That ride looks to small. They should have made a record breaker.

this ride really reminds me of B:TR. the way the drop is really tight and the whole ride fits into a fairly compact space. the only thing that's open about it is the flat spins. it looks like its going to be very intense and a lot of fun. I'm very jelous of you SFNE'ers. this may not be a record breaker or a technological breakthrough, but it appears that you're getting one helluva ride.

Your telling me S:ROS isn't enough? Sheesh ....
That ride is amazing, you don't really "need" a record breaker....

Yea the ride looks like its going to be very intense. Maybe B&M has been hearing some people talk about how their rides aren't very intense and too smooth and stuff, and i think this ride will change all that. Still smooth, but fast and intense.

Yes, this ride does look very intense! The color scheme isn't that great, but I would still love to ride it! How tall is it anyways? 100ft?

I love B&Ms i think they are very intense and smooth. To me a great B&M is coaster perfection, i was just sayen some people have cryed about how they arent very intense and sometimes too smooth.

this ride is could be the equivalent (in intensity) to the inverted BTRs. i cant wait, looks like a tight ride!

Please don't go complaining that it's too small. Batman:TR's are very small, X is Xtremley (sorry) short and I can tell you B:TR's are excellent, and X has had nothing but rave reviews. Wait and ride it, then tell me what you think. Besides, SFNE already has a ride most claim the best on this world in Superman Ride of Steel.

So are the guys taking these pictures tresspassing on SFNE property or are you taking the pics from someone's backyard and using a hell of a zoom lense?

The pics definitely clarify that it is a dive loop and not a immelmann. that's getting me even more excited about this coaster. Looks like it could become my favorite floorless, it seems like most of the floorless lack intensity, this one probably won't.

This ride is gonna be TIGHT. It's gonna be a wicked pissa intense ride (sorry), because it is packed into the size of a matchbox.

There's a dead end road that provides the views from where the pictures are taken.

In 2000, I went in the parking lot around dusk and stood up close to the Flashback track in the parking lot. There was even a trucker in his truck that didn't stop us.

Well I guess y'all were right about it having a dive loop instead of an Immelman. Once the whole coaster is complete, I will redo the NoLimits recreation.
As for the ride being too small, I beg to differ. A lot of smaller B&M's are much more intense than larger ones. Talon, B:TR, and Top Gun come to mind instantly. The park is doing an excellent job using the small amount of space they have. This ride takes up no space in the parking lot. It just fills a small area that was nothing more than wasted space. I would presonally rather have a smaller coaster with more room for future expansion than have a record breaker that takes up all the remaining space.

I don't think it will have a DC comics theme because it is no where near the DC comics area.
Do you think this is all SFNE will get? Maybe they might get another coaster?
This may sound stupid but how do you know this isn't a giovola (best sp i know)?

Giovanola doesnt make coasters anymore. They only manufacture B&M parts. So your half right, half wrong. It is Giovanola manufactured, but B&M's design. It is a B&M though.
