Will I be burned at the stake for saying that?

And if you take a close look at the lap bars, you'll see why there are no inversions. Why ruin an awesome ride like that with shoulder harnesses? Its all about the airtime with these babies.
Natty knows what I'm talking about since he rode the Chariot. I'm not sure if Goliath has the same lap restraints and stadium seating as this coaster will, but this coaster will have bigger air than either of those. Carowinds has plenty of inversions, but the only thing close to an air machine they have is Thunder Road.
As it stands, its the 2nd tallest Bollinger and Mabillard hypercoaster in the world, and the 8th tallest steel coaster overall in the United States when its done.
It has some very nice elements on it that have never been seen on a B&M hyper, like the panoramic turn around.
Carowinds is knocking one out of the park with this ride, but most people don't seem to realize it.
I'm not sure there's a coaster that I would take over it, except the Black Mamba, which is an invert, and we already have a top 10 invert with Afterburn (formerly Top Gun).
I love roller coasterz!
And I can't wait to ride it. Looks to be the best B&M hyper in the world. Maybe Silver Star is better, I dunno. But its very close.

Did you see how small Thunder Road looked at the beginning of that video? Damn, this coaster looks kinda legit.
