New coaster simulation ?

I walked by this computer store the other day and they had a demo on one of the machines in the window, it included a recreation of Revolution at SFMM that looked very much like a NoLimits-Type realtime animation.
However, it was extremely detailed with quite realistic looking natural hills and trees and much better lighting and textures on the coaster geometry.
I wondered if anybody has an idea what software that might have been - I'm 100% sure it wasn't NoLimits, the recreation was much more realistic (it pretty much looked like an on-ride video at first).
Inside the store they new nothing about it, they said it was just a graphics card demo - so I'm pretty sure it wasn't one of Badnitrusses works.

Hyper Rails maybe?

Ultimate Ride? Maybe is was some kind of park animation, maybe it WAS a Badnitrus video.

I would bet it was Hyper Rails... that game was almost too detailed, but it was also too hard to use.

^That may be true but hyper rails doesn't feature the track type needed to do an accurate version of SFMM's revolution.

The closest hyper rails can come to that is the standard Arrow corkscrew track & the package art(on the package front) seems to show only X,Viper,Goliath & Riddler's Revenge.

I read on one of the gaming boards for RCT2 that there's a new game titled No Limits:Fairground due out & interestingly enough it'll be in retail far as I can remember NL was strictly an online purchase/download which is why I never bought it especially after trying the demo.
