...and some facts from the accompanying article:

 

- this is at CSM in Belgium, which has been making for parts for Mack for 10 years now

- this ride for Walibi uses 600 tons of steel

- CSM has 4 buildings each the size of a football field

- they're currently working on 5 coasters

 

edit:

 

And a little extra fact shared by Mack:

 

CSM usually doesn't make track. This ride is an exception, as the track is relatively simple. All "twisted" track is still exclusively made by Mack themselves in Waldkirch, Germany.

Glad to see a little bit more on how this thing's going to work. I'm even more curious now, because that video gives me the idea there won't be a splash when the car's traveling backwards - I wonder if there will be a retractable floor of some sort to quickly lower the water level, or if I'm just thinking too much into it!

This is a cool idea. Better concept then Girrafica that was at Holiday World. Hopefully these pop up all over the place.

Pilgrims Plunge wasn't a bad concept, it was basically just a gigantic shoot-the-chute. It wasn't marketed as a roller coaster (was it?). You're better off comparing Pulsar to Divertical.
