    That is great to hear.
    This is one of those parks I've been in love with for some time, but haven't actually visited yet. The whole concept and execution looks top notch.
    Really hoping to get out there soon.

    I'm exactly the same. In terms of a zoo and wildlife experience they're certainly in a league of there own - the idea to put their Bactrian Camels in with the derailed trains was genius. Thank you Jora.

    I went back today and took a few pictures.
    As you can see they're building some buildings/tunnels through which the coaster will go.
    The spikes are also at full height now.

    That's some pretty nice banking on these corners. Should have quite a bit of speed, by the looks of things!

    Looking at the concept art in the start post, it seems they're rally sticking to it, since it shows the same buildings that are now being built.

    So the park are calling this ride "Tweestryd".
    And here's an image of the train, so the ride has started testing:-

    That train looks good! Reminds me a bit of Raik.
    When you look closely you can see the train has new restraints! :D

    Looks like 7 rows to me.

    If you zoom in to the back of the train, you can see that there aren't any more rows once the station wall obstructs the view.

    EDIT: Here's a quick photoshop job -

    So the trains are only 7 rows? That's smaller than any train on any family boomerang...

    Really nice trains! They're on the shorter side, but the dueling aspect will certainly help with capacity. Does anyone knows how busy is Wildlands Zoo?

    Having two separate trains allows for a smaller number of rows on each one. The more rows you have, the more maintenance is required so shortening the trains makes a lot of sense.

    I doubt it gets very busy, but the coaster itself has a combined throughput of 1,100 pph (550 pph per side).

    ^For some reason my quote button didn't work earlier (and Temleh had posted directly afterwards so I couldn't use "^") , so I thought I'd try again and delete my original post.
