New POV of Gravity Group's refresh of a CCI classic Tonnerre de Zeus.

The coaster has new Timberliner trains and new modifications...

• 90° banked hill (unique in Europe)

• 2 high speed curves

• 2 new hills

• 14 airtime moments

* The trains have a backward facing back row

• A new tunnel with special effects

Here's a reverse POV as the last car of each train is facing backwards!



That wave turn looks like nothing else I've seen, either.

Gravity Group first made it 10 years ago on their dueling wood coaster for Happy Valley in China. It's called the High 5 Element.

You can see it in this video after the first drop.

Some of the "far east" woodies look amazing... Haven't experienced it on West Coast Racers but it seems that Premier certainly got inspiration from that element... Now I'm curious if this was the first "high five" / dueling wave turn ever conceived.

Yes it is the first high five. But I wouldn't call it a "turn." It's more an airtime hill with a 90° bank

There are three high fives in the world I believe. Two of them are at Six Flags Magic Mountain.

Magic Mountain has 2 mobius loop coasters that both duel, have a high five, and have a stall. Keep in mind this is the same park that has 4 kiddie coasters that all do basically the same thing.
