It does look fantastic! Trains are a bit short though which could impact on throughput.

I actually think that the shorter wing coaster trains will work quite nicely with the launch element.

This video backsup my theory of it looking majestic.

This does look really stunning, I am so excited that this works. In theory they could use the technology on pretty much all of their designs except from Diving Coasters.

Don't rule anything out Dalek! A launched Dive coaster could be quite fun. Pointless but fun nonetheless.
