    Well, the trains used for testing at the vekoma site were also black with maroon-colored seats, and since they also reused the track, that may have been part of the final design (with some extra theming added maybe) With trains supposedly there, trackwork done, hotel nearing (structural)...

    Those are the two "inversions": Back to the construction site, the hotel is getting its 4th floor at the moment: Also Vekoma is on site currently, working on finishing F.L.Y., like installing all the sensors and stuff: Source: Google Maps and Phantafriends

    They will be much longer, the stations (just the onload) length is about 28 meters.

    Thanks for the great image, @Gehirnfurz! You can clearly see that Hotel construction has started, with the first rooms already in place. Seems like the one on the right already has 2 full floors. (Images removed by admin on request of Phantasialand)

    Now that the track is closed we can finally move back to wall updates. The right part of the big wall is getting it's first layer of concrete: Also a brand new part of facade-framework has gone up over here: So expect a lot of exciting wall adventures in the next couple of weeks. :eek...

    Are you sure it's just pictures? Almost looks like a model of the new area. Damn you Phantasialand for making it hard to take pictures. ;) Source
