How steep is this drop going to be, on par with Millennium Force or steeper?

Those trees seem to be in the way of the first drop.

I think steeper, there was a rumor that the drop would hit 90 degrees for a split second.
If you look carefully, there are footers forming a 'L' Shape with the lift hill ones as in this photo; http://www.expedition-ge-force.de/12.jpg
Obviously if it was gonna be a straight drop, the trees would've been cleared out ages ago. The drop will be making a quarter roll to the right! As you can just make it out in this photo; http://www.expedition-ge-force.de/22.jpg
No surprise here as Intamin pulled off their Impulse coasters!
That turn over the lagoon looks awesome, love the scenery. IMO, a coaster threading over & through trees, ponds, bush etc is much more exciting than one on its own on a parking lot!

Very observant, mr. God, you can actually already see the twist, or at least part of it. First Drop has confirmed it will have a completely vertical first drop, and now it looks like it will be twisting as well! Just imagine being whipped over that in the backseat!
This will be the smallest of Intamin's megacoasters, at just over 200' tall and 3947' length. Designed by Werner Stengel, we can expect big turns(overbanks?) and excessively gradual floater hills. With Mack's hyper in Europa Park, and Colossos in Heide, Germany is the place to be this year in Europe!

I see what you mean now and that's one sick first drop. That's why I picked my Coasterbuzz name.

By looking at the lift hill pieces I have noticed that they are like MF. I am 99.99% sure that this thing is going to use an elevator lift system.

Is there any doubt that this company is the leader in ride innovations. Their progessive simply stuns me.

Drachen Fire, Will it be swimming with the fishies?

That turn looks wicked. It will be awsome going on that. The drop looks really cool so far too. I wish I had the money to go to Germany.
