I just wonder why they leave two squars open like that while they finish the rest. I mean I look at a picture where they are much further with the wall (having a nice wood like patern on the top and the shield completly black with a gray dragon(?) desing in it.) and those holes stand out because they only have iron fram work to finish the shield. Either you F.L.Y goes through it what I find wierd because it seems like a soundbarrier or a small second ride? (wishful thinking). :lmao:

I also hope the start of this themework now means at the start of 2019 season that ugly fence is gone and instead the area is blocked behind this beautiful wall. And that train off thought brought me back to believe they do plan a 2019 opening.

Edit: I know now where the holes are for. some crazy arch pieces. The wall turns out beautiful though.

Theming at the big wall continues...
Scaffholding and the first metal grids for further Theming appeared on the right side of the wall, also the Theming on the left continues around the corner a little further.


The more interesting thing ist, that more launchparts appeared on the construction site. At least two of them are installed after the Lifthill right after the station and more are waiting to get in place. So a Second launch is as good as certain. :lmao:

Wow, that wall looks like it's getting what are called buttresses,
usually attached to big churchs, like Notre Dame in Paris.

Very impressive, the whole thing so far.
Buttress, in plural.
Talk is Cheap :idea: Action is Pricele$$

For a small preview, they sendet this Picture of the new Christmas Tree carring in Place and create the Ice Surface.

But the more interesting thing is the new designed Vekoma Homepage.
They show a new gerneration model of a Flying coaster, that to me (and many other), has a simillarity to F.L.Y.
Flying Coasters.jpg

According tho the vekoma website, there will be a Darkride section with a story, prepairing the Riders for the trip, than it will rotate the seats into Flying position and launch the Train. This all sounds pretty familliar.... :-D
The Train has also 10 rows of two Seats, like the Vekoma Test facility.

Here is the Original Vekoma Text:

Flying Coasters

On this really unique ride, riders are comfortably and safely harnessed in a prone position. Riders start in a sit-down position and are transported sideways to a dark ride section. They are immersed in a story to save the world using their flying super powers. Prepared to get launched, the track and seats are turns 90 degrees creating a smooth transformation from dark ride to flying coaster from where the flight begins and riders experience inversions, air time moments, near miss moments and a lot more. With their arms stretched out, face down and parallel to the track, this is as close as it gets to flying like superman!

The combination of the different positions of riders, creating a free view dark ride section in combination with a thrill, makes this ride type a one of a kind in the roller coaster industry.

(Soon to be announced)
