    There is a temporary wall that blocks the view from Würmling Express.

    You can see the top of the two tallest supports (which now have track on them - the inversion).

    Boo! That's lame. Along with the park going after fansites that post pictures, I guess we're not going to have much idea about layout until much nearer opening

    As much as I hate the suspense and all, I'm actually kind of happy that they're so keen on keeping it under wraps. It's really making me excited, and I can't wait for this to open so I can head back and get the three new creds!

    I'm assuming though that FLY won't be indoors completely, despite the noise issues. I'm hoping for some buildings/well themed wall where that temporary one is now.

    I'm just hoping they changed the :emoji_zipper_mouth:ing restraints. Sure vekoma has a lot to be excited about right now, but if it's anything remotely like a Dutchman, gonna be super pissed.

    ^Considering how massive a change we've seen from Vekoma with their new looping coasters (a full overhaul of track and trains), I'm fairly sure they're going to have ditched the awful Dutchman restraints. If they've kept the style, I think (hope) they'll have been reworked massively.

    I adore the track/support colour combo.

    I personally expected more of a copper colour, but it still looks very steampunkish and kinda classy.

    Such a tease. I still can't picture how they can fit the longest flyer in there, and have any room for steampunk buildings and theming? Can't wait to see.

    Surprise! It's actually going to be themed around old fashioned 60's and 70's office buildings, so they're not adding any theming.

    Restraints look fairly similar to Lech Coaster and the like then. Has anybody experienced these new restraints? As a person who's over 6 foot, I'm a little nervous about my shoulders being compressed to dust.

    It may be a difference whether you are being pushed into the seat by them or if you are lying in them. I didn't try any Vekoma vests at all, but I think for a flying coaster tight restraints are not that uncomfortable like they are on sitdown coasters.

    Well, I'm 5ft 3... but I've tried new Vekoma restraints on Lech, F1 and Hyperspace Mountain Paris. They were a little unconvenient at first, but I got used to them by 3 or 4 laps and didn't feel they were too restrictive to my sense of freedom on the ride. Except for the Hyperspace Mountain ones, those felt really heavy!

    Those leg things look f*cked up from this angle. Is there meant to be more to those?

    Guess I can't complain about it not being lap bar for once.
    Or can I...

    You can't complain at all until you've been on it :p Sometimes it feels better than it looks like.
