No surprise for me. I heard a couple months ago that this was a compact Chance hyper. I never saw the layout until now so I didn't expect this to be so twisty, but given the space they have it's not really surprising.

Zach and I were talking about this lastnight, but if you look at the track an wheel assembly in this video they are using the old Morgan track and what appears to be trains similar to Steel Phantom at Kennywood. Its a bit surprising, you would think this being a modern ride that they would have used outside wheel assemblies that are on the Hyper GT-X. I am wondering if this is actually based on the older Morgan Hypercoaster or if this is the newer Chance GT-X and someone used the wrong track and train mesh in NoLimits or something... Something to chew on.

Hoping this thing has non-neutered air time like Steel Force does on good days. This coaster looks like it can pack some decent airtime on a few hills, along with some interesting transition forces.

THIS! Leg restraints are one of the banes of my existence and these look especially awful.

For such a compact and tight track that front end looks to be a little too large for all the transitions in the ride.

On another note, Mamba, Wild Thing, and Steel Force are top 10 coasters? Oh god that interview was bad.

It looks like a PAX hellspawn, and I love it.

It would appear that they have pulled the POV.

Here's a working one. Looks like it has better pacing than the Mack ones.

IOE uses Allen Bradley for their installations, already a huge fan of them.
