Construction updates on DiVertical have been rather quiet lately but it's great to finally get to see the actual layout in the schematic drawing. This new style of water ride is rather intriguing.

Good to finally hear a target opening date. Hopefully it's ready in time for our stop on the Italy tour.... However knowing how Intamin is with water rides (or anything really) I won't hold my breath.
