The latest images on the minisite show that more of the fence work has been completed, as well as the internal construction of the ride's shop.

Once again the minisite has been updated with more images. They show that more of the queue-line fencing is now up, as well as the safety net now attached to the immelmann and the paving, outside of the shop, which is a sort of plaza area.

The latest updates to the minisite aren't photos, instead there has been the announcement of themed rooms at the hotel and also VIP packages, including pre-season and ERT which come with a range of other perks.

From the latest image on the minisite, it appears that the exit from the station has doors.

Plenty of new images on the minisite, mainly of the logo around the ride area and around Germany as marketing.

So both Raptor (before) and now this (after), are better in every way, than The Swarm, all from Merlin - gotta love the UK! -.-

I would disagree with you there. What theme:theming would you say this coaster has and what theming does it include that you could see while riding the coaster that would add to the experience?

You have the bridge at the base of the first drop, the shop is also a piece of theming, there are the surrounding buildings on the panoramic curve and some stonework to create a near miss in the middle of the Pretzel loop. However, I must say that The Swarm is probably the best themed UK rollercoaster, even if the theme itself isn't all that original.

My point is a bridge and a few buildings is pretty boring theming. They may be near misses but are they particularly themed? Could you look at the bridge and know exactly what the rides theme was.
With The Swarms theming you could easily pick up there's been devastation and makes the ride 10x better. Take away a bridge and shop I wouldn't say it altered the experience that much.

I don't think the theming is pretty boring at all it has some near misses and an amazing track layout. Just because it is a wingrider doesn't mean it has to have hundreds of near misses like swarm or raptor. It has its own identity flight of the Demons.

As always, I bring more images from the minisite! Finishing touches are being added to the ride, such as the entrance side and test seat.

Well, IMO (I know I'm going to have people on my back about this) but I was loving the layout and the theme, but then we get this:/ the theming has been done ott at the very least, to much in one place. It slows down so much after the Immelmann, and the turn at the end looks rather violent. They missed the point, they have made a open styled roller coaster, and then put to much inappropriate theming onto it. 'Flight of the demons' sounds brilliant, layout is interesting and the theming idea is great. Theming items however 'calm down honey'. They haven't seemed to take into account the size of the area,height of the coaster and layout. And I'm not even going to start on track colour.
The best thing about it is the queue. Oh wait, that's cramped too.
I had such high hopes for this, it just seems a bit of a let down.
But then again, it just a POV so I'll wait and see an ariel before I change my mind.

As much as I want to disagree with this I can't, it's true. It looks great and the first airtime hill looks insane. It just seems to loose speed way to quickly. Making the rest of the ride slow inversions. The amount of near misses is really low. But maybe on the left side you get lower to the ground?

The one thing i really don't like is that park has 3/4 coaster with the same colours, WHITE & GREEN. I think if im honest the track should've been black or a grey like the swarm...

The area of Heide Park that the coaster resides is one of the most beautiful in Europe, so absolutely see why they have kept the colours sympathetic to the surroundings.
