Skip to about 8mins 40secs.
Actually, look at the 11:00 mark and you can see the track on the spike.
I agree that it isn't the best but I've learned to enjoy a little bit more. My main point was that the HP coaster should be a lot of fun if the BSC can be enjoyed at its level.

Wow I didn't realize it went that far down right there. That is a substantial spike!
What's the spacing on the horizontal bars ( (crossbars) for the track?
so this "spike" will be completely enclosed by a show building? or will it be out in the open?
Cool to see it out in the open, before it disappears forever!
I remember thinking the same thing about Volcano Bay.
The frustrating thing about this project is in about 2 months, the coaster part will be complete and then it could be a year before it opens with everything else going on inside.
Is the train going to be held near the top of the spike for a moment, or just go up and fall right back down via gravity?
Probably held. How long will be determined by how long it takes for the track to switch behind us. Should be just a couple seconds if it starts switching right after we pass it.
Fun to see drive tires on the track in his video.
Bike seating/ motor cycle style vehicles are off the table for sure. Try going up that spike on that type of seating and we’re all flying off head first. It’s gonna have to be regualr sunken in seats with a good amount of lap or waist bar coverage.
As Joe has said, it could be made to look like his motorbike but still have normal seats. Just the theming on outside of the train looks like a bike. I could see a train that’s pulled by the motorbike working too.
They can be like this.
Nah, even that will be super uncomfortable for backwards portions. I don't think the seating will be anything out of the ordinary, even if the ride vehicles might look a little non traditional
I think a head rest is a must for this set up.
I was going to say, I'm sure it will at least have a head rest.
