    You could be right re the heartline but I would suggest that could be corrected in the design before they even started construction. I'm not saying it will be but it wouldn't surprise me if it was - plus I don't know of any floorless coasters currently in China.

    Maintenance wise I've never heard of the floorless coaster model being less reliable and prone to more costs so I'll take your word for it.

    Changing the heartline would cause new problems such as redesigning supports and might create some clearance issues. As for the maintenance increase, going floorless gives it many new moving parts which can jam or break in general.

    Although, it might just be the angle, but the shaping on the roll looks a bit different from Hulk's roll.

    Part of me thinks it could be possible, more in part due to it being made from the ground up. And as a result, Universal and B&M would be able to tackle the situation head on, understanding how they handled it from Hulk.

    Likely? Probably not, but it wouldn't shock me if it happened.

    It looks like it’s Disney and not Universal?

    That looks like Lotte World Magic Island in Seoul.

    That shaping is... definitely different

    I guess they’re doing the same layout but with more modern track shaping? Seems quite odd.

    Yeah i was thinking it was the angle, but it definitely looks like a steeper angled drop. Thanks for the update!

    It surprises me, but I guess it makes sense.

    Especially considering, this is the scene that ride is being based from..

    Are they doing two JW coasters? The Hulk "clone" and that dome don't appear to be the same coaster.

    Yet more construction from themeparx. I'm still thinking this might be floorless.
