Is it me or is that similar to the Galactica poster with the cheesy headset + weird track, and instead of the portal is now a dreamcatcher.

It is.

I've never been on Magic Mountain but it looks quite rough. Nothing worse than VR on a rough coaster :(

I went on Magic Mountain last August and it wasn't that rough at all to be honest. The promotional poster is very similar to Galactica, but this time they can get away with it. It's actually a Vekoma.

The promotional photo is basically just a copy and paste. I'd guess it must have worked with Galactica to be recycled.

It's different people, different cars, and a different portal. They've certainly gone for similar marketing, but not copy and paste

We need to remember the ride installed vest restraints in the 2015 season so it has less head banging

The new trains with the new restraints came in 2009.
Anyway the ride isn't rough. It isn't b&m but it is an ok ride.

We have some a new concept image of Shaman!

Image

Also, there's one of the dreamcatcher in a bit more depth: only version of it though was in this promotional image.

Image

There's also a website with information on the new attraction. I must say, I think the logo looks pretty nice on the VR headsets - it'll be interesting to see if they're in a jacket like on Galactica.

Ortrobuco Tour is getting a repaint! Link is here (on Facebook so I cannot get the picture by itself, rather than the website). https://m.facebook.com/GardalandParkFanPage/photos/pcb.1414029425304794/1414029038638166/?type=3&source=48

So shaman has had quite a few pictures released of a 'celebrity' (never heard of him) riding. In the first picture, you can see the staff uniforms, headsets and the train which all look rather nice. Image In this picture you can see the headsets again, the trains from the side and the Dreamcatcher element at the end of the ride. Image Finally, from what I have heard this will be a free experience with wearing the headsets being an option and of course, cleaning things will be used in the headset! :)

Considering you live in the U.K. and Gardaland is Italian I'm not surprised you've not heard of him! ;)

He's a professional Italian MotoGP rider who competes in the MotoGP World Championship for Suzuki.

But if you proceed to click on the icon to find out more, it is still called 'Oblivion The Black Hole'. I think they have just shortened the name for the map so they could fit it on :P

Ok, so if your saying it's common to be called oblivion, then why did you make a fuss over the fact the map just says oblivion?
