I've heard about this project for a while now, but more info is now starting come out about this. So a small french park know as La Récré des 3 Curés are receiving a new roller coaster in 2020. This will a custom Gerstlauer Eurofighter. The park have begun teasing the project on Facebook:

The park currently has only one roller coaster, a Soquet family coaster know as Grand Huit, so this will be quiet a considerable upgrade and definitely put this park on the map.

The OTSR is a choice from the park. I believe they said they prefer it because people feel more safe with OTSR rather than with lap bars. To be honest I'd have preferred lap bars.

Hmmm... It looks slower than I hoped it would run. Maybe a bit of speed will increase throughout time. :3
