Videos of the queue line and an on-ride POV have emerged, although apparently the theming is yet to be completely finished and it seems the mid-ride show sequence before the train is sent backwards is not functional yet.

Parc Asterix have announced that they will be getting a new rollercoaster for the 2021 season. The announcment, made on French TV Channel TF1, confirmed that the park is working on a LSM launch caster, similar in style to Taron and they are hoping to incorporate new elements that haven't been featured on previous LSM launch coasters. Full details are below:

In the French TV show “Sept à Huit” broadcast on May 20th, 2018 on TF1 (French TV channel), Frédéric Dubosc, development manager at Parc Astérix (France) has announced the park is currently working on a new LSM launch coaster which will open in 2021 ! The park has taken the example of Taron, Phantasialand’s 2016 addition designed by Intamin. We can also talk about the latest Intamin LSM Coasters like Soaring with Dragon or Red Force. In addition, for the moment, by 2021, 3 new Intamin LSM Coasters will have opened with this technology. So we hope for new elements on this new roller coaster!

This is certainly an exciting announcement from Parc Asterix - might have to look at a return trip for 2021!

I'm guessing this will be to compete with Disneyland Paris' Walt Disney Studios transformation which begins around 2020. 

Certainly exciting though! I wonder what these new elements they are talking about are...
