I would expect every future B&M dive machine to be built with floorless trains. If they were to build one again with normal sit-down trains, I would be very surprised.

As for the concept art, I can only repeat what others have said before me. It looks absolutely fantastic, and it will be very exciting to see how it will look in real life!

Baron 1898? That has to be one of the oddest coaster names I've ever heard, but the concept art looks really nice, and I think it will be a very fun ride.

I'm very excited to see the layout for this. Although small, I'm still much more excited for this and Gardaland's than any Wing Coaster! I really like Dive Coasters and I'm sure Efteling will do this coaster justice with theming.

^I'm looking forward to the layout too. This looks great now! That lift structure is really nice!

^^ I agree that Dives are much better then the winged coasters and I agree with you on that aspect. but I would have hoped that either the Efteling of Gardaland would built a Flying coaster, these sure seem fun and I still dislike the fact we only have one in Europe like it. But I'm still happy we get these 2 dive's, both look to have some potential and only time will tell us if they do, I mean small Lay-outs have shown to be quite surprising. Let's just hope on some more unique Dive lay-outs.

^It surprises me a bit how there aren't more flying coasters in Europe. You would think that, given how rare they are here, the GP would really eat it up.

Also, finally some concept arts:

Station building

The trains will be similar to the ones at Heide-Park in Germany (6x3) and it will have two in/unload stations, something like Oblivion in Alton Towers.

Thanks to the construction update movies of the Efteling!:

It's a guy (the baron) who finds a piece of gold in an (old?) mine. Ghost appear in the mine and tell the dude not to take the gold, obviously he does take the gold. He then uses the gold to buy the entire piece of property on wich the mine is set. He starts a company to exploid the mine and look for more gold. Sadly he has enraged the ghosts by taking the gold, so all the mineworkers are plauged by ghosts and are to afraid to continue working for the baron.

I gues now its the vistors turn to go look for the gold.

The story will be told in the que line and preshow. So it's likely we can expect another awesome que the efteling has done with the flying dutch man.


Thank you very much for this, sounds fantastic! Now I realise that what I thought was just white mist around the tunnel is in fact the ghosts, awesome!

As for not seeing enough B&M Flyers being built, I really don't think much of them at all, their design restricts their intensity greatly and I've yet to be impressed by one (Gatekeeper, Swarm & X-Flight ridden so far) unlike Dive Coasters which I always enjoy no matter how short.

@ Andybarnes, i think you misunderstand what a flying coaster is. All the coasters you named are wingcoasters. Air however in Alton Tower is a Flying coaster. A wingcoaster is in my opinion one of the most lame coaster concepts of B&M so far. I prefer a inverted, flying or dropcoaster over these. But thats my opinion.

For the ride being build at the Efteling, it looks awesome but to bad the expected layout isn't that long. (Drop in tunnel, immelman, corcscrew/zero-g, helix, hump, brake)
Perhaps the inside section will be more interesting like de vliegende hollander. (waiting part, brake section and part before the lifthill)
I don't think the ride will be boring but for a park with 3 to 4 million visitors each year i would expect something more.
