So it's a boomerang with a chain/cable lift?

Likely with spinning cars. What we're assuming to be the trough for the chain looks a bit strange at the top, though, but not sure what else it could be.

That strange thing in the midddle, looks to me like a guiderail to prevent spinning while on the lift-hill.

That wide piece on the very top, look to me, the postition so workers can turn the coach 180 degrees.

More pictures and info

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

It looks to me like it will be a launched model. The only straight part where the brakes and station could be is before the steep incline without the chain lift. It looks likely that it will launch backwards up the hill, then another launch forward through the course, chain lift up the second hill then backwards through the course back to the station. Possibly while spinning.

What if it’s a 7DMT style swinging car version of Family Boomerang?
