That looks like Maurer sohne track! Haha rather worrying, but looks like a good marketing campaign, shame it's another 2 years away

Blimey, that's mental! That first inversion is so bazaar. When I first heard of it this morning I didn't think much of it, but now, I think it's brilliant! :D

Excited, a better look of how it will play out against the real terrain will leave me speechless.

Best news is, its not far to travel :D

It almost doesn't look like it isn't humanly possible.

What a way to welcome an inverting woodie to Europe. The first inversion is ridiculously odd but I love the look of the whole ride. It looks like it is going to make use of terrain rather well, too which is always a bonus! And it's rather fascinating to see that it is going to go to a..zoo.

Chester Zoo next, anybody?

It still is! I don't live too far and in the summer it's always packed out. And we can only dream on...
