Since there isn't a turntable available in NoLimits2 , they just needed to connect the track switches with the station in NL2. That is my guess, at least.

It's a good guess. Obviously a quick model / render of the entire layout was all that was needed for planning purposes, you can see that they have a representative model for Sledge Hammer showing the clearance envelope of the swing. I'm sure we'll get better imagery later down the road when they announce the name / theme.

That's a pretty cool layout.

I wonder if they'll incorporate Sledgehammer into its theme. It's so close. Maybe the new coaster represents some sort of monster, with the giant sledgehammer attacking it.

Looks like a cool attraction for a park that needed another big ride! The layout is funky, but we'll see how it goes!

That has to be the most bizzare layout for a shuttle coaster ever! Look impressive as well! I am looking forward to the construction of the ride.

Liseberg called, and mentioned Loke vs Balder ;)

The layout looks short but solid! I like Infinity trains so it's good to see more of them being built.

I feel so stupid for not noticing that. It's clearly shown in the red lay-out that those would be turn table's. That's what you get for focusing on the blue 3D redering more then the details.

As for theming It would be nice to see Bobbejaanland to combine it with Sledgehammer for sure but the park isn't known for connecting rides with themes so I expect a brand new stand-alone theme for this coaster.

Made a quick NL2 coaster to see the POV view of this ride, looks promising.
