Probably like the day the ride opens? I don't know.
Ok but how desperate you have to be to voluntarily fly from another country to go to Thorpe?

This will be amazing and ballistic, Phantasialand probably cant fit a wing because of their clearance issues ;P

Official POV? Not likely. You're just gonna have to wait until some fan films one.

New structure has gone up recently. This is believed to be a sound wall as well as being there to separate the themed areas:

They have some of the worst noise,height and space restrictions but they keep on building massive projects.
I respect them a lot.

It's crazy, like considering the amount of praise Alton Towers got for Nemesis - Phantasialand literally took that example and multiplied it by 100.

Yeah despite the parameters they've been dealt, it seems like an absolutely insane park...

When they're building something I often say Jan Rouven has returned. (He is a magician who performed in the park's main show for one year.

I also often call the park Baggerland (Diggerland) since that's how they start every construction.

The park is definitely on my bucket list. That being said I think the park has dragged on not announcing diddly for this ride for long enough.

More details and green paint has been applied to the piece of theming:

Looks like scaffolding to a tunnel for a certain track segment possibly to where we see the previous launch segment continue to. Possible vertical launch??

That would be a perfect setup for a vert launch into an inversion can't wait for this to be completed!

Yeah I'm ready to see some official-ass layout info, but I don't know if we should expect anything very revealing from Phantasialand. They didn't reveal squat for Chiapas, and if I'm remembering correctly, Taron pretty much just had an aerial blueprint and an official name floating around.

You definitely won't get a layout (the Taron aerial blueprint was fan made).

Phantasialand did release numerous construction site updates/behind the scenes videos and blog articles from August 2015 until it opened in June 2016. And they have promised more of those for Rookburgh/F.L.Y. (a Phantasialand camera crew were even spotted at the Vekoma Factory last year filming the prototype) however none have been released yet.

The reason for the lack of communication so far is unclear.
Is it because there are concerns they won't able to open it in time for Summer 2019?

Or is it due to the trademarking issues they are having with F.L.Y.?
The application to copyright 'F.L.Y.' was rejected due to two other companies in the EU complaining over possibility of confusion with products of theirs. But it is believed the park are negotiating to resolve the situation.
It would be awkward to start marketing F.L.Y. if they end up needing to change the name of the coaster. The park would obviously like to ingrain in public the ride's name (just like TARON was).

That's a fair possibility. They should still release animations and just do what Hersheypark did with their 2020 announcement and label it something like "15th Coaster" :lol:
