    I dont really like it it would be nicer if there would be after the dive loop a zero g-roll. And then a c-roll. Thats just typical B&M . But if you like this more then just keep it like this.

    Yes, the entrance isn't shaped like I wanted it to be. I'll fix it.
    I'm afraid interlocking corks won't be possible on this coaster due to the space limits I have.

    HECTIC?!?
    I'll fix it.

    Yeah, it looks a little weird. But I like the cork way better than I high-speed turn followed by a Zero G roll. I hope the Zero G roll will fit in the end result well.

    Yes sir, I'll smooth the track!

    I have space limits since this will be on an expo. I'm allowed to build within an area of approximately 6 by 1,5 meters. So there had to be a high-speed turn between the dive loop and the zero G roll. I didn't like that at all. So I chose to build a Mega Cork, like on Hydra. If it could, I would have built a cobra roll. But cobra rolls are speed-killers, which I can't use on the expo. So I'll keep it like this.

    I love the layout so far! I hope to see a twisty section somewhere.

    Thanks! I hope to do so, but it will be very diffecult with the space I have.

    Haha, yes I get it. This is not a Monster update, but it includes a Monster Test video!

    I fixed the Zero G and made a turn.

    It looks pretty smooth, and I think you have enough speed for a mcbr and interlocking corkscrews after that.
    The signature you have requested is not available at the moment. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    You sir have building swag. Keep rockin.

    That looks awesome Helmer! I hope that your next element can be pretty tall, since lots of speed will unfortunaly be lost in that high speed turn, but i must say, the car's got the perfect speed through every element!

    Thanks! Yes, the pacing was better than I expected. I think this will be enough speed to get the train through every element even on the expo.

    Ehm, no interlocking corks. I have no space and I don't think I have the speed either. Thanks for the suggestion!

    I don't think it's bumpy. It might just be the angle.

    Unfortunately no interlocking corkscrews. Do you also like a single one?

    Ghehe, bedankt! I can't wait to see those faces.

    Well, I couldn't find any other option than doing this...
    (Brakes and station will be next. Lift, brakes and station will be build by Maarten12)
    Still expect another inversion from me.

    Already thought the first corck there was in an odd spot, but now you guys have built a smaller one as well, it's just looking weird. The height loss becomes too obvious imho. Trackwork is fine, just the choice of elements is odd to me.

    Whoa! Missed the whole construction of this. Ik looks very good, just my tip would be that you tried to make your corck(s) look a little bit less stretched out, so or make it some higher, or less wide. I know it sucks to have to re-do something from the middle of the track, so I suggest you did that only to the last corck. Just my opinion, there's nothing wrong with the shaping just that I would make the corck some higher.

    You're doing a great job on this, Helmer! The big corkscrew makes this a very unique coaster. The shaping is perfect!
