Anyone following this ride? Hard to make out the layout other than the fact that it looks quite good.

Looks great, only a little on the short side (108 feet?)...which of course might not be a bad thing.

Thanks for the link, I haven't heard this ride mentioned before.

In the photo linked above the train is just cresting the lift, travelling away from the viewer [you can see the station in the lower right corner, with the final sloping brake run behind it and to the left].

Following the first drop is a flat 270* turn. The second hill, which the train travels from right to left, can be seen under the first. The third hill is on the far left. You should be able to follow the rest of the layout given that info.

Looks like a fun little ride.

Whoa that looks badass. I wish our zoos had killer coasters. Their woodie there is not too shabby either!

Wish we had a mini-hyper near me...that would pack an awesome punch for a small park!

If the pricetag is right on this one, $14.6 mill , it would be way out of the pricerange of a small park. Otherwise i totally agree with you, would be a great addition for a small park

That $14M figure is misleading; Japanese coasters cost more to make largely because of additional earthquake protection that isn't required in most areas here.

And it looks to be built on a special pier. That's gotta jack up the price too.

What a horrible 3D recreation! Looks like a fun ride though.

Looks like a neat little runt of a ride. Reminds me of something Anton would come up with, if he were still with us to design coasters of the hyper and sub-hyper variety.

looks like a love child between MF & Maverick. It does look cool!
