Holy s#!^, I'm riding this in June, I just got happy in my pants.

I'll be jokingly calling this F### Von Nogood, but it looks like F### Von Bloody Brilliant.

Those indoor parts look like they are going to be so cool.

Is the drop going to be enclosed? It's odd how they build the track, then add the building around it. We usually do it the other way around in the states... or do we?

^ I think it entirely depends on the situation. Just think, if the building is made specifically for the hill and constructed prior to the assembly of the actual hill, how would they manage fitting a crane in there...

Well anyways, I am entirely jealous of anyone who gets to ride this coaster because it looks spectacular between the actual ride itself, and its scenery.

The drop will be enclosed in a 40 meters high tower. The tunnel is totaly dark till end of the ride. All buildings will be connected to one large bilding including 3 towers (97 degree drop, the overbanked turn after the drop and the station).

The way how hey built the ride is very complicated, because they can reach the construction area just from one side. On the other side the parks ends, and there is no way for cranes or other large vehicles.

Wait, so the entire ride will be enclosed? Looking at the barrel roll/butterfly turnaround area, that's going to be one massive set of buildings just to enclose a coaster.

^That bit will be out in the open. But the rest of the ride will be enclosed.

but this are not the only things that will be outdoor! Look at the picture above (edit on the page before) from the tophill! there you see supports which couldn`t be build inside a building! Seems that 60% is indoor and 40% outdoor
