They won't start building untill the 1st of September. I hope someone living close to the B&M factory could give us some update images of the plant, if we can spot any track already. It's quite a ride to go there from Holland. :)

Be warned these are not the concept arts of the current coaster!, but one from the time before De Vliegende Hollander (, it is said it was one of the candidates, but it became DVH. (Concept arts by Lex Lemmens R&D and Michel den Dulk Designer; wich is now working at Disney) Location was supposed to be where now "Station de Oost" for the steam train is.

And you love rumours; people think the tunnel will feature 2 tracks. (Drop + return track.) (Between those white things.)

Any sign of track at the BM factory thingy?

Confirmed: The tunnel will be 10 meters deep.

If that's the case I get the following numbers;

Height;
Python: 29 meters
JeDD: 25 Meters
DiveCoaster (By dutch fans also known as "Hoogmoed".): 27.5 meters + 10 meters underground.

Lengtht:
Python: 750 Meter
JeDD: 1620 Meter (2 tracks)
DiveCoaster: Unknown (I hope it at least as long as the Python, but that's a bit optimistic I think.)

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

^ Could be me but didn't they just announce the tunnel not the actual depth?
I don't believe the Dive will be 800 Meters long, they did announce it would be longer than Krake but (according to RCDB) is 475 meters, I doubt they add 325 meters to it. I do however hope 600+ Meters track. Personal opinion here.

Anyway nice to see construction going on. I been last Sunday but yeah nothing special about it. I do think It's a nice big piece of land and I will enjoy seeing this coaster rise before my very own eyes.

Not confirmed.
The tunnel is confirmed, and the ride should be finished in 10 months. The length or depth of the tunnel is nog confirmed.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!

Not sure whats going on here since the image is clearly photoshopped (I mean the drop goes through that crane) but its popped up on some dutch news site. Make of it what you will.

Got a small update for you guys made by myself yesterday:
Image
So these are on several places around the construction site.
Image
Station comes here.
Image
And Tunnel comes here.
Image
All kinds of diggers on site.
Image
That's a good load of sand.
Image
Some equipment.
Image
Image
Tunnel and station from an other angle.
Image
That's a huge one.
Image
Containers.
Image
These will hold the sand so they can make the tunnel.

So work is processing nicely.
