So the train must be pretty short then going by the size of that transfer track. Am guessing it will be 1 or 2 of the spinner cars that they tested on Blue Fire.

I'd say so. Would make sense given their recent tests on Blue Fire.

Still, I reckon MACK could do a 5 car train for more Blue Fire style rides. After all, if they can test 1 car on Blue Fire, why couldn't they do a whole train if the cars were more spaced out?

Tobi has upload a POV of their Lost Gravity track layout. I must say it really rips through the circuit!

Some aerial shots (perhaps MI7's got a Dutch cousin) of Lost Gravity, which has now begun to receive its theming - it seems Merlin have been outdone with the number of shipping containers that are already in place!

Walibi Holland have teased some plans for the train for Lost Gravity and it appears that against all speculation, that it is indeed a winged train!

Would seem Mack are referring to this ride type as 'BigDipper' - https://www.facebook.com/mackrides/post ... 4681968493

Is some quite odd theming isn't it? I like it though - it feels very Oblivion: The Black Hole-esque with the everyday things like cars warped and overturned by the gravity. Only thing that doesn't quite sit right twitch me is the entrance, I feel like the red would look more cohesive as a yellow to match the track :P I'm sure it'll all look great in the end though.

Here's a snippet of the ride's soundtrack. It's a somewhat unique one.

Indeed, I heard a snippet of this last month. I feel like this is another YouMeAtSix/THE SWARM jobby where the artist has made a separate song for the attraction, which differs from the one around the area. It will be interesting to see if this is implemented into the ride at all.

On Walibi Holland's snapchat they posted what seems like a snippet of the music video. It even contains floating cars!
