    I feel that if that layout is in fact true, it's probably one of (if not THE) weaker wing rider layouts in existence.

    Fixed that for you. ;)

    Although I would defend Toverland's choice with the "horses for courses" defence. :p

    Surely they'd be fabricating the track in Switzerland for this, not Ohio?

    As far as Im aware - all jobs for B&M come out of the Batavia plant in Ohio.

    I know B&M's headquarters are in Switzerland, but isn't Clermont their only track manufacturing plant?

    Isn't that odd/unusual to see the manufacturer's name in a promotional video ? Not really a relevant information for most visitors.
    Was this video targeted toward enthousiasts?

    I guess after the making off video's the Efteling made with Baron 1989 a lot of people in the Netherlands assosiate B&M with quality rides.

    Yeah, I don't think it's too unusual - it's nice of them to give more background, it's more specific for people researching and googling it.

    That'd still just be enthusiasts. I doubt any members of the public, even those who watched the mak├Čng of Baron 1898, remember or care who B&M is.

    Nice it's been properly confirmed, but how about some concept art or some more information, Toverland?

    ^Yeah they've been quite open with the art for the new entrance but it'd be nice to see something for the new area with the B&M.

    For the ones who haven't seen that few pictures (that we have till now) of the expansion, here they are. You can see the layout of th wingcoaster on one of the pictures. This designs has been drawn years ago so it's possible that meanwhile some things might be changed.

    The entrance area is gonna look fab. No doubt about that. The new themed area with the wingcoaster is probably gonna look fab as well but when we talk about the layout of the wingcoaster itself, then I hope that it will be a forceful ride.

    Toverland is doing a press conference the 26th of september so more details about the new themed area and entrance should be revealed then.
    (clear confirmation in the tweet it'll be a B&M wing coaster and a Mack boat ride)
    They're also doing another press conference the day after that at the EAS trade show in Berlin
