    Basically. Except for the fact that Vekoma doesn't actually own Energylandia.

    Yeah! I agree with @ATI! In my opinion, that actually looks far too twisty to be a water coaster!

    Are the supports painted brown, or rusty and not painted?

    I don't know about anyone else, but those supports look brown to me...

    This is really interesting - I do hope it's for the launched water coaster concept, it could be really great!

    Twistyness and color scheme reminds me of Powder Keg. Looks interesting.

    Maybe we're getting Vekoma's take on a family launcher a la FireChaser Express?

    Already exists.

    I also hope this is for a launched water coaster. Given Vekoma's recent work this could be really good.
    And the track looks more aesthetically pleasing than Mack or Intamin's models.

    The track definitely looks bigger than the track they've used on their previous rides so maybe it is for a boat.

    Wasn't it mentioned in @Coaster Hipster 's Vekoma interview that Vekoma were working on a new gen Boomerang. Could they be working on a Vekoma Boomerang and Mack Xtreme Spinner hybrid style ride?

    ^Maybe they could be working on a new-gen inverting boomerang even though this one specifically doesn't look to invert?
