The only thing I'm bummed about is getting my prediction completely wrong lol

Judging by the scope of work, it's obvious that this is going to be something incredible regardless.

It's so cool to see CW getting some world-class attractions after years of mediocrity in their coaster lineup. I was losing hope when Paramount put lipstick on a carnival coaster and calling it Tomb Raider ;)

To be fair, the flat ride lineup has been incredible so everything that they're doing is really adding balance and excitement.

This is getting really exciting. Thanks Hanno, looks like the trains could maybe make a difference? The Behemoth trains completely caught us off guard. Agree that a DIve, Invert or Flyer are most likely out of the running. I'm still clueless as to what this is going to be-- congrats CW on keeping it that way for all of us!

Am I the only one who thinks the turn radius on those track pieces looks too small for it to be a wingrider?

Juding by the pictures on the previous site, it will be a wing rider. the flying coasters use the round style of track, while both Raptor and Dollywood's new coaster track use the straight ones.

A dive machine has a mix of both like griffon here:

I'm really ecited about this!

Piraten is *the* roller coaster (after finally riding Expedition Geforce, I'll admit, it was pretty freaking awesome to!) .

It looks like these are track pieces either for the turn out of the station or going back into the station.

What's with the donkeys anyway?

@flizt ... awesome detail find! I usually catch those things. This isn't a flyer. Wingrider track is slightly wider to accommodate the train.

Mini-dive machine like Krake ... final answer. Expect a splash brake since Behemoth doesn't have it.

The track on site is for the turnaround from the station to the lift. ;)
