I'm pretty sure he's talking about the same one?
The reason others and myself think it looks like an Immelmann is because well the support set is pretty much the same/similar.
I haven't seen this picture before. Do you have an unedited/not drawn on version?
I'm not sure what that support is meant for, but it's definitly not for the immelman. Every immelman I've seen has a same sort of support in the top of the inversion.The reason others and myself think it looks like an Immelmann is because well the support set is pretty much the same/similar.
However your theory is possible I guess. But I have my doubts because from the street view it doesn't look like it would match up very well. The angled support seems to be higher than the track's angle of descent.
Also then where would the launch lead to instead? Especially to connect up with that curve down through the towers at Wuze? It can't be directly behind as the roof of the tunnel there doesn't have any unused supports or footers.
The first curved pieces of the launch were installed, as you can see in this video: F.L.Y Phantasialand
Here's a screenshot showing the launch:

I think from the shape of the curve it seems obvious that this won't be an Immelmann.
No immelman it can't be.
I like the fact that Mr.vekoma aka mrrc spotted the track and that it is now already installed. That is quick!
But from what I heard, it will open not open before summer next year
Phl is not rushing this, they have no deadline, and we have to be very patient. Too patient i.mo.
Yeah, I have no idea what you're on about. I'm saying I'd like that hill to crest and then dive into a half loop, like the first half of a pretzel loop. I think the post above gets what I'm saying.How? You‘re in flying, not in lying position. For a pretzel loop it‘ d first have to do a half loop. But I doubt we‘ll see a pretzel loop. The coaster seems to stay in flying. There is nothing in lying and it makes sense since the name F.L.Y. implies it should feel like flying.
... Well, they can be? Yeah, the track doesn't touch the ground, but it doesn't make a different where the entry comes from. It's a pretzel loop.
Playing a trick on you I'm afraid. I like the idea, and would love to see it, but I think it's too small (as said in the previous post). I'm not sure how tall this will be, but I'm hoping it can have some decent height directly after the launch with the help of those sound proof walls near Wuze Town.Could this be possible or is the perspective playing a trick on me?
