Hmmm...looks a little weak, right ??? I guess the tunnels and theming will add a lot to the ride experience...but the layout looks a little tame that way. But I have to say that I´m not shure if this recreation fits to the layout of GCI`s model...

This layout fits very well:

NL Recreation + Layout = fits to 99%... the model is also not perfect...

I'd say just because the aerial matches doesn't mean that the shaping does. The real ride is going to be a lot better - GCI shapes their elements to offer some unexpected pops and some turns that are more eventful than just a flat turn and nothing else.
1. Skyrush | 2. Maverick | 3. The Voyage | 4. El Toro | 5. Outlaw Run
6. Millennium Force | 7. I-305 | 8. Medusa: SC | 9. X2 | 10. Phoenix

Coasters: 290
Parks: 51

Those are some great pictures. Thanks for sharing that find!

This coaster really looks awesome. It has great interactions with it's neighboring attractions and it looks like the queue winds all around it which will allow some great views.

After this thing opens Europa Park might be my new #1 "I want to go there" park in the world, slightly edging out Fuji-Q, just kidding, but seriously, Europa looks amazing and this coaster looks like it might be one of GCI's best to date!

Can't wait for the TPR Europe trip after seeing those photos. Hopefully this coaster will convince some of the parks in the UK to get one. Still hoping for a terrain hugging woodie in the valley at Alton Towers similar to Boulder Dash. Unfortunately if it's not a "world's first" Merlin don't seem interested.

Roll on Europa park in 2012!
