    I think they just plopped the old train bodies onto the new chassis.

    The guy running that site doesn't know any more than any of us. It's been a rumour on a few Disney forums and he's just taken it and made it a news post.

    Personally I can see it being true but don't take his article as 100% fact.

    ^Yeah. Screamscape claimed at the end of last year that GoG would be a Vekoma Spinner. I think what has happened here is, after mccr put online pictures of the spinning prototype they have jumped on the rumour. But it still is that: just a rumour.
    Sure until recently Disney fans were convinced that the F.L.Y. prototype was for GoG (even after Phantasialand announced it).

    However though I think this has a chance of being true. Will be interesting to see it develop.
    Do we know yet if the spinning on this is controlled (like Time Traveller) or free spinning (like Mauer spinners)?

    Testing has started, i noticed the coaches where 180 degrees on the chassis.(train was not covered with the orange tarp)
    Its exactly 365 days between now and the old test for F.L.Y.

    What we're all dying to know is whether or not all that concrete can be poured at once or if it needs to be done in different layers. Would they have saved money by doing it slowly? I'm looking forward to the 20 post discussion :-b
