This prototype coaster is being built at the Vekoma factory and looks really weird. It has already been sold based on the different support colors and looks like it will have terrain of some sort.

Interesting, looks like the new powered coaster Sky Dragster at Skyline Park.

Looks to me like the train probably faces outwards from the track, and you likely sit in it with your back facing the track, as a guess. Or at least, that;s what I want it to do haha.

Maybe they are developing their own version of a wing/free fly/4-d coaster? It looks like the track orientation changes based on the type of support.
What are these for?

I'm wondering if it's like the Seven Dwarf Coaster but the train is mounted on the side. Brown supports are creating artificial terrain you think?

It's definitely gonna have some variation on this type of train, my guess is it's 1-sided instead of 2, and the train is oriented above the track rather than off to the side.
Boulder Dash was the only good roller coaster.

It's heartlined so I'm sticking to my theory. Single cars free to swing/rotate about the heartline

Like a free swinging pipeline coaster?

I'm tempted by a mini 4d experience.

My current bet is a flying coaster, but instead of the complicated seat lowering/raising loading system it will just rotate 90 degrees.

Well, the track would be rotated at 90 degree like that flat section(probably the station)after the twist

Starting to look more like a darkride than a real coaster with all these transport wheels...

This isn't the real coaster, this is just a short test track.

Trackwork is about as I expected. I need to see the train.
