Gyeongju World in South Korea has announced the additions coming to their new 3rd gate Snow Park. This park also has the lesser known B&M invert Phaethon. According to the park's website they are getting a Zamperla air race in 2017, and a Zamperla Mega Spin 360 for 2018. Also in 2018 is a B&M dive coaster. based on old plans it seems to be a clone of Griffon and named "Alpine Coaster"

Griffon is an awesome ride. Not a top 10 ride but one of the most fun rides I've ridden. Very reridable as well.

If these plans continue. I might plan a trip for 2018 into South Korea. Asia still has plenty of awesome parks that are high up on my to-do list.

The park has released this image and said that the ride will open in 2018 and be built by a renowned Swiss manufacturer which thankfully rules out a knockoff.

^ The park itself looks, as you can see, compact, but the Dive does fit in! Holy cow! :D

It's supposed to be a Griffon clone but there's nothing built yet to indicate that.

I always find the dive machne drop supports so odd since they're all angled.

it's because they're making multiple triangular arches using the track for the other half of the span

I think I see sewer pieces. I bet this will have a splashdown as well.

Looks like track is complete. Seems B&M altered the entrance into the brake run as it's missing the little dip into it that Griffon has.
