Anyone want to make a final prediction on the max height? I’m thinking it’ll be taller than Fury 325, so I’m gonna go with a safe 330ft.

The leaked plans show the drop at being barely over 300 feet.
Oh... oops. Haven’t really been keeping up on this story at all and didn’t even know plans were leaked.

Still excited though to see the theme!

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.

It looks pretty good, but that brake run is comically high in the air. They could have let this thing go on further.

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.
