^But not always. Adding something around the drop would make it more thrilling and leave that door open. I hope that is the plan. Looks pretty barren around the track so far, no signs of any theme elements down there yet. They are promising some kind of "world-footprint" though...
I hope if they do they have a cool effect that makes it look like your actually time traveling or going though a wormhole and so on. ;D

I'm sensing some theme around the idea of time? Anyone else getting that vibe? The should call it Time Traveler.  ;D

1.21 gigawatts :P

I think everyone is hoping for a launch through a time portal.

So I guess the launch will get you back up to the station?  Still don't understand how the train gets back to the station.

I kinda think the legitimate time travel theme would be kind of hokey and out of the tongue-in-cheek nature of the rest of the park. The original pitch with the con artists was a lot more suitable, IMO. There are ways to do it, like sdcfan88 laid out, but meh... I'd like it to have some kind of tie in with the city, as they always do. I'm sure they came up with something good.

^Have you see Maverick? Same sort of thing. Launch halfway through gives the ride more than enough juice to speed back into the breaks. Plenty of coasters with launches in the middle now actually. Helix being the most notable since it is also a Mack.

I will come out that the reason why I was originally opposed to the Time Travel theme from the concept is that I never bought into the whole con artist thing as I felt it was out of character for HFEC's theming style as they try to stay PC and as family friendly as possible. I originally called it a red herring because of this as I don't see them "giving glory" to con artists with an attraction, hence the interview with Joel Manby when Outlaw Run debuted.

EDIT: Here it is. The interview 12 minutes in echos this: https://youtu.be/fDgZM_sWa7Y?t=12m6s

And to clarify I am by far not a PC nut, but on the flip side I actually thought it was silly they removed the gun/gallows scene in FITH but that is a whole other discussion in itself.

New photos were shared on the sdcfans Facebook page.  You can view them on there or you can view them on MIG with some commentary.

What do you think the chances are of this being the first coaster at SDC with a lighting package on the actual cars?
Something simple like Helix has.

IF you don't want to see the layout of the ride - don't go looking around the internet.  It has been leaked.  This is just a mere courtesy warning.  Also a reminder, please DO NOT post a link or the actual photo of the layout here as we want to follow the park's wishes of being the ones to actually release the image.

That's really unfortunate if there's been a leak again. Friendly reminder that anyone who leaks official info on here will be permanently banned. Photos and speculation are always OK, but don't ruin the fun.

However, it wouldn't surprise me if its fake. A lot of idiots love to make fake layouts in NL and pass them off as real to get attention/clicks.

There is a name/logo going around too. It is very well done I will say, but I suspect its a fake too. I also cannot get the google reverse image search to work on them.

I saw the logo - it looks fake. It's not hard to make something like that if you have some decent editing software which isn't hard to come by. It doesn't look like a real coaster logo though - the grey silhouette would be hard to print and look awkward. I am pretty certain someone made it for fun.

It's pretty annoying though. Let the park do its thing. We are so close now.

The name is wrong in the logo I saw.  They also had a silouhette of a Big Dipper twin on it which won't work with the station configuration. 

The layout I saw pretty much matched earlier pencil drawings that were leaked.  I guess we'll see.

Can you describe the order of elements?

That would pretty much negate my post above about NOT posting the layout before the park releases it.  If you want to sin you'll have to put in the grunt work yourself.
