This prototype coaster will be the first to utilize the new Maurer X-car.
Opening is scheduled for end of September, but I am not sure if they will make it on time.
The ride has a vertical lift which will lead into a heartline roll at its highest point (46 meters) then it will execute another half roll and will continue in a vertical drop back into the station.
Thanks for posting the links. I am anxious to see pictures or video of this coaster in operation.
At IAAPA last year we got to test out the new X car restraints. I thought they were comfortable even while being held upside down in them. The only problem was my change went everywhere. =:^)

I think it is ugly as hell! Maurer Söhne could not deny that they are bridge-builders. What a hideous contraption...
Pictures of the event, empty cars circling the track, model of the planned modular extensions of the ride, and a video:
An onride Video (might be down occasionally):
I truly hope that this small park will really build all those extensions in the near future. It could be an interesting marketing ploy too: "Come and see how our coaster has grown!" *** Edited 10/18/2004 9:36:10 AM UTC by tricktrack***

...so how do you say it? Could you record a .wav? :)
