coaster will be fantastic.
