Finally they started. Took some time, but I'm happy. Good to see some chances to the plans, looking forward to follow this.

^Well they pay the expense of the past 2 coasters combined on this. This has to become the new crown jewel with that price tag. :p

No wonder they're locating it in "the very centre of the park."

With that price tag, they're making sure no one will miss it, LOL.

The show building looks lovely, by the way. And three layouts? :lover:

This looks like it will be perfect for the park. Their dark rides are just beautiful and I am sure this one will be the same.

This should be a great addition to the park's already stellar lineup! Can't wait to see footage of the ride it is completed!

They will get my money in 2018 along with a couple of nights lodging. This should be a great thing to check out.
