Our source says that the layout they saw had the coaster leave the station and go through a short dark-ride style indoor section before hitting a launch track and going outside and into a figure-8 style element labeled the "Panorama Curve", which is said to look a lot like the elevated figure-8 element on Cheetah Hunt. From here the train will drop into a series of S-curves before entering a building for another dark ride section that looked to include a 10-meter free-fall drop track element, much like Thirteen. Leaving here, the train appeared to load into a tilt-track style element, much like the one on Escape from Gringotts, dropping the train down and into a second launch track, into an Immelman style inversion, a series of overbanked curves, an into either a corkscrew or zero-g-roll inversion before sliding back into the station one again.
Our source also described the trains as looking quite a bit like Skyrush at Hersheypark, seating 4 across with the outer two seats hanging out over the edge of the track. The trains wont be very long however, featuring just 2 cars per train, and each car only having 2 rows, for a total of 16 riders per train.
Quite a detailed lay-out description, kind off makes me wonder if this is indeed the ride. If it is sound like a fun ride and something worth looking forward to when it opens.

I kind of wish "Panorama Curve" can get replaced by something more original. Cheetah Hunt's Figure 8 is such a signature element that needs to stay exclusive. Just like Gatekeeper's 0G rolls, Thriller's double loop, Outlaw Run's double barrel roll, the whole Olympia Looping and Lisebergbanan's helix.
I hope all these rumors are true. The layout screamscape was talking about sounds really cool and kinda like what thirteen and EFG should have been. Defiantly looking forward to Phantasialand finally getting a new coaster
Still confused about why vekomas headquarters hasn't been burnt down by an angry mob of enthusiasts
I walked past the construction site on the public road today:
- There are 3 cranes and various vehicles by RCS - The Universal-Rock rocks look impressive and are pretty huge, they are already covering the old hall and the parts leading to "Chiapas". They already show windows of an old castle and some wood structures. - The construction side was very busy.
Rumors say that, at the other side of the area (opposed from the rocks), there are foundations for a new building (which might fit to the screamscape rumors of a indoor part with some tilt-element)
There are also some who say that they have seen another straight line of foundations (apart from those in the pit), this might fit to the rumors of another launch, or is simply for breaks.
