According to this source Toverland will be getting a huge new expansion in 2018 including a new B&M wing coaster.

New B&M Wing Coaster at Toverland in 2018

The theme park Toverland located in the Netherlands will get one of the most spectacular rides in the Benelux. In 2018, the theme park will open a B&M Wing Coaster, stated by Looopings after talks with several staff members.

Toverland will be working with the Swiss manufacturer Bolliger & Mabillard (B&M), known from the Dive coaster Baron 1898 in the Efteling. The opening of this massive investment is scheduled for the summer of 2018 as part of a new themed area.

The sensational roller coaster will be the fourth wing coaster in Europe and the first in the Benelux. According to the manufacturer the ride will be give riders "an unprecedented sense of freedom, with nothing above and nothing below you."

The first wing coaster from B&M opened in 2011 in the Italian park Gardaland. Meanwhile, there are also Wing coasters at Thorpe Park and Heide-Park. Wing coasters usually reach a top speed of 90-100 kilometers per hour.

There has always been rumors about the arrival of a wing coaster, but now Looopings can confirm with certainty that the sensational news is true, though Toverland won't officialy announce it yet. "In 2018 we will indeed open a new themed section with a spectacular new roller coaster, but we can not say what type it is," said the spokeswoman.

That might be based off on the "Flug Der Dämonen" layout. :)

Nice to hear that they will build a new big coaster. I probably should get a season pass for the next season. :mrgreen:

This could be very interesting. Wing Coasters aren't really known for their extreme intensity but they do allow for maximum interaction with theming. If they get a good thrilling layout, they might strike gold with their quality of theming. :)

Maybe that new track spotted at the B&M Plant is for this park

Today Toverland has confirmed the new wing coaster. They are also adding a Mack boat ride in this new themed land which will cause Toverland to become 1.5 times as big.

This is the map that was included with the permit request:

The colorisation and wing coaster layout was added later (not by me).

Grey blocks represent buildings, whose functions can be guessed:
HER will be restaurent/food point
BOA boat ride station
KST castle: wing rider station and boat ride indoor scene(s)
PLA playground
KID kiddie zone/kiddie ride

The blue ribbon is the layout of the boat ride

Black is the rumoured layout of the wing coaster.

EDIT: here is a map that shows the location of the new area in relation to the rest of the park.

I really hope the layout for the wing coaster is better than that. That's one of the worst B&M layouts ever made.

I'd say the B&M Flyer featuring Dive Machine elements! What an impressive design! :D

That's a fan made layout and not the official one. I hope B&M aren't stupid enough to design a layout like that.

It's fan made but based on the real one.

Is it really confirmed that this will be the layout? I know that before the Efteling built Baron 1898, they also had to make a permit but the layout of the coaster on that permit wasn't anything like the real layout.

Layout has not been confirmed. However, the rumoured layout was put online before the permit application and it lines up perfectly with the station, the lake and other features of the area. So I'm pretty convinced the final layout won't be far off. Doesn't mean the ride's gonna be bad. Plenty of wing coasters have uninteresting top-views.

The onride that person made is pretty decent. I hope it does a little bit more than what is presented when it's complete.

Looks pretty cool to me. That first low turn will probably be pretty intense if it's like Swarm (shaped similar in the fanmade). The drop could potentially have some interesting forces but I just get that feeling they won't design it without the classic in-line twist.

I still hope the layout will be a lot better then that fanmade one. If it's going to be anything like that, then it will be the least wing-coaster out there.
