    He's from 1993 I believe. Was able to talk to Camiel during EAS 18 and the Young Professionals event which he moderated. Very friendly and talented guy, definitely one to watch out for the future!

    He used to be very active on the NoLimits forums. Really talented young guy, he was heavily involved in Hyperion I think.

    Keep practicing NL2 guys!

    Possibly exciting news! Taken from Linnanmäki's official site: https://www.linnanmaki.fi/fi/laitteet/cinema-4d-ice-age-ihan-pahkinoissa
    It reads:
    Cinema 4D: Ice Age - Totally Nuts
    During the Carneval of light 11-21.10.2018 the Ice Age movie rests, and in the cinema we can even see Taiga-rollercoasters promotional video! The showings are non-stop and free of charge.

    Taiga POV confirmed? I'm going to see this myself of Saturday, am going to report if I see anything intresting!

    Good news! The Finnish tabloid "Seiska" has posted pictures of Taiga (Linnanmäki had a press-only showing earlier today). The pictures show that vertical construction has begun! Yay!
    As mentioned earlier by me, I will go to Linnanmäki on Saturday, from where I'll take more pictures. The next weekend, 20.10-21.10 is the last operating weekend for Linnanmäki. After that you cannot take pictures from the inside of the park until the park opens next Spring.

    I'm kind of confused about what is maintenance, what is launch and what is brakes. Does anyone have an idea?

    If you pause this official video from the park at just the right time you can see the brakes, maintenance, (station?) and first launch. Since this is the only time this part of the coaster is shown off (from an official source that is) this is what we have to hope on. 2018-10-11 (1).png
    Tl;dr, you hit the brakes, pass over the transfer track into a 180degree turn into (the station?). The first launch (shown off in the video mentioned earlier) is located then after the station, or even possibly in the station to get even more speed.

    Ah, so what I can gather is the track installed is the maintenance, the centre track is the brakes, and the far side with only supports is the launch.

    Yes, I believe you are correct. The black supports between the two blue track sections will be the brakes, and the far side is the launch. You can see that more of the launch supports are erected, but they lack the track. The supports that are the furthest back will the the first inversion probably.
    Really hyped for that turn into the station after the brakes, when you can see the public. Also the fact that the rumored trick-track will be up in the air, going over the station and brakes (those foundations without any supports) will look so sick from the main plaza!

    Update:
    Linnanmäki has released the official POV for Taiga! However, you can only see it at the park. I saw it yesterday, and it was beautiful! This fan-made POV is really close to the real deal! The only things that are different in the real one is that the second launch isn't as close to the station as the fan-made, and the fan-made one includes an extra airtime hump between the top-hat and the element after, which isn't present in the real one.
    The construction is also going well! they have added supports for the brake run and for the turn next to the station. The first launch has also got more track added.
    The station and launch (back), supprt for 180* turn into trick-track (middle), break run supports (middle) and maintenance track (front)

    The transfer track and turn into station:

    first launch and inversion supports (back), another support for the 180* turn into the trick-track element (middle), supports for the break-run (middle), maintenance track (front):

    Thanks for linking to that unofficial POV with a brief summary of the differences. I guess it may be some time until they release the official one, but I can't really remember seeing that one before (if I did, it's slipped my memory), so it's good to see it!

    Lol, That bird was placed in the theater where they showed the POV-video... I thought that would be a prop at the entrance. I would have never thought that it would be the train.
