    it is not the same video. The one I posted was just visitor footage.

    The park also tweeted a picture of the train

    Looks promising to me :) Astérix really put some decent efforts with the theming in the last few years.

    I'm going to need some Bougainvillea trained up the side of this to take it from "tacky Greek 2 star hotel" to "Santorini stock image"

    I'm looking forward to the little gags in the queue line, like the Paris Hilton one in the queue for Oz'Iris

    It seems that they've designed another funny queue that carries on the spirit of the Astérix comics. Nice!

    A little funny detail for non-French speakers: on the top-left picture you can see a "En grève" sign which means "On strike". Typical self-deprecation joke on our railway company which is infamous for, you know, its countless strikes.

    On the bottom-right image with the stands, there is a souvenir store called "Gare Mont Parnassos". Gare Montparnasse is one of the main Paris train station, home to some of the high-speed train connections. It is named after the Mount Parnassus which is... obviously located in Greece :p The circle is complete I guess ^^

    I feel a bit pedantic explaining jokes but maybe some might find it interesting x)

    No it's fab, thanks. Don't suppose you could do it for all the OzIris jokes, I'm sure there's some I've missed XD

    I believe this testing footage hasn't been posted here yet!



    I read that this is on full speed setting. Looks a bit sluggish on the backwards hill, though it must still ride good at the front.

    ^ Looking good.
    Happy to see that they've made some effort with the landscaping by the part running alongside the carpark.

    Looks great overall, but the slow crawl into the shed looks like it will take a lot of the thrill out... Still looking forward to riding it on the CF Live in July though!

    I find it really pretty :) The statue and the fountain adds a nice finishing touch.

    Is this how the building appears from within the park? The whole ride looks pretty great, but this building is a bit of a let-down. I assume it's mainly visible from the other side?
