    I would destroy them if that's the case.

    The DK coaster is a brand new ride system recently patented by Universal. It's called a "cantilever coaster".

    looks hella complex. Reminds me when the kuka arm system debuted... amazing tech!

    I was hoping for the coaster being an indoor attraction as the effect would be much better in the dark.

    More so mean most of this has changed due to being pitch art. No Zelda, probably no airships.

    Despite it being "old". Hell, that artwork is new to me too. Very cool pieces, the scenery for that DK coaster looks mighty impressive but if that's just "pitch art" who knows what we'll get. We could get these attractions tweaked down on a lower scale or we could very well be receiving these new attractions on a much grander scale. Time will tell.

    No idea when the official announcement is supposed to happen, but I know that closures and ground clearing is supposed to start by the end of the year.

    Announce what? Universal has already announced that the land is coming to Orlando but nothing beyond that.

    It looks like it's just a car elevated from the track, no? This allows you to put faux track between the vehicle and the create some interesting tricks/illusions, but doesn't seem overly complex to me unless I'm missing something.

    We still dont know how complex the movement will be and the track layout.

    Universal has done some very well done tech with Gringott's, Forbidden Journey and the Spiderman cars.

    Any vehicle movement would be described in the patent.
