Well due to my old girl playing up this weekend (my car, not my wife :P) I was unable to get to the park to complete the update I promised.
However a big thanks to @themeparkgirl on the Parkz.com.au forums for allowing me to use her photo to bring an update of the new Mack Hyper Coaster under construction at Movie World.
So far the speculation about length/height/name etc is still ongoing until the park makes the official announcement, but the consensuses is that it will be just over the 200ft mark, approx 4500ft long and may have up to 3 inversions similar to Flash in China.
The photos below show the area closest to the half way point of the ride, with the large Stengel Dive turn still around the 30m tall mark (to give you an idea of the height in the photos), into an inclined dive loop for the half way turn around. The track then comes back under itself, into a s-bend back over the track and to go under again. In photos late yesterday afternoon, it would also seem as this now leads into what could be a zero-g roll, although this should be completed by next weekend at the current speed of construction.

The only thing that the park as said is it is due to open in September 2017, so if your planning a trip down under around that time defiantly put Movie World on the list...
and now onto the update...

Wow, this looks amazing. Mack has been doing great stuff lately. They NEED to build more of their mega/launch/hyper coasters in the states. I love Manta, but we need more!

Mack has been on quite a tear lately. This new ride at Movie World looks great.

Wow. Didn't even know this was being built until just now. Looks like a really fun ride so far and I look forward to hearing new information about this ride soon.

That coaster looks amazing. I really wish that Mack could build a hyper coaster in the US

It really is coming along now, with more track added to show a new ejector air time "twist" hill.
This is under the large turn in the photos and is seeming to lead back to another track cross for more of that head chopping feeling.

There are two pieces of track in the car park that have lead to a lot of speculation of either a Zero-G Roll, or even a Heart-Line loop being installed. Given the location of the track numbers to those already installed we hope this should happen in the next week or two.

For those who have yet to visit the park, here is a arial view to show the total area and location of the ride.

Will have a full update on the weekend if not before...

Cheers
