^Most likely. The cars can only rotate like a regular spinning coaster would, i.e. the seats do not tilt like on other flyers. This also means the track has to rotate with the car/seats when they go from upright to flying.

Eh if it's done at a low enough speed a doubt it would matter much. Hell they could go up the lift in the load position and it would make evacs WAY easier.

Wow, looking really great so far! I'd be more curious on the content at the other side of the wall tho.

Phantasialand have finally revealed some more information on Rookburgh:

Image

following quote has been translated from German:

There's news from Rookburgh that catapults the word "total experience" into a new dimension. Here, everything meshes like gears: The theme world in steampunk flair, the world roller coaster F.L.Y. and… the Hotel Charles Lindbergh!


Seems like a new hotel will be coming along with F.L.Y.

This seems to be the budget hotel, with small rooms like these:

This project will look amazing, shame it's probably for 2020.

Looks pretty cool and a great way to cater to the middle class and below markets!

Maybe the balcony will overlook F.L.Y. that would be awesome.

This seems to be a drawing. I can't see any measurements nor room prices.

It's a drawing of the hotel, with these small rooms in the center. It's a fair assumption to make imo.

Pretty interesting images of F.L.Y.

Also, word has it that this is now due for 2020. So that means we will have to wait another year before F.L.Y finally opens.

I somehow still thought F.L.Y was a codename, guess I was wrong.

Wow, that’s actually an amazing logo! I do hope that there is more than one ride coming with Rookburgh though, or at least room for one more ride.

I thought they had to change the name due to copyright reasons or something? :?:

I recall they couldn't copyright the name due being a too simple/casual/widely used name. As it would easily cause confusion.

I wouldn't be surprised if this was the designed logo IF they could have copyrighted it. Or maybe they are now copyrighting the logo instead of only the name?
