Looking great :D Anyone know how often the webcam updates ? Also will it be recieving the wheel covers as some inverters dont have them on. If they do i can see them being highly themed coming from Phantasialand lol :)

Of course it will be recieving wheel covers, all B&M inverters come with them but they usually test with them off first

Not sure if this is the 'site Williscroft had in mind but here's an inverter without wheel covers, It's at a German travelling Fair and is supposedly rougher than Nemmy!

I've been keeping my eye on this topic since the start and Black Mamba's looking like a fantastic coaster and I can't wait to ride it if I ever get the opportunity to, never been to Phantasialand but from pics I've seen, it looks like an very well themed park.

I've been told it's only updated once a day.

That's Eurostar and it's built by Intamin, not B&M

I also kept refreshing the picture last night. I was thinking there couldn't be that much of a time diference for it to be light

Wow, now if B&M manage to make that forceless, I'll be amazed. it is a shame however that it has the usual inverter opening sequence but with a slightly different drop. I think that the video makes this more clear

Whatever they're building around that Immelman (i guess it will be a mountain or something) it looks crazy.

I love the colour of the trains. The black and light brown works really well. All the groundwork seems to be coming along nicely, the whole site is beginning to take shape and you can imagine how the finished product will look. This ride is going to be incredibly themed, i really do think that nemesis has finally met her match!

Well there's one 'problem': Nemesis is all made of natural rocks etc, and the mamba is made of fake rocks (if you can call it a 'problem')
