That is correct. Raptor was the prototype wing coaster but there hasn't been a prototype launch from B&M.

I'd imagine this has been in development for quite sometime, and I would have thought B&M must have at least been confident in it to accept working for Holiday World on a Launched Wing Coaster.

True, It may have a lot of reliability issues though, just look at Air.

That shade of blue on those trains looks lovely, and really does look good with the orange track in the background.

It looks so weird not having the design for the lifthill catch on the Wing Coaster train.

I know I've said this before, but I do seriously hope this works and doesn't cause any problems for Holiday World.

Oh yeah, never noticed that before. Now you mention it, it does look quite weird and empty in that area.

That truly does look good, it has messed me up with recording and publically uploading CoasterTImes, but hey that coaster is beautiful and I bet it is majestic.
