Looks like a nice family coaster! I can't tell ya how many times I've gone with that color scheme in RCT 2.

A video of the first tests on Pegase Express has been made available on FB by Theme Parks & More

Here's the link: https://www.facebook.com/themeparksandmore/videos/411997482491544

Additionally, the following album contains few (quite old) pictures of the ride and layout: http://imgur.com/a/Aw7ap

I'd add that a lot of theming elements have been since added along the layout, and the work on the station (which is absolutely massive) is progressing very quickly. I'm personally really excited to see more as I'm sure Parc Asterix will once again deliver an amazingly themed experience.

Official opening has been announced to be on the 10th of June.

POV (the scenery is not finished yet) :



And this one's for Robb. What's worse than a vertical video? Well, that:
Another POV... with a twist

Edit:

Here is another video including the queue line:

It looks like it has a great throughput, which is nice to see.
Note to self: don't be stupid...

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.

I assume the Facebook video was from a Facebook Live post? Facebook Live is super annoying as you can't do landscape videos, even if you turn the camera, so you're actually forced to do vertical videos :roll:

These Gerstlauer family coasters look so much fun, though. From the video I assume the backwards section is hidden from the park? If so, that's a nice touch. It's a shame so much of the ride is next to the car park, and the train storage building is so visible, hopefully they'll be able to hide these a bit.

Yep, it was a live. Good call I didn't know Facebook was annoying there.
But anyway the number of people starting to record vertically (the smartphone then tag the video as it) and then only turn it to landscape is too damn high still.

Also no, it's actually the opposite. The backward part is visible from inside the park, as well as a part of the foreward trip. But the first drop and the part next to the parking lot is more or less hidden from park guests.

Looks like a pretty good family coaster, but I've got to say, that train looks hideous!
