I'm guessing the new land is going to be Turkey or Poland
I doubt it is going to be any of the smaller former Soviet countries.

The Blue Fire trains... with lap bars !

Mack did a good job for their first looper coaster trains. We can see that they look like a lot the Maurer Floorless trains. They also have that "bleachers" configuration like Intamin's ones.

For more informations, look at that Mack Rides pdf on page 16.

Eventually, EPfans.info did a great panorama shot of the current situation:

Those also remind me of Vertigo's lapbars. They where very comfortable and made an amazing open feeling to it.
So these should make the rider feel open and like they are flying along the track.

Thanks so much for those pictures =)

Those trains are awesome.

All coasters around the world should have trains with small restraints and so much freedom.

Agreed. Those trains are absolutely awesome. I liked the looks of this ride from the beginning, and now it's looked 1,000x better. I'm still really interested in how they will do the dark ride portion.
