^I think the theming will start appearing now that trackwork is completed. Just give them a few weeks.

Only six-wide? Finally, some realism in the RCT2 dive machine trains! :b It doesn't LOOK like the train extends off the side of the pic...

In reality, this does look like a good addition to Heide-Park's lineup. Just another reason for me to wish I could visit...

They did the same on Hydra at Dorney. The seat belt clips on Hydra are also hard plastic instead of foam pad topped.

Couple more picture

I'm still waiting to see a good shot of the back car to see any kind of scoop. This is clearly a middle/ front one as it has the walkway part attached to the back.

I'm sure their total cost included clearing out the old boat and lake that was there as well as the theming. I can't imagine that the ride itself cost more since it is significantly shorter, smaller trains, etc.

Parks usually have a habit of lumping EVERYTHING it costs for a ride into the total number, and that will include things like marketing, media day, announcement parties, etc....

Yeah, it also makes a great marketing ploy. "The most expensive ride..etc"

That said, it's nice to see merlin forking out the cash for a few themed B&Ms.

That would make more sense. It seems like this ride will be heavily themed, and while Griffon is themed, I wouldn't consider it "heavily themed", especially for a Busch park. Even the announcement day ceremonies for Krake looked pretty darn expensive.
