    I mean, I've seen enough Mack Powered inverts vs Intamin Blitz coasters to know that the Intamin Blitz will be the better coaster.

    There’s more than just “fast, high, EXTREEEEEEME!!!” that one can use to judge coasters.

    Imo, Big Thunder is a lot more fun than something like King Da Ka.

    Fair, I think its just better to wait and actually see what the product may look like/end up being like before you try ending the conversation on which is the better ride lol

    I would agree with that. Because Kingda Ka isn't a very good coaster. Velocicoaster will be.

    I get the feeling the JW coaster for Beijing will be more of a relaxing flight around the mountains and aviary than a thrill ride. Which is great, I think we need more rides like that. Velocicoaster will be more heavy on thrills but lighter on theming. So, might be a matter of opinion on which is better...

    In either case, it's great to see two new attractions being built at the same time in two different parks rather than clones.

    Anyone know if the Beijing coaster will have AAs?

    I mean thats the difference here, one is more family the other is purely thrill. Im curious to which one will make the overall "better" attraction as a whole but this will likely come down to preference. If JW does include lots of AAs and such inside those mountains than that to me sounds like a better overall experience. Hyped for both and they both open in 2021 so the direct comparisons are likely to only continue.

    Do we have any knowledge on what the new rides are supposed to be like? As in Gyrosphere, KFP boat ride, JW Coaster, any new Minions ride. Just wondering what we should expect for those experiences.

    Heard gyrosphere way change to Spider-Man esque vehicles, and possibly takes more inspiration from that than people brought up. Boat ride seems to possibly go trough the actual land at a point in a river in concept art. JW coaster is probably much more kid oriented than people expect, and the dark ride is the main ride of the land from what I know. I think blueprints leaked that the indoor super Silly Fun land will have a bunch of flat rides

    So Epic Universe will be the better new park (from our perspective) is what you’re saying ;)

    Both will be amazing. Expect great things with JW, it and transformers are the strongest IP’s in the Chinese Market amongst the lands

    That being said, as a person (USA) who’s been to many of these lands before, I’m more excited for Epic since it’s new stuff and you’re absolutely right.

    Come to think of it, what's stopping them from retheming this to fit HTTYD?

    There’s actually a HTTYD ride with the same ride system at Motiongate Dubai. Our HTTYD coaster is rumored to be like Hagrids but longer and a touch tamer, so I inarguably prefer what we’re supposed to get already at EU.

    No doubt. Most of Beijing is USF Part Two reskinned. Epic, all new attractions and shows, and all new immersive lands. Beijing should be a beautiful park, but not groundbreaking.
