In somewhat surprise news Tokyo Dome City in Japan will open what appears to be a new Gerstlauer Family Shuttle Coaster on the 23rd of March. The ride called Panic Coaster Back Daaan is completely enclosed with some special effects thrown in.

A second attraction called Gan Gun Battlers which appears to be a shooting motion theater of some kind is also opening on the same day.

Access to the maintenance bay out the back, or a strict "keeps you arms down" policy?

It would seem that Oakwood is installing a Zamperla Disk'O named Dizzy Disk for 2019 in place of the Clown Coaster that was removed last season.

SO update on this... Its not a Maurer Spike...
Maurer bid for this project and spent a lot of work on it. However the bid went to Golden Horse. So this will be a Golden Horse Spike Coaster.... did not see that coming.

So Maurer designed the layout, but Golden Horse built it? That's one odd mashup!
No Golden Horse did it all. There's no way Maurer would design the coaster and let GH build it.
Vekoma did kind of design half of Golden Horse's layouts though and Golden Horse have copied Maurer before with their spinning coasters. Granted none of them were as blatant or done as quickly as this but point still stands.

This is an entirely custom layout as compared to SLC or spinner clones.
