It could be a wooly mammoth? Or more likely, it's just something that was sitting on the desk of the person taking the pic.

Could someone please tell me what that thing is? If its a ride themed round that thing it would be AWESOME!

Also did anyone manage to ride Bandit after the track work or is no one now alive to tell us?

If you look to the pìcture, theres a part of layout we can see. This could probably be something similar to Thors Hammer in Tusenfryd, that opened this year....

The park finally unveiled the new-for-2014 ride.

It will be a darkride by Riva Digital, using Simworx' Immersive Tunnel: http://www.simworx.co.uk/immersive-tunnel/

Guests are seated inside a large vehicle that is surrounded by a single, giant movie screen.
Similar to King Kong 360 at Universal Studios Hollywood.

No ride name yet, no opening date either. Likely sometime in the summer.


PR in German:

Dinosaurier erobern Movie Park
Film- und Freizeitpark eröffnet weltweit einzigartige Attraktion
In der Saison 2014 startet ein spannendes Abenteuer

(Bottrop-Kirchhellen, 17. Februar 2014) Hochspannung, eine abenteuerliche Reise in längst vergangene Zeiten und Dinosaurier – das verspricht eine neue Attraktion, die Movie Park Germany im Laufe der Saison 2014 feierlich eröffnen wird. Auf rund fünf Millionen Euro beziffert Geschäftsführer Wouter Dekkers die jüngste Investition des Film- und Freizeitparks. Dank modernster Film- und Animationstechnik sowie aufwändig gestalteter Kulissen erleben die Besucher eine spannende Geschichte und werden selbst Teil des Abenteuers.

Die neue Attraktion, die in ihrer Gesamtheit einzigartig ist, entführt ihre Gäste tief unter den Park in eine Urzeit-Welt, in der ein mysteriöser, alter Tempel entdeckt wurde und deren Bewohner mehrere tausend Jahre alt sind. Die Besucher lernen einen weltberühmten Archäologen kennen, den sie auf eine mitreißende Expedition zu unterirdischen Ausgrabungen begleiten. Als der Forscher plötzlich verschwindet, sind die Parkbesucher gefragt und treten an zu einer nervenaufreibenden Rettungsaktion. „Wir kombinieren 4-D-Effekte und eine 360-Grad-Leinwand. Im sogenannten ‚Immersive Tunnel’ verschwinden die Grenzen zwischen Fakt und Fiktion, sodass die Besucher das Gefühl haben, mittendrin zu sein und das Abenteuer mit allen Sinnen zu erleben“, erklärt Wouter Dekkers. Die zentralen Elemente stellen zwei Expeditionsbusse zum Transport von jeweils 30 Besuchern und die ellipsenförmige, 23 Meter lange Leinwand dar, auf der Special Effects „Made in Hollywood“ für perfekte Illusionen sorgen und den Blutdruck in die Höhe schnellen lassen. Verantwortlich für die kreative Konzeption, die speziell für Movie Park Germany entwickelt wurde und in Bottrop ihre Weltpremiere erlebt, zeichnet die international führende Filmfirma RIVA Digital aus Kalifornien. Deren Mitarbeiter animierten bereits Blockbuster, wie „Fluch der Karibik“ oder „Jumanji“.

In Bottrop laufen derzeit die Bauarbeiten in den ehemaligen, rund 2.500 Quadratmeter großen, Movie Magic-Hallen, unweit des Haupteingangs, auf Hochtouren. Aktuell sind örtliche Tiefbauer und Elektriker damit beschäftigt, die Schächte zu bearbeiten. „Spätestens ab März wird es bunt auf der Baustelle“, berichtet Dekkers. Denn dann werden die Einzelprojekte des internationalen Teams, das seit Sommer 2013 mit den Planungen beschäftigt ist, in Kirchhellen zu einem großen Ganzen montiert. „Wir haben bereits im letzten Jahr einen Millionenbetrag in unsere Kinderfahrschule ‚Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – License to drive’ investiert und sind überzeugt, dass auch unser neuestes Abenteuer sowohl die kleinen, als auch die großen Movie Park-Besucher in Begeisterung versetzen wird“, so Geschäftsführer Dekkers.

So is this on a full circuit track and will park in one of more of these "tunnels" and then continue on its way? Similar to how Spiderman Works at Islands of Adventure?

"We have millions in our children's driving school, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles last year - 'invested License to drive and are convinced that our latest adventure both the small, is as well as the large movie park visitors put in enthusiasm," says CEO Dekkers.

This seems very interesting, can't wait for my first visit to this park! (Hopefully the new coaster will have arrived by then also).

The Megalite is *the* roller coaster of the world! (after finally riding Expedition Geforce I'll admit it was pretty awesome as well!)

Are there any really good pictures of Cop Car Chase out there? I never got a chance to ride it when I lived in Germany cause I was too young (and scared).
