Today, on a French TV Show, Parc Astérix's development manager has announced that the park is currently working on a new LSM Launch Coaster which should open by 2021. He said they took inspiration from Phantasialand's Taron. https://goo.gl/WJYjfK

Holy sh*t if there's a second Taron in the world
Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

That park has been expanding quite a bit recently. Hope it's a badass ride!

Oziris came after Black Mamba so maybe he also took inspiration then

Just clone it and ditch the trim brakes before the ending bunny hills. I'd take it.

I doubt it will be a clone. I see it with a vertical spike like on Soaring With Dragon at Hefei Wanda Park. They were very interested in a coaster which features a vertical element in a TV Show last year or in 2016. They took the example of Oblivion: The Black Hole at Gardaland. They were also interested in the B&M Wing Coaster model with the example of Raptor at Gardaland.

You'd need to dig a big hole if you want to clone Taron :lol:

Not literally advocating for a Taron clone. Just remarking on how Taron could so easily be even better if they let it.

And please no Soaring with Dragon vertical spike. We need a legit launch here!

Well, I think we could get both.

I can't wait for this to open! Looks like I might have to drop by in 2021.

Soooo, a multi-launch Wingrider with a vertical drop and 100+ crossovers?

I've actually just stumbled across the video which mentions the new 2021 coaster (starts at 15:30 and is in French):

Really awesome, but I can't help but think how awesome that top hat could have been as just a regular top hat without that slowing down brake at the top.

Might be for effect and also since the drop is over 100° it has to crawl before dropping just to prevent painful negatives. I could be wrong just makes the most sense. As for this ride I need new pants after watching that!

It’s going to be a great coaster, but likely not as whippy as Maverick.

I feel like BGW’s will be more similar to Soaring With Dragon, whilst this will be more alike Maverick’s style of layout— 1 or 2 moments peeking out above the treelines being mostly low to the ground like Maverick.

As long as they have that airtime launch I am solid with whatever they add.

Absolutely insane lol... I agree I'd probably prefer a natural drop on the tophat but this ride is going to be outrageous.
1-Skyrush | 2-Intimidator 305 | 3-Fury 325
4-Iron Rattler | 5-X2 | 6-Millennium Force
7-Kingda Ka | 8-Voyage | 9-Maverick | 10-Monster

This looks like one of the best rides to date. I personally think the anticipation stall is baller. It's unique, and allows for high capacity with a beyond vertical drop top hat. Plus, the airtime will be insane and that anticipation stall is going to give a cool combination of negative and acceleration forces, especially in the front, you'll be kinda dangling with those lap bars for a moment. This also allows the height and speed to be increased, but an extended ride layout via money saved by slower and lower elements throughout the rest of the course.
