That would be pretty cool but I can't see that happen with only 3280 feet of track.

The only way I can think of would be a non horizontal launch. Something like Hulk. That would definitely make this coaster pretty unique.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

^^Hmmm, sounds possible, but I doubt that...
It could actually be a Furius Baco type ride...
Well, it could be almost anything at this stage...

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

I'm pretty sure it will be something other than a 164-ft top hat, considering Storm Runner has a 150' top hat and a 75 mph launch.

It will certainly be entertaining to see this thing take shape. Much like Manta, the mystery behind the layout of this ride is adding a lot of intrigue for me.

A friend of mine is going to be at the park this weekend so hopefully I'll post an update next week.

Here's the update.

Bad news: there is no sign of construction going on at the moment. No ground work, no digging, no footers, no workers, no nothing. The rumors from the park is that they are planning to open the ride in June so there's no need to start the construction so soon.

I'm really sad to say this but we won't see anything interesting here for a while.

If it would totally ruin your trip then I would reccomend looking into re-planning it.

IMO, as a rule of thumb, if you know a park is getting a brand new attraction, don't schedule a trip before June, possibly even July.

If there is something we all should learn by just reading these forums over the years is that the chances of a new ride being up and running and "bug free" in the first couple months of the summer is usually pretty slim.

If you want the best chances of hitting a new ride, go later in the summer. Yeah, you may find larger crowds, but what is worse? Longer lines or the new ride closed?

^Yeah, I agree...
I had a nice plan of my visit in the may vacations, where there would be absolutely no crowds at the park. lol
Oh, well, I'll just go to Gardaland or something between the may holidays...
Maybe even Evropa Park if I'm lucky! :D

Mirabilandia is also not so good about opening new rides at the beginning of the season.

I think I'll do Europa Park too while waiting for this ride to open.
