    To be fair, it looks like they're showing both types in two different plans. The 'blue' plans show a normal branch, the 'red' plans show turntables.

    Probably still under review, unless we can definitively date both of the images?

    I think it's more likely to have turntables than a traditional transfer track. Gerstlauer are known for making those, especially on their Eurofighters.

    Well the station looks to be perfectly perpendicular to the centre of the transfer track, meaning that the following turn is that tight the trains wont be able to navigate it. Also I'd assume the actual blueprint is more accurate than an NL2 rendering. I don't play NL2 much, but I'm not aware of any turntable transfer section in the game.

    At 0:53

    At 0:47

    At 0:15

    Literally before the lift hill of about 90% of all Eurofighters.

    Ah, in to the storage sheds! I thought you meant as part of the normal track.

    It'll be interesting to see if they do go down that route - probably a few challenges to overcome to make it work as part of the normal track.

    I wouldn't say they're 'known' for making them, just that some of their Eurofighters seem to have them..? Out of the 23 Eurofighters in the world, 8 definitely do not have that turntable and I'm, not sure about Tikabisha and the new Nickelodeon one. So at least 35% of them just don't have it.

    This would be the first triple-launch to have it.

    Also literally no one gives a :emoji_zipper_mouth: about whether they have turntables on the transfer track they are not ‘known for them’

    As far as I'm aware this would be the World's First coaster to feature a turntable as part of the ride, excluding turntable station loading systems (eg Pulsar) and maintenance sidings.

    No, you’re the dumb one.

    And just because I said a naughty word doesn’t make it ‘agressive’ calm down.

    Also nice to see you have no further arguments on the matter.

    A lot of the Mack water coasters have them, as does Scooby Doo in Australia and the Revenge of the Mummy’s.

    Haha whoops I have been on several of those Mack water coasters, I guess I forgot that they were technically coasters.
    As for the others, I'm a little surprised that rcdb doesn't list the turntables as an element!
    Still, this ride layout will be pretty unique and looks good fun.

    They're turntables. The reason they look like this is because the render was made using NL2 which does not have turntables in the game, but does have sliding transfers.

    Because I can't be bothered. It means nothing to me and I have better things to do with my life.

    Well he did provoke a response, just as you have done right now. I honestly don't know why I post on here sometimes.

    Small update: I went to Bobbejaanland today and I've indicated where the fences are (red lines). The blue dots is the erea which is enclosed by the fences.

    It's an old aerial picture because I couldn't find any recent one. So the green area is where the simulator "The Forbidden Caves" is.

    I expect this site likely to evolve as quickly as with Toverland. I'm curious to see how this project develops in terms of a themed area, like how fluently it will fit to Adventure Valley and the very close Naga Bay. Snapchat-1908011228.jpg
