It appears that it will be in the shape of a racetrack. It won't go up like an Intamin Rocket Coaster does, instead it's going around a racetrack. The picture of the train is pretty nifty. Hopefully none of the themeing elements fall off ;).

And people said those rocket coasters were one trick ponies. ;)
I never thought I'd see the day when coaster enthusiasts are excited about a coaster with NO HILLS! So this'll have an exciting lunch...then what?
Maybe it's a snackacoaster - L-BLT-B...
What a boring concept! After the extreme launch the train will go straight and then right INTO A Brake that will slow it down to 100 km/h! That means they will reduce the speed more than 50% right after the launch.
The train will then pass a ascending curve and will go back for another 500 meters to the station. There will be no hills or s-curves or whatever!!!
If you want to ride it, i would suggest you go soon after opening, because the whole concept for this "park" is so half baked, that it will be most likely a big flop.
It just seems like this ride wouldn't do so well at Nurburgring, where the whole purpose is to drive at speeds dwarfing 135 mph.
I'm guessing that this is an attraction that will offer ordinary people the experience of what it's like in a race car - I don't think this is the first of many coasters to come.
I consider Disk-Os as coasters, though many do not. It's all subjective stuff. :)
Are there any artist renderings of the actual coaster track, or is it just like a straight-out oval, and nothing else (ie, no bunny hills or any elevation changes aside from 4-left handed banked turns)?
