    Looks like it's about time to move this to Roller Coaster Construction, then. Thanks for already having the thread title sorted out!

    I can't make my mind up on this Taron clone. Half of me thinks that adding another iteration of such a fantastic coaster to the world is only a good thing. But I can't help but feel weird about it. I'm kinda hoping the theming sucks and it's nothing on Klugheim, just because Klugheim is so special.

    ^It’s Wanda, the themeing will not suck sorry.

    It probably won’t be Klugheim but suck it won’t.

    Aren't Wanda the company presently building a huge mountain around a B&M wing coaster? If so, my expectations are high; some of their park's genuinely look stunning!

    On another note, Taron seems like one of those coasters that would be so complicated to clone (what with all its terrain and everything) that I reckon it would almost be cheaper to build your own custom multi-launch coaster, even without the theming!

    Tbh as far as I can tell, Taron is pretty much on completely flat land. I think the only major groundwork they did for it was the trench for the second launch (not counting Raik's trench). I don't recall the tunnel after the first airtime hill being totally underground either, I think it just looks that way because the pathways in Klugheim are on so many different levels above ground.

    I thought someone said earlier in the topic that Taron was built on 11 different levels of terrain or something like that?

    As you can see, pretty flat except for the man-made trench and tunnel. With the "11 different levels" bit, I imagine they're referring to the pathways.
