I think the reason the speed is so low is because the train is powered continuously rather than having a launch. (Think PeopleMover). The top speed probably occurs when the train dives down, back into the station area.
It says that the coaster will have three cars, each holding 8 passengers. There are also some comments from the CEO of the park, he says that they tried to get a taller ride but the city didn't approv. He also reveals that another park in Europe is going the get a same type of ride for 2007.

There is another article that Coasters and More has done on the Ball coaster. This one is similar to the article posted on page one of this tread which is from the 2006 show. This article is from the 2005 show. Shows some more photos and some future track designs.
Its about in the middle of the page.
Also check out the Alpine coaster at bottom of page. Looks fun.
