Looks pretty good so far. Seems as though they're going with a 10 car train at least for the prototype, and I can only assume they'll go with a similar number for the full model. One thing that mildly worries me is that it looks as though they're using an on-board motor to rotate the cars, and Vekoma tried that once before with the original Flying Dutchman model, with no success. Hopefully, the kinks of that are handled by now and the ride can operate smoothly once it's installed.

I'd have to say, Vekoma's been on a roll lately, it's good to see them getting better and better. I really like how this design makes for easy loading of riders and just as easy checking of the restraints. One downside I see is that it forces the entrance and exit to be on the same side of the track, although a separate exit platform can help alleviate this to a degree. I also wonder if the launch will be while the riders are on their back or front...

Can't wait to see what crazy layout Phantasialand and Vekoma can think up for this!

I just drove past Vekoma. The prototype drove his rounds, not much more ... What was more special was Stefan Holtman crossing the street, along with 2 men with a Phantasialand jacket. One of the PHL men carried a professional video camera. That is the prototype for PHL, i'm 1 million percent sure.

Finally, there is probably an event at Vekoma this weekend. There is at least one big tent, and I saw that catering was driven onto the property. Why that event is, I have no idea. Maybe for the invited guests of PHL.
