Could be, but they didn't build anything else besides this, that's it as far as I know. Maybe it's for some sort of cable so they could easily pull the car if it gets stuck again, but this seems rather strange. Mirabilandia said on facebook that they are going to open it some time in June so I guess there won't be any more additions.
Does anyone know (or assume) why the brakes (wheels) are actually slowing down the train there? I think that the coaster was faster in the first season after mid-course brakes section, now (last season) it seemed that the train was slown down in the brake section. It wasn't fast even in the first year, there weren't any airtime on the last hill.

I was in the park last saturday and here are some detailed pictures of the additions to the Divertical. I guess it's a motor with a hook that can be used to pull the train if it gets stuck again. The rods on the other supports could be used to hold the wire (or whatever they will use to pull the train) depending where on the track the train gets stuck. Or they could be used for some kind of platform for the people to get down, but I'm not sure about that. Anyone have any other idea?
The section after the MCBR is what I'm talking about:

This is the motor:

And this is all that has been added (a motor and the blue thingies on the existing orange supports):

I made a short video with 60fps and slo-mo clips of some rides in Mirabilandia if you are interested to watch. It's nothing special, just some wheels turning, people screaming and wheels assembly turning in slo-mo, fun stuff if you are into rollerocasters :lmao: (watch in fHD 60fps for the full effect - coasters are awesome in 60fps)

I just swallowed a whole donkey!

I think you are right that the other blue things are so that the cable sort of follows the curve of the turn, otherwise if the car is a long way back from the motor the cable would be pulling it to the side rather than forwards. Love the slooooowww moooo :)

Hey Guys! Last week or so, I found this interview Parksmania did with the park's manager. He said that for 2016 they will be adding a new Western themed area with three new rides, an[url=null]d[/url] then in 2017 they will be spending over 8 million euros on a new large roller coaster. He just said it will be nothing like we've ever seen before.

The video is here (good luck understanding anything if you don't know Italian ;) ) :




Well... thoughts?
Oh well, I guess I won't be riding any coasters any time soon... Within the next 10 minutes anyways. :airtime: :airtimer:

So I guess my plans for a 2016 visit are of the table if a new coaster comes in 2017. :p
But it's good news this park is getting a new coaster, gets me more exited to go to this park one day.

^I acknowledge that, but I still think it's going to be something great. On a side note, what kind of flat ride costs 8 mln? :roll:
