Looking more and more like it'll confirm my bet for this being a separate coaster (and also the previous image confirms this will have a chain lift as you can see the chain trough gap in a support near the start of the lift):

During this autumn, new groundwork has taken place next to Junker - the most intense coaster in Northern Europe. Footer rebar cages and new foundations look like Junker will have an equally intense rival ride. Our reader tips us saying it's worth 7M€.
Park Manager Mikko Kiviluoma...
The queues I've had with Taiga have been 20...60mins, depending which seat. Front row is obviously the longest wait because only 2 seats and the Oikopolku 'fast-pass' users usually pick the front row.
About eating, I really like Pub Weeruska right next to Linnanmäki :)
I rode Taiga today as well. It is now my #1.
In the backrow, every airtime is ejector, and every element is more intense than previous one, yet it remains smooth and very enjoyable (e.g. almost no lats). Theming is also very highly detailed, and the queue is very nice.
I can't wait to ride it...
