I think this looks like a fantastic ride. My only disappointment is that KI has some really cool topography and I would have loved to see them use it. But I love Leviathan and Fury so I'm sure this will be awesome even if it were to be 'weaker' than those two.
The long straight section of track prior to Fury's lift is a block as well. It's a holding block in the event that a train B is dispatched before train A clears the lift. Once train A clears the lift, the train on the holding block (B) then starts to go up the lift, while the 3rd train (C) loads in the station. That's how it runs 3 trains effectively.
