Falcons Fury has a windscreen/shield, is that just for the front car? I wonder if all passengers will need goggles like on Formula Rosa, as its same speeds and environment.

Also good to see all these new coasters appear to have comfortable restraints, all locked in at the waist.

Apparently the windscreen means riders will not need goggles, which is a big plus in my book.

I love how Top Thrill Two's new train looks, especially the paint job, although I do find Vekoma's new-gen lap bars bulky and restrictive. I prefer Intamin lap bars better.

Alll of these look great. But, yeah, Top Thrill 2’s train is on fire.
