For some reason this new coaster has managed to occupy 3 seperate threads!!! So I have quoted facts that are in the other threads and put them in the first thread to have them in one place to make it easier.

RCDB are reporting the name to be Mythos

It will cross with Blue Fire and Atlantica Supersplash which are the two closest big rides.

Some pics of the terrain:

As you can see the space is ridiculously small for a 35m tall GCI woodie. That's why the rumors say that the coaster will cross over the motorway that you can see in the first picture for the extension of the Icelandic zone. This is a realistic option as the terrain that is on the other side of the motorway belongs to Europa Park.

So the EP posted some artworks on their site

here we have the entrance gate:

station outdoors:

station indoors:

and I guess the next two things will be around the queueline:
'Mimir' the Fountain of Wisdom
Image

and the envy-dragon "Nidhogg"
Image

in their article they said that there will be a station fly-through as you can see in the second picture. There will also be a bridge over that fly through.

The ride is themed around Norse mythology...in my opinion that fits perfect between iceland themed blue fire and atlantis!

I think this will be a great ride!

The fly-through will actually be in the opposite direction as GCI's other fly-throughs. The train will enter from the right in that drawing. The train dispatching from the station will exit on the right also.

The ride is going to be pretty awesome. The interactions with the super splash and Blue Fire definitely add something to the ride. Europa Park is also going above and beyond with the theming for the queue as well. I would highly recommend a trip to Germany for this one. I know I'll be there in 2012!

^Thanks for the info man. Is that a drop under the bridge leading to the station as well? Awesome stuff. Can't wait to see the layout and the details within it as well :)

What happened to GCI having a different drop on every ride? The beginning looks very similar to that of Kentucky Rumbler, but it still looks awesome and of course unique.

Not quite. Kentucky Rumbler is pretty level for the most part of the turn, this one goes down from lift and just keeps going down.

My fave part of this? The Rye Aeroplane style supports. That is one of the most beautiful rides ever created.

This drop is almost a direct take from the Rye Aeroplane as well.

I know the differences and I know that they are not exactly the same, but they go off in the same direction and have similar qualities.
