Here some pictures of a Dive-loop or Immelmann. Hard to tell which way you go through it this early. (Although I think Immelmann is more likely.)

Also some new footers will come under the lift hill.

Nice photos, that first half of the Immelman is pretty tall, this coaster will be larger than I expected. They will have quite the nice couple of B&Ms with Krake across the park.Hopefully the ride will have equally impressive theming.

I love donkeys more than me.

After our last winters were quite intense it's good to see they already go vertical.

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

The park is celebrating its 35th birthday today... and have now officially announced a Wing Coaster for 2014:

40 m tall
772 m long (2533 ft) (roughly the same as Raptor and Swarm)
100 kph (62 mph)
• 5 inversions
• 6 near-misses
• 3 minutes ride time


Oh, and you'll have to be over 10 years old and 1.40 m tall to ride. (4 ft 7)

More details on the website tomorrow:

I expected they announced the name too today. But I think they do that tonight and place it tomorrow on the site. (Just guessing here.)
It sounds like a interesting ride.

Found this one on coasterfriends.

This seems like a odd section of track when you look at the supports near it. I have 0 clues on how it continuous.

It already looks pretty amazing going through and around those buildings. Too bad these things look so great and ride kinda meh. Will be interesting to see the layout at least for the visuals.

This one is between them. The lay-out from above. Looks good.

A zonkey is a cross between a zebra and a donkey.

I really like the look of this ride. The way they are fitting it within the existing structures makes it looks like the ride will weave through some building with some close clearances. Hopefully, this ride will create that illusion of near-misses better than other wingriders. Looking forward to seeing how this ride will end up!

I just hope they'll make that one better than they did "Krake", which was a little too short and small (for a dive coaster) in my opinion.
At least the layout and the first construction pics look more promising. :D
