Somewhere it was posted that they wanted to make an old-school wood one.

The flying turns is going to be the old-school one, orginally developed by Norman Bartlett and John Miller in the 1930's. The only issue they are facing is the trains. They're talking to PTC about recreating them, since PTC was the company that built the trains. Here's a drawing of what Knoebel's is aiming for:

If they are already teasing the new coaster than my guess is the all the train "hurdles" have been cleared.

I can't wait for this one!

Yay! I get another credit next year!

That's cool that they are bringing a classic coaster back to life.
