That's......that's a lift hill. So this one isn't a shuttle.
You have seen how some parks can make a shuttle with a lift, correct? Gerstlauer comes to mind. I don’t see why they couldn’t be doing something similar to that. Granted most of them are launched, but almost all of them have some kind of backward element.

I'm renaming the thread. Does anyone have an updated layout prediction?

Actually, I think the first helix will be different than pictured. It looks to me like it will drop to the ground and then spiral up. The rest looks accurate.


And yes lift hills can be used on shuttles but I haven't seen a shuttle coaster have a lift with a curve at the top like this, and there's a support for the drop after it.

Switch track. Think like switchback at zdts. Like that same concept.
