It does look superb, I'd imagine that the first drop on this, as being similar height and angle wise to Leviathan would cause a grey out on that drop.

It truly does does, I think the turnaround Carowinds are using on Fury 325 looks much better than the one Leviathan (Canada's Wonderland).

True. Levaithan was probably the practice one by B&M to ensure they can do a Giga coaster. Now they know they can successfully, this would be the more daring one to start to push the boundaries.

That does look amazing! The overbanked section flows really well into the helix which should add a nice kick.
