The Dive Coaster will be close to Georges and the Dragon.

And next to the Flying Dutchman.

It's shame that they have to chop so many trees. At least it's for a good cause ;)
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Knowing the Efteling they put more trees back in other places than they chop down for the new dive machine.

For every tree they chopped they have to replant at least 1 new tree. The new trees does not have to be planted on site. In this case it was almost a field surrounded by trees. So now it becomes a plain field to get better access to the building site.

On Dutch Fora they discuss a lot about this new coasters because the Efteling don't share a lot of information about this coaster.

What we know is: a B&M Dive Coaster, Opening summer 2015, first drop will be 37,5 meters, the track is going to be longer and more coaster as Krake (HeidePark).

Speculation say it will have a Mining industry theme like old Dutch, Belgian and German coal mines. An other speculation tells that the lay-out is going to have elements never seen before on a Dive Coaster.
