According to the report the dueler will have one sit-down and one suspended. I assume this is a B&M we're talking about?

Indeed, it'll be interesting to see what the ride quality is like. I'm going to make an effort to get there next year...

I develop Retro Games for macOS, iPhone, and iPad when not riding coasters.

Supposedly the dueling coaster uses LIMS instead of a chain lift and launches you off the top.

This article shows some tiny pictures of the dueling ride. In the 7th one, it looks as if the invert will literally fly inline over the non-inverter. Nice.

Updated construction pictures. You can see the dueling coaster is pretty much complete and trains are on track.
