Viper at Astroworld is the only coaster I can think of with an enclosed first drop.

I'd personally rather keep the first drop open and stick a tunnel at the bottom. The enclosed first drop would ruin any potential view at the top. Then again the park probably stuck the tunnel there because of the neighbors.

I miss Viper...My second roller coaster ever after Batman:The Escape

I'm slightly underwhelmed. Everything looks rather fantastic until you hit the one minute. After that point, the coaster simply seems to surrender all of its speed. In fact, I'd go so far as to say sections after that look rather slow and boring. Maybe it's just all the recent innovation from Rocky Mountain Coasters and Gravity Group, but I'm not feeling this one.

It's just how I said it would be when they released the POV animation last summer - underwhelming!!!
