Turbo Track POV

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=biscwXQ6GPY&t=0s

Themeparkreview have got an onride pov now on their channel. In my opinion, it looks just "Meh", but I'm guessing its better backwards.

Turbo Track opens on the 29th March

I hate to be negative but this is a huge disappointment. The airtime hill achieves very little because when it travels near it, the speed is awfully low. The ride vehicles look bizzare. Really the only nice bit is the twisted climb but the rest is just weird and meh

I have to agree. This looks so boring from the video. It really does look very slow. Its a shame as it looked quite funky and a bit different.

Definitely need two goes on it at a minimum.

Even an impulse coaster is a longer ride.

During my time at the park today I stopped by to check the progress of Mission: Ferrari, while I was walking around taking pics, a construction gate was open, so I grabbed a sneaky pic:

Image

This is the 'tilt-a-drop' feature of the ride and judging by how the inside looked, I'd say it won't open until at least late 2017/early 2018.

As for the outside section, nothing new.

A quick update from Mission: Ferrari!

Image
So the lights in the main showroom where on, so you can see what looks like where the on ride photos will be taken, as well as some theming of road signs for Italian landmarks.

Image
I am guessing that this is a 360* screen

Image
Outside the rides entrance we have what I assume is a 'Hover-Ferrari'

Image
As well as some sci-fi looking doors.

Image
Finally an opened construction gate allowed me to grab this.

I also filmed a vlog from the park, where I talk more about the upcoming coaster:

From what I'm told by friends from the park, Mission Ferrari is having a few tweaking issues that they need to iron out (apparently they have been having rollback problems). The original opening was this summer, but its apparently being delayed to at least October. Shame, but hopefully it'll be great!

Also here's the entrance:
