ok people, the 'Immelmann' is completed.
Here is the first pic of it (though not the best quality).

Now what is your opinion. Is this an Immelmann or not? For me personaly it's not an Immelman. But hey, this looks MUCH better than an Immelmann IMO!

*edit*
Some pictures in better quality can be seen on onride.de

Looking great, thats what im loving about this coaster so much, the tightness of everything, i feel its going to make it a realy intense ride. I can't get over how close it is to the road. This will be to their advantage though as once people see it from the road i think they will be extremely tempted to take a trip there in the near furture. :) I was just wondering, when i went in 2003 i saw a few feilds arround the park and was wondering if these are owned by the park or if the current construction site is actualy the last area for major development. :?:

I think at least some of the fields are owned by PHL, though i don't know exactly!

RCDB created a new name for Black Mamba's element :lol:
'Jr. Immelmann'

Say hello to Black Mamba's Zero-G-Roll :)
It's believed that there are only three pieces of track left before the track is completed.

Looking good, are there any plans out of what the final ride will be like, so we know what inversion comes next kind of thing as from the pictures ive seen im still quite confussed as to were it gose next lol. Also im hoping the zero g roll is going to have something under it as i think they look a bit boaring without anything, like on Nemesis, it wouldnt look no were near as good if it didnt fly over the station. :)

Maybe this painting can give u an idea of what the layout will look like. :)
And below the Zero-G-Roll is a helix. You can see this pretty good in the 5th picture of the link i posted in my post before. :)

This ride could be the best Inverted coaster on the planet when it opens.

Colorado Adventure is supposed to amazing along with Winjas, so I'm expecting nothing less than the best from Phantasialand with Black Mamba.

Thanks for all the updates Diddi! It certainly makes life easier for me, as it is hard to understand anything being said on those forums! (i don't speak dutch!)

I really do think we have a contender to finally beat nemesis here. Even at the moment, without theming, it looks spectacular and i really really really can't wait to see the finished product!

It was originally scheduled to open April, but its allegedly running behind a bit at the moment, and they're citing a may/june opening. I doubt we'll see testing for another month-ish yet. There's shed loads of theming to do before it opens, and by Phantasialand's standard, there will be a lot of theming!
