This thing looks like so much fun. And I couldn't agree more....that "timber" sound effect is fantastic.

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

According to RCDB, the ride will have the following elements (not in order):
- Vertical Chain Lift Hill
- Top Hat - Outside
- Dive Drop
- Zero-G Roll
- LSM Launch
- Switch Track

So I guess the special feature is the Switch Track? You can see it in the video multiple times. Here are some screenshots.

The best coaster is Boulder Dash

Looks good! It reminds me of a steel version of Switchback. Very interesting layout!

That looks like an awesome layout. Not only is the V2 style inverted spike cool, but I really like how the coaster has a conventional drop and a top hat.
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire, Outlaw Run
Top 5 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Expedition GeForce, Twisted Colossus, Iron Rattler, Fury 325

I love reading about these somewhat obscure parks making big additions like this and it seems Walibi Rhone Alpes is on a roll, pardon the pun, first with Timber last year and now this new ride for 2019.

This is one of the parks I've been intrigued with because there isn't much known about it and seems to be a decent mid-sized park that is finally getting some love.
