Lol the ride currently features only right Turns. I still think this is for a flying coaster not a dark.( maybe some dark ride sections) They already know how to build a flying coaster, so they only need to test the new mechanical bits.
All hail your great Arrow Dynamics overlords.

I know that's for a mechanical test, but I wonder how long the entire / complete track will be. ;)

Those are electrical panels beside each of those round mounts; My guess is there's gonna be some gyroscopic stuff happening.
Boulder Dash was the only good roller coaster.

I can see that's moving and is also safe, but the ride experience is in mystery lol. :roll:

Looks like it has helices to me also. Maybe it's a figure 8 for testing?

Those supports look tiny compared to the track :p. I'm interested to see what this will turn out to be.

^ Can we expect anything cool, specially from those snappy turns? I personally feel the Lech vibes! :-)

Vekoma has announced during the EAS that they will rework on their Boomerang and SLC concepts and make them using their new track style. So let's hope they will one day test it on their testing yard.

That certainly looks interesting. I really wonder what they are going to test.

Looks like this might be some sort of spinning boomerang, I can't imagine why else it would be testing on their property.
