The video is really nice looking!
The coaster also looks really sick...
A 55m tophat, followed by a large airhill, and than some really small S-hills, and a completely insane, way too fast roll...
I hope it won't have to be taken out, like Maverick's...
EDIT: Btw, was this supposed to be the official announcement?
Didn't they say, they would announce it today?
and here's the same article translated into english:
We publish the press release issued by the park at TTG 2008 in Rimini:

A difficult season in terms of tourist visas to the holiday calendar is not particularly favorable, the weather pattern altalenante June (with no less than 10 days of rain, then redeemed by the extraordinary performance in July and August) and the shadow that the economic crisis the country has drawn over the summer. Thanks also to the Reset (10 million), the new attraction opened in 2008, the park has been able to meet public expectations, while staying competitive side.

RCDB says it's using LSMs and not hydraulics. That's sort of interesting.... I guess electromagnetic launches are making a triumphant return! I remember when everybody thought hydraulics were the new age of launch mechanisms...
It'll be neat to see how this turns out, and if Intamin will continue using LSMs or go back to hydraulics.
