And the layout is exactly as I expected it to be. The only thing that looks weird is the direction of the zero g roll. It kinda feels weird to have those rotational stops in there.

On the press release today they also showed a virtual onride movie:

Looks like a neat neat. It's probably because the FPS aren't cooperating Dirk.

Do you mean how they break the flow of the rotation Dirk? I imagine it's to stop the entire ride being made of right rotations haha.

I think they went killer on the theming because of how short the actual ride is.

The park isn't into just dropping in a ride into a random location and let it be. It wants to build a themed ride with a full storyline and actual visual theming that fits the storytelling.

Efteling is more of a family park anyways so I can't see them adding anything huge.

BTW if you go on TPR and look at the last few pages of the Efteling thread you will have a great time!

Robb is bashing Europeans for "overhyping" European rides and the argument is hilarious.

Between the theming and the zero g roll, this is might be the ride that makes me enjoy dive machines!

Looks like a fun ride, probably a perfect fit for the park. Nothing special as a coaster for us, but just right for them. Still haven't tried a dive machine, I'm sure they're fun but such deliberate pacing doesn't really interest me as much as some other ride styles. Drops do look great though.

Also no it's not worth reading into on TPR, I did out of curiosity, really sad how people are being treated. Sooo yeah save your time lol I shook my head enough for all of us. :P

Hehe, I've been here for years and I've seen many Dutch people come and go. Now I'm pretty much wondering what happened to most of the Dutch members who used to be extremely active. :lol:
