Guys, Hawg is literally a troll. His entire shtick is to present ludicrous anti-Disney arguments and ignore all information presented to him. Stop engaging, please.

Ludicrous? Was saying Smugglers Run was being overhyped ludicrous? Was it ludicrous saying MMRR’s 2 1/2 D was not going to be that amazing? Was it ludicrous saying patents for “amazing” laser effects were clearly not going to happen in RotR?

I don't think it will have that many show stops to be as comparable. From what I have seen, there will be slower portions like block brakes where a brief animation or scene will be on a screen. The biggest narrative moment being when your vehicles rotate to backwards and launch in that direction as characters interact through brief visual and on board audio.

Well, that’s just ludicrously pessimistic.

Only if you are wanting more theme and less thrill. It is based on what Disney has said, so there is no pessimism intended. Just the reality. Whatever you want to have an opinion on(and we have seen yours posted a few times last page, so no need to keep going) that is fine. I personally would rather a more themed ride too, but Disney themselves, as bad as they are sometimes about marketing something have given us quotes that say this is somewhere between the thrill of RocknRollercoaster and Seven Dwarf's Mine Train, which both have supporting theming but neither have show stops.

I thought 7DMT stopped in the cavern. I've only been on it once, though, so I could be misremembering. Maybe it just moves really slowly.

It's been done - Time Traveler at Silver Dollar City has been open several years - Rotations at high speed. No show scenes, but that's not the subject matter Hawg G thinks can't happen.

FWIW, there is a difference. Time Traveler is unpowered rotation. Iirc it uses magnets in the station to start the rotation right before drop 1. That being said, I don't see why powered rotation couldn't also be done.

Also, having ridden it just last weekend, Time Traveler is one of my favorite coasters. It's crazy smooth on the track (probably has to be for the rotation gear?), similar to velocicoaster.

Indeed, since we have footage of that coaster type being tested and showing that controlled-facing is doable.

This isn't a guess if it exists. It exists. There's video of it. Disney's spending nearly half a billion dollars for it.

Disney isn’t spending that much for the technology. It is already in use on F.L.Y. at Phantasialand in Germany.

Oops, that's for the whole shebang, and not just the coaster.

Disney's betting that much on it working within the whole refurb and build.

For every 7 positive opinions there's going to be 1 unnecessarily dramatic negative opinion.

Just say it's not going to impress YOU. Saying that it's not going to impress others is assuming the opinions of millions of people in the future, some of those people who haven't even been to a Disney park yet and may be impressed by dang well anything.
Good thought but 7 to 1 positive seems about 6 too many😆
