    I wonder if the red track is just for the outdoor section. If the whole ride has red track, then I would expect the inside to be well lit.

    Will it still use the same lift system?

    I thought there was? I know one of the stations will be outside though, maybe I'm getting confused...

    Where did you hear one of the stations will be outside? That's literally the first I've heard of that. One station will be around the back of the building (the VR one).

    It's outside the original building, but will still have its own building. I don't think the trains will actually leave the buildings, they will probably just go through a tunnel to get to the other building.
    I hope just parts of the ride are well lit, otherwise the ride would be completely ruined (I just want to mention that I already consider it ruined, but that would ruin it even harder).
    Update: I just read that this track will be placed where the light tunnel used to be. Perhaps it will be replaced with a similar effect.

    No, since they started, they announced it will be finished in Summer.

    Hopefully if it's light enough in there to see the colour of the track then there'll be lots of sets and details to see. Does anyone have any idea how they're actually going to theme a coaster to the Can-can?

    One of the main features of Eurosat was the darkness, if CCC is actually well lit and you see the tracks most of the time, that would show me once again that they did not understand what people liked about the old Eurosat.

    So Europa have just released this new video - a new attraction? is it just a retheme of their park miniature railway? - if so props to them for making this rather promo vid for it!

    The video doesn't work for me but since they actually are retheming their railroad-themed ride, you are probably talking about that one.
    Assuming the video doesn't work for others as well, I think chainedbanana meant to post this one:

    It's based on a popular German children's story, which I loved as a child as well.

    I love this. It may already have been covered, but does anyone know when this is likely to open? I'm heading to Europa the first week of June and would be gutted to miss it...

    I hope they incorporate the Robot that stood at Eurosat's entrance into the new ride somehow
