    I bet Merlin have got some sort of new theming object with some sort of new gimmick to add to the ride.

    Why introduce a spelling error? The ride's name is in German.

    Can anybody explain the Statue of Liberty just randomly placed near Colossos? It just seems a bit out of place.

    It just to stand in the middle of the lake and they re-used it for the "Land der Vergessenen" / "Land of the Forgotten" which is supposed to lock dystopian. The theming is very incomplete, so the statue looks kind of lost there. But remember the poem "The New Colossus"? It kind of fits, haha.

    Thanks @CSLKennyNI! Not exactly surprising that it will likely stay Colossos, but I know some parks have done this sort of thing before when refurbishing a ride. For example, I think Black Hole at Alton Towers was called New Black Hole for the first year after refurbishment.

    So far no retracking work has actually taken place. The only construction work is on these new mystery foundations.

    Foundations are for the giant Wicker Man statue - they are all the rage these days! ;)

    Is this just supposed to be a simple retracking, or does anyone know if any layout iterations will occur?

    As far as I can remember from that initial video, they'll only retrack the existing layout with no additional iterations to it. However, I do think they'll be adding more theming to it to fit the new storyline.

    I'm just being petty but I don't think iteration is the right word here :)

    Why? Iterate is just another word for change/edit is it not?

    I think an iteration is more of a repetition of something, like a repeated version.
    Modifications would be my suggestion.
    Sorry I really am being banal tbh

    The World's first iterating layout coaster? Now that would be great

    But would that mean it did the same thing over and over or that it went round more than once?
    Either way, I think they'd struggle to make it a world's first. Personally, I'm hoping they make as few alterations as possible.

    Struggle with a world first, but a country first would be easy...

    Germany's first roller coaster to fuse wood and fire anyone?

    You are confusing the words iteration and alteration.

    I must say, after a year of being SBNO, the track has picked up some pretty nasty rust. Hopefully the park makes it all nice and pretty by the time they reopen!

    A clearer look at the new foundations (presumably for new theming) now that work on them has finished. Source: NiklasHP on CoasterFriends.de.

    It does look like it could be for some kind of theming structure or set piece.
