Hey, at the end of this post, there is a link for a AIR photo. The track looks like it's very close to the ground, and when the train goes runs it's track, riders are going to be freaked by how close the train will be to the ground.

Looks like the ending helix on Batwing. Deceptively close to the ground when you're on it.

The same thing happens on Stealth, you go over the log flume so theres tin roofs on it. They just sort of appear out of nowhere. Its freaky!

Don't forget guys, that may not be the final height of the land under the ride. At this point in construction, I'm willing to bet they aren't to worried about ride clearances yet. Also, it does appear that there is a small trench under the track, but then again, my eyes might be playing tricks on me. And if there is a trench under the track, that completely goes against my earlier point. God, I'm so confused.

Has anyone seen the cars for the ride yet?  I am looking forward to see how they designed their's and compare that to the Vekoma Model.  I hope they have built this ride so people of 6'5  can ride.

I like the pic of the drop and the inversion.  that thing looks awesome!  anybody wanna give me a ride over to England?  I'll split the gas money with you!  airline fuel to cross the Atlantic can't be that expensive, right?

You can go to this website:
http://www.air.rideas.co.uk/
Somewhere on there, you will fnd other links, and also pictures of the trains, which look awesome! There's even an animation of how they load, which is totally different from the Vekoma models.
I sure hope we can get one of these over here soon!

The Fact that the track in the soon to be station is inverted (like the rest of the ride) most likely means you will load with the train above you. Very Cool!

Check out the first photo on this page.  It'll give you a good sense of its distance (or should I say lack of distance) from the ground.  The photo can be enlarged for better viewing.
