It is rumored that the piece of track that connects the old Python with the new one doesn't fit properly. I saw photos of them trying to "move" the first looping by pulling on it with chains. It will be interesting to see how they are going to solve this.

Interesting. I just assumed that they would retrack the whole thing, but it looks like most of the first drop will remain other than the top bit??

I actually didn't hear about this untill you mentioned it. But now I've seen imagery on this (I don't want to share because I can't find the original source.) But this shows how bad the situation really is, they removed a fair amount of the old track. It still hasn't been placed as what I've read that it still doesn't fit.
Still I see no cause for panic as they're one two track pieces away from reaching the lowest part of the helix and the ride which comes in line with the rest of the track being done this week.

If Efteling's trying to make me want their new plush toy(s), they're doing a good job.

Yea the track looks odd too, whos doing this retrack? Its not Vekoma so the only other manufacturer I can see doing this is Kumbak.
