Nice! Is there any news on when exactly it is supposed to open? (all I can find is "spring")
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?

Not for the season opening, that's for sure. They are talking about spring time.

Edit: Ok, you edited your post, now I sound redundant. ;) But we don't have more infos anyway.

Man, this thread's been quiet.

Any updates on Pégase Express?

I only found more pics of trackwork next to the park.
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. :airtime: :airtimer:

^I was thinking the same. I'll going to the park for the first time in April and have no idea what to expect in terms of it being open or not.

The park posted a video the other day, but beware, the images of the construction site were shot last november:



RCJP, in April, I fear this won't be open. The only opening date they told is "Spring 2017", which basically translates to "not for the season opening".
But we'll keep an eye at the progression... Oziris soft opened on April, 4.

^Yeah that's what I feared. It's a shame but at least I should have the rest of the park I don't know yet.

A few pictures of the construction are circulating on facebook:

Another video update was posted by the park not so long ago. They mostly talk about theming. It is mentioned that all groundwork is finished and the 17m tall by 23meter wide station has started being built as well. Opening planned in June 2017.
