If it’s anything to go by, the Theme Park Tourist article says that it’s “a dark ride for adventure lovers of all ages”. Which to me would suggest a dark ride as opposed to a coaster.

Head Merlin creative John Burton is the creative lead for this project, and rather intriguingly, he’s referred to it as “[their] largest dark ride to date”:
If he’s referring to Merlin’s largest dark ride to date, then could this top DBGT at Thorpe in budget, scale or both?

I’m also quite intrigued to see what ride system this is using; if it’s anything to go by, the promo image shows a car seating 5 people (so possibly a 6-seater?)…

Moved to Other Ride Construction, since this subforum could use some more activity.

This looks............non interactive!! (I suppose GG is as well) but colour me intrigued, I love a dark ride, Although I'm not holding my expectations too high being Merlin, Im expecting lots of screens!

Looks like it may well be one of these contraptions. Especially as Merlin have been working closely with Garmendale over the past few years.

I’d be surprised if it was Garmendale, personally. I’m not ruling them out, as they look to have some good stuff on offer, but it’s worth noting that Gangsta Granny was a low investment year for Towers, while this is a much larger-scale ride, and almost definitely a major investment year for Gardaland, so the budget will almost definitely be higher.

As I say, though, I’m not ruling them out; I’m open to surprises!
EDIT: Now you mention it, that car does look very similar to the one in the promo image. Sorry…
