^That 1st shot was taken from the parks official youtube video. I'll post the link below.

 

It was kept hidden in a lot of recent footage, drone shots etc. Now is one of the first times it has appeared in the official footage.

The POV on the site being the TPR video being of Sheikra made me think it was a Sheikra clone but it looks like the second drop will lead into a second immelmann so perhaps a Griffin clone instead?

 

That's A-Okay by me!! The world needs more Griffin's!!

It's interesting to see them use the old school trains/restraints on a larger scale dive machine. I guess that just goes to show how it's a park's decision and not B&M's.

I would say it's definitely B&M's. They design the ride, after all.

 

Also, if this IS a straight clone of Griffon, then that layout would call for the old trains anyway, even though these are 8-across instead of 10-across.

Isn't the track gauge different for trains with vests, versus traditional? I'm not sure if that's the case with dive machines, but I remember hearing that about Banshee when the topic came up of retrofitting existing coasters with vest trains. I'm sure they could make it happen if they wanted to, I mean B&M found a way to fit their trains to a Morgan, but it was probably cheaper/easier to just go the traditional route.

Draken will open May 1st. They also updated some of the older pictures I posted in this thread with that date as well.They're advertising it on the site as being Draken Valley replacing the old Snow Park tab while still keeping a bit of the Midgard/Asgard/Nibelheim theme.
