Maybe the second paragraph where it says:


The investment for the project will be between 5 billion yen and 10 billion yen. It is the park's largest investment since it built an attraction based on the popular film "Spider-Man" in January 2004 at an expense of 14 billion yen.

This article confuses me. It explains no details about the ride type or manufacturer, just the length and speed. I cant really get excited about a ride just based on those facts.

Does anyone else think it sounds like it could be a small hyper of some sort? Either that or another intamin hydraulic launch. Those are my best guesses, but either way, probably a nice addition to the USJ park.

I agree. For a second I thought my skimming skills were failing me.
