    Let the guessing commence.
    My guess is for the wing coaster at Huayi Brothers in China.

    There's a greenish piece there too. Possibly for the wanda wuxi wing coaster also in China?

    What? Rollercoaster track spotted at the manufacturing plant of rollercoasters? Stop the :emoji_zipper_mouth: press.

    I might be inclined to think it's actually just the primer and the red paint hasn't been applied yet. It just doesn't look like a full enough colour. Although the picture isn't great...

    I love that so many THINGS are being built in China. Hence why I'm still holding off a few year before visiting.

    ^I've been debating the same thing, but there's so already many parks to visit and coasters to ride that it's going to become too overwhelming if I hold off much longer.

    That concept artwork for that wing coaster looks absolutely epic. Looks like a larger X-Flight.

    Through a waterfall can't be for real though.

    If it is for the shuzhou ride it's going to make 3 parks worth visiting really close to each other. It's day tripable from shanghai but might be a push doing all 3 in a day.

    The issue with that is that China is HUGE though, and the number of parks these days is ridiculous. You'd never get all that you wanted done in one trip anyway - like you possibly could with somewhere like Japan - unless you've got over a month to play with, and that's being conservative. Factor in that a fair few of the newer parks are popping up in more isolated (for China at least) areas away from other parks that you could combine them with, and it becomes even more difficult.

    It's basically like the US; you'd never try and "do" the USA in one trip. You have to pick an area to focus on and see what you can manage in that area.

    Agreed with Gavin 100%.

    You could easily do the 'East Coast' (Shenzhen, Shanghai and Beijing) and make a significant trip out of it which won't necessarily have any more spite than any year you do a U.S. East Coast trip (well, if you wait for Disney).

    Jake and I could have said that in 2011 when we went and still be no closer to it slowing down, so keep putting it off and you'll wait forever.

    So this news came a little out of left field. The red track which I assumed to be heading to the new Huayi Brothers theme park in Shuzhou China. But an intrepid spy at Cedar Fair Roller Coaster Construction got a bit closer and took a photo of the labels on the track.

    It turns out this new wing coaster is heading to China but not the park we expected. This one is heading to Hot Go Park in Fushun in the North of China. The park is already home to Time Traveller an excellent looking terrain wooden coaster from M&V/The Gravity Group.

    They are also getting three new Vekoma coasters this year including a custom launched coaster so this park is certainly on the up.

    Hold up, they are back to printing the customer again on the barcodes? Cause the last track I saw there was for Flying over the Rainforest and its customer was X-Works.

    This should be VERY interesting if they went back to showing their customers again.

    yeah apparently so. It's been suggested its actually due to some minor law passed in the US recently.
    There is still that odd green track in the background. (turns out it is green not just unpainted) but apparently no label yet.

    The green could be related to tree line restrictions. SW8?

    Re: New red B&M track at the plant.

    They wouldn't build track for a ride that will not be built until 2017 so you can rule that idea out.

    Reviving a long dead topic but didnt want to start a new one for essentially the same thing. Perhaps this should just be renamed a B&M Track Plant topic since it happens a few times a year?

    There is new track at the B&M plant and always love a bit of speculation :p
    It is a rather lovely blue colour though
    [​IMG]
    Again it appears to be a new Wing Coaster
    [​IMG]
    Loads more pics here - http://www.wildgravitytravels.com/clermont-b-2-other-coasters-on-site/

    Theres still some Yukon Striker track on site and the yellow is Music Coaster track for Happy Valley Beijing.
    My first guess for the blue track would be the announced wing coaster for Happy Valley Nanjing but that is due to be a clone of the one at Chongqing and therefore should have an earlier letter than P for its layout designation. (Happy Valley Chongqing was WC-I or H i think)

    This suggests its a new layout of wing coaster. I have a few guesses based on concept art but thats all they are.

    Edit - think i just disproved the letter designation as layout and not just project. Damn. Hotgos wing Rider was WI-I and Huayi was WI-M and they are clones. oh well so maybe it IS for Happy Valley Nanjing.
