More has been posted on Walibi Holland's snapchat showing the lift hill in place with double catwalks (A first for MACK), leading some to believe that this will be an Intamin-style (Think Skyrush) wing coaster, however two friends of mine (Coaster-Lab and another friend who's just begun working with MACK) have assured people that this won't be that. Wonder what it could be? :-k

Wow. A surveillance theme and similar colours to the 14 looper. It's basic das smiler. I don't know if I'm impressed or not.

EDIT: I went on the website and did the mental check. Nothing happened. Just want to make sure that by doing this, you've not bought tickets to go there, have I? Please do get back

More weirdness unfolds, as an inverted top hat has been made similar to the 'Banana roll' element that Gerstlauer used on Takabisha.

Phwoar! That drop will kick behind. Does this coaster run on single cars or full trains??

Another image has been linked to me showing that the top hat element is in fact non-inverted, and features what appears might have a significant pop of airtime at the top instead.

The park's latest snapchats suggest that the ride will be called 'Lost Gravity'.

Goes hand in hand quite nicely with this unlisted video posted to YouTube by Walibi Holland showing some very... messed up stuff. I'll let you see for yourself :)

That video actually made me laugh. I do like the look of this coaster. It will be interesting to see what it actually looks like when it is complete.

Walibi have now uploaded the Snapchat clips as a full video to Youtube, confirming that the ride will be called Lost Gravity.

So Tobi, the person responsible for the incredible NoLimits 2 visualisation of Taron, has also begun working on this ride too, and has revealed the entire first part of the ride up to what I can assume is an MCBR.

I can see this as being a spinning coaster

A dive-loop type inversion has now gone up, along with a MCBR and some other sections of track. The following photos and more can be found on Themepark.nl Forum.

The unbanked turn into the MCBR makes it seem increasingly likely that this will be a spinning coaster, in my opinion.

This video released by Walibi confirms that Lost Gravity will open on 24th March at 1.30pm.

Additionally, the park have released another Snapchat teaser for the ride's Dive Drop.

Also, here are the latest visuals from from Tobi.

It's quickly shaping up to be something very similar to The Smiler! Compact twisted layout, abstract black/yellow/white colour scheme. I very much approve of this ride :D

It is believed that the last section of track has now been placed, that being the top of what looks to be a Zero-G Roll... More photos are available over on the themepark.nl forum.
