    Thanks for sharing Dave. Did you get the chance to ride (if so, what's it like)?

    Good work Dave - did you get to ride it or was it mounted cameras only?
    Not desperately impressed by it though to be honest; backwards more interesting than forwards perhaps.
    S'pose its pretty unique for the region so sure that they don't care! :)

    Yes I did get to ride. It's pretty good. The forward fa ing seats are great for an amazing view over Yas island at the top and the rear facing seats fell more thrilling and the view straight down the spike is really cool

    Another question! :p How does it look from outside the park? Do you actually get a good distance above the main roof?

    How long do you think it will take for Walibi Belgium to get one of these?

    Sorry to bump this thread, but Mission Ferrari is finally opening in May 2018, apparently!

    About time, in my opinion! Wonder what took them so long?

    Nah, got to be a joke. This is just a very large and expensive statue.

    Here are a couple of snaps from this weekend, first the ride entrance:
    20180316_172502.jpg

    And here's the extremely well documented piece of visible track - there are now no shutters or curtains suggesting they may have been testing it, although there was no sign whatsoever of that during the day. You can see some greenery inside but that's about it.

    The park map still just says new ride coming soon. I'd love to know what the hold-up is!

    Other notes - I thought Turbo Track was a nice addition; extremely short but a decent thrill and quite different forwards and backwards. Flying Aces - wow what a ride; very intense but very smooth; a long ride but fun and unpredictable from the start to the end. Formula Rossa - I have ridden it before, still amazingly powerful on the launch but not actually particularly enjoyable after that!

    It might be perspective, but those openings look terribly small!

    I can't wait to see this testing, so we can finally find out that the :emoji_zipper_mouth: it actually is!
