Wait, is it just me or does it look like it starts to curve at the bottom of the drop?

Pilgrim's Plunge has the same supports.

Whay a mini-version, Pilgrim's Plunge is 135 ft. The one in Mirabilandia supposed to be 180 ft.

I gotta agree with the italians, this looks like parts for the elevator part, apparently the elevator structure will be red.

I will say that i spotted it the first time i saw the photo, i just thought it was coaster track at that moment.

@the last 5 posts: sometimes i think no one reads the posts before... it'`s really sure that it will be the same style of ride like pilgrims plunge! it is nearly 99% sure that it will be a ride like this with an elevator... the only point that is not sure is that after the first drop there is rumored from many reliable resources that there will be a short coaster part after the first drop!

so Known: Elevator and FirstDrop like PilgrimsPlunge and just short watercontact (no splash down) and the name:"the edge"
Rumored:Short coaster-part after the First Drop with final splashdown.

The only thing i wonder is how they will reallize a coaster track with this kind of track, if i saw it right the middle rail is the only rail that holds the trains on the track... enough for just a drop, but i wonder how they will do it on the coaster part. But maybe i am wrong and they use normal upstop wheels,or it will have just straight track with hills or it will really just be a little bit different copy of pilgrims plunge.

I think this are the only 3 options which are left to discuss.

Well, would you look at that?

My opinion's good for something after all.

180'! That's getting pretty insane, that means with Pilgrim's Plunge going 55 mph with a height of 135', this one will probably be going at speeds over 65 mph!

I'm pretty excited about this! Even if it will end up not having an amazing layout, that drop looks pretty interesting to me!

So we still don't know if it's just a taller Pilgrim's Plunge or if it's a Pilgrim's Plunge with some actual almost coaster section to it after the drop?
