Hopefully it will end up like Guardians in that it ends up being really cool and different after everything's said and done.


Hmm--while I like the original Eurosat, it always seemed odd to have a "space-themed" coaster in the park's version of France. I like what I'm seeing here for the "CanCan" coaster.

^I think it was originally a nod to the fact that the European Space Agency's headquarters are in Paris, so it would have made sense for France to get the indoor space coaster (and then for Russia to get another coaster themed to their space program).

But like I said, I really don't mind the change if it works, and everything that's coming out strongly implies this will actually turn out really well.

I like the Visionary Theme they are going for, like the cancelled Discovery Bay at Disneyland

What's funny is that's actually the first thing that popped into my head when I saw the concept art. That and the pseudo Universe of Energy ride being refurbed right next to it. :lol:

Of course, the theme has nothing to do with the Disney parks - which lend their theming from Jules Verne, the Eiffel Tower (both of french origin) or the world exhibitions (which happened 1855, 1867, 1878, 1889, 1900 and 1937 in Paris - granted, the first one was in London).

New new Can Can picture courtesy of EP's Facebook page.

There's red track in the foreground, and grey/black track towards the top of the picture which looks like original track to me, not sure. Perhaps the red track will all be towards the bottom of the ride and there will be scenic elements and it will be lighter (which is why the track is coloured).

^It is the old track. I think they said that they will remove and replace certain sections at a time to make sure that everything line up ;)

I've been following the Eurosat project off and on. But there are two thing still not clear to me.
1. Is this a re-tracking of (most) of the coaster or are they redesigning it?
and 2. If it's re-tracking why not just re-theme it? AKA why was it necessary to re-track?
I read some articles but they where hinting either way.
