God I hope the rumors are true about the 5G helix finale. The construction so far looks like its going to make for a very Nemesis-like ride with lots of trenches (which is 1 reason why Nemesis and Montu rank so high for me)Looking at the rest of Phantasialand, it looks like its going to be a really nicely themed ride. Glad I decided to go to Phantasialand next September instead of this one. Hopefully its truly more "old school" B&M and comes equipped with forces, otherwise I'll be very disappointed.
Claude and Walter, please don't make this another Hydra or Silver Bullet!
That ride looks really impressive. If it looks anything like the artists renderings, it will be awesome. The article says its will feature 5 inversions, and be a "high G" ride. The waterfall that goes over the beginning of the lift hill looks really cool too.
Its amazing how how far down they ended up digging, based on the pictures. This looks like it will be a great ride when its all done.
If that rides turns out with half of the themeing that the artwork has, it's still going to look amazing. Man, I'd love to visit that place. We do have a former exchange student that lived with us from Germany, so maybe I can work out a trip there plus Europa and Holiday Parks.
So yesterday they started with the construction of the first drop and in the new pics you can see that the building under the lifthill gets higher and higher and the lifthill is already partly in the building. So here are the newest pics from the 9/7:
And here are a few older pics from the 9/6, where you can see that they already started with the theming of some underground sections:
