This is a video from May 11th :
They placed a lot of "wrapped" used testing pieces of track and supports to block "some" of the view for geeks like me to take a peek at it.

Did a quick visit today Jun 14th 2017, shot a very short video of the test train going through the twist and returning to the starting position. Nothing visable new to the train.



All the info and pictures : here.

I am starting to think that this is the prototype for the launched flying coaster F.L.Y. At Phantasialand.

I'm not in any way seeing how this looks like a flying coaster.

On page 24 aren't the trains in the flight position ? I believe the carriages will rotate for boarding/unloading . Just speculation but with Phantasialand about to build the worlds longest flying coaster, and something never before seen , I thought it might be a possibility.

When the track is rotated at 90°, the seats are upright. You can have the station, and why not a dark-ride part.
When the track is upside down like a inverted coaster, the seats rotate on a vertical axis and are now in flying position. ;)

I just removed a lot of bickering from this thread. I have no desire to do this again.

Please respect Vekoma's wishes regarding this project--and cut out the name calling.

Thank you.
