The rumor has been there for a long time. But now finally track has shown up at the construction site:
Image

The first rumors were that it was going to be a dive machine. But looking at the track that's currently on site. It's more obvious that we are going to get a Sit-down, Floorless, stand-up or maybe it's also possible, that they are going to build another one of their prototypes here?

Time will learn!

Hmm,I've seen the storage area some weeks ago during my trip and took some pics,but the rails were not there,or I haven't noticed them,but I've seen they cleared some land and dried a part of the lake out,cause there is a construction site on the other side of the dry part of the lake,I would say the coaster would go over the walkway between both areas,or they use the space near Colossos,but If they build it near the lake,It will be a compact,squeezed ride...

The straight track at the bottom really looks like a launch section? correct me if i am wrong, but the B&M magnetic breaks curve over at the top?

Well the hyper mag-brakes are curved over, but I'm not sure about the floorless.

Well, if B&M branch out to LIM/LSM launches, they will kick ass!

If B&M started launching coasters, it would be like crossing the streams in Ghostbusters.

Heide just got a launcher, I doubt that's what it is. And the straight part in question may be for drive wheels that aren't mounted yet.

B & M does not and will not ever "launch" a coaster. Mag breaks maybe, launches, not a chance in hell. There arent enough pieces on site to determine the type for sure, but given the floor plates that are there it might be a floorless.

Could be a new prototype for a B&M Dive Lite with only 6 across seating instead of 8-10.

Because they have never built a coaster with an lim/lsm launch? Brakes yet, but launches, no. Hulk was a tire launch and B&M didn't even build that part.

I keep thinking these tracks or those for the X-Raptor !

Look at these two pictures, you can see the same hedge, so maybe it's in a different place in the park, but I do think these are for X-Raptor !

So WHERE DID YOU TAKE THAT PHOTO FROM ?!

They don't look like the same hedge, There is no grass on the first one, which should be behind the pieces.

I've a friend in Soltau and he said that it will be a mixture between Flying Coaster, The incredible Hulk Coaster and Top Thrill Dragster. He read this in his newspaper. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMlPfHDD ... re=related [launch][peakhill]
