Yes the train will be the same as MF. On the official park site they have some new pics including the 1st car of the train. http://www.holidaypark.de/indexset.html
And I wonder how that drop will feel, looks like a great coaster overall. And the pics are great too.:)

Wow! That drop is insane. I wish I could ride this one. Looks like Millenium Force is starting a new trend.

Martling, How did MF start this trend? MF wasn't the first Intamin Hyper, besides this new one is much smaller, but looks even better.

"X" marks the spot in 2001!

I think martling is referring to the style of track and the steepness of the first drop. And MF was Intamin's first GIGAcoaster, right.

Well all I know is that the drop is 203 feet vetical. I don't know how tall it stand or the length of the layout but it was said somewhere over the net I don't remember. As said by Jammin it's not at the same park as Colosso, same Country not the same park.

That coaster looks awsome! It looks like the drop is vertical, but it twists to the right! weird! All i know is that its a good year for Germany as Jammin J said!
