    According to Looopings, MPG wants to build a 45 meter (148 ft.) tall coaster in 2017. They haven't revealed yet which coaster type or manufacurer. They are currently trying to get permission. The coaster would be build close to the entrance.

    Very curious if this will become a thing. Finally a proper reason to re-visit the park, aside from the amazing rapids <3

    Haven't this 45m tall coaster been planned every year since 2012?

    In other words, I believe it when I see it.

    ^ Exactly, pretty sure it was the permission that held them back as well.

    Yeah, I'm sceptical but they do have a new guy running the place now, maybe he'll fight harder to get permission?

    So re-reading the article it seems that they have gotten permission to build above the height limit of 18 meters, and TÜV has mentioned that the sound probably won't be a problem either. So I guess it depends on the budget now?

    45 metres? The first thing that dropped into my mind is the Maurer Sky Loops. They are all 46.2 metres tall (close enough), within the price range of medium-small parks (Ukko cost Linnanmäki 4 million Euros), and unfortunately quite uninteresting.

    I could be wrong, though, as we only have a single stat to speculate off. We could in theory be getting anything between a Sky Loop, a Mega coaster, or a huge flyer like Manta. But my gut feeling says it will be something whose height is its most (or only) notable statistic, since that's the number they chose to market it with...

    Movie Park Germany is fab, shh :p

    I really hope this is a thing! They do need a good coaster, Bandit is meh, MPXpress is shocking, 3 kiddie coasters, and then Van Helsing which is quite fab to be fair but it's hardly substantial. I'll be keeping an eye on this, I hope it becomes a reality!

    When I went a few years ago, I was talking to a park rep about this and it was canned as its parent company pulled the budget from it to invest into another park.

    It's average at best... What is there that makes it fab? There are just a bunch of unconnected areas that feel really empty... Some of the rides are fab, but the park as a whole isn't really... At least they've spared me a ride on the SLC and I hope this gets built, so the sole reason to re-visit for me won't be getting the damned MP Xpress...

    My money is on a B&M. Either a custom wing coaster, flyer or mini dive machine which would be excellent for the park. If its a skyloop or one of those Premier things then that's just not good enough to lift the park out of mediocrity IMHO.

    Looks good for the time being. I need to see the full layout/POV, though. Looks to me like a Storm-esque ride, with a lift hill.

    Great announcement and a good location too, will dominate the entrance plaza. Another Mack as well... Brill !! :)

    Someone needs to drag their ass to the nearest photography lesson. This is unacceptable.
    A much better outcome than most were anticipating. More happy news.

    Found this on Loopings.nl.

    [​IMG]

    It appears to be a shuttle coaster of some kind - possible Mack's version of one of the new Intamin ones?

    Is it a shuttle coaster though? Looking closely, it seems to be a full circuit launch coaster with a relatively short layout. Yay for Mack though, and finally a good coaster in MPG (hopefully).

    Is that a return of the Flying Snake Dive?

    Look at the back spike which is behind the 'Flying Snake Dive' like element, that's why I think it's a shuttle coaster - it closely resembles the Intamin Inverted Shuttle type coasters.

    I see it now. It seems like it could have a similar approach to a Premier Sky Rocket. Launch towards the top hat, roll back, hit the spike, re-launch and then finishing the circuit.
