Perhaps we'll see one zero-G roll somewhere, two rolls out of turns (replacing those elevated flat turns) and then a reverse cobra roll like Twisted Cyclone at the turnaround.

Am I the only one that really couldn't care for inverted stalls?

^ I think the inverted stall's are RMCs best inversion. The ones on Joker and Goliath are awesome.

But to each their own.

I do remember that the park confirmed a unique element, I'm now confident that has to be a inversion, maybe one that counts as two (like a Batwing or Twisted Horseshoe).
Also if Drop magazine also is said to be a reliable source comined with Looopings, who have proven to be reliable in my eye's, and this rumor has being around for a while now, I can no longer deny it and I have to say it's very very likely true.

I’m still patiently waiting for RMC to construct a zero-g stall that does a trick-track while upside-down (think Wicked Cyclone’s stall but more direction changes). That’s an element I’ve had in mind ever since Wicked Cyclone came out. Just a random thought.

I also find RMC projects 100x more exciting when we don’t know the layout very well (this, the one at Nagashima, Steel Vengeance the first year of construction). I love being surprised by each new piece of track put down.

In short in english:
The new coaster in Walibi Holland is not for people with a weak stomach. Rollercoaster Untamed, that opens July 1st, will have five inversions. This confirms Walibi-manageress Marscha van Till in talks with Looopings. What kind of elements the ride will feature will be announced by the park in the coming months.
This will mean that Untamed has the most inversions of all the RMC's. This will also make it tie with Condor on having the most inversions on one ride in the Netherlands.

I really don't know if I can trust this. Looopings has a reputation they wouldn't shout something like this if it isn't true according to their sources. On the other hand RMC hasn't done more then 4 inversions, that doesn't mean they can do 5, but why do that with such a small design? I've easily dismissed this rumor up until now because I heavily believed it wouldn't be more then 3 but now looopings also claimes 5. This makes me wonder what RMC has in store for us. I don't know if I'm exited by this prospect, on the one hand RMC can make a great ride with 3 or 5 inversion I have no doubt in that, on the other hand their inversions aren't what makes the rides great.


Walibi Holland themself has also confirmed it on their official social media channels. https://twitter.com/WalibiHolland/status/1088450296785690632

Episode 4 is up:


So some new details:
-There are, as confirmed on Twitter and Facebook, 5 inversions on the ride.
-One Inversion is a Step-up Under Flip as the first half of the turnaround.
-The second half of the turnaround is a 97 Degree Outward Stall.
-Highest point has been reached.
-There is also a clear focus to finish the parts of the ride that connect to the park first, to peak guest interest.
-Episode 5 will show more about the themed area.

I'm happy with the turnaround, A twisted Horseshoe element would have been way to predictable here, and the turn coming down so low makes the ride much more appealing to watch. Also when the Highest point got reached this Wednesday there where also a lot of pictured to be found of the Micro Bunny after the First drop, turns out it's barely touching 2 meters in hight what seems really low. Also the next episode will focus less on Untamed and is (if pattern persist) the last episode before the park opens so I wonder how much we know by the time the park opens. I'm excited to visit the park on openings day and see the construction for myself.

Walibi Holland has again revealed an element of the new roller coaster Untamed. The hybrid coaster will have five inversions. Last month, the first inversion was announced: a 'step-up under flip'. The second inversion is called an 'uphill barrel roll'.

"This is an inversion where you travel low over the ground, with a slight slope up", a spokesperson explains. "The element comes in the section after the step-up under flip, before the brakes."

I'm pretty excited for this one! Starting to remind me a lot of Twisted Timbers at Kings Dominion, smaller but definitely packs a punch!

Is this element placed after the what used to be flat turn near the end of the ride? And partly takes up what used to be the first brake? Because I had two wishes for the conversion: 1. Bring the turnaround to the ground. 2. Move the first brakes to next to the Stalls. These two wishes would both have been come true if I see the right location.
Also if I remember correctly today the park actioned parts of Robin Hood and the people who are there are getting a tour on the construction site of Untamed. I'm just hoping on some pictures.
