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!

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.

That's like finding a Waffle House with no white trash in it.

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.
