Damn that's a shame.

Never seen that image of the layout before - really nice. And makes me even more gutted that it's being pushed back a year..

Wait, they changed the layout? That layout is completely different to the one announced a while back, right?

Completely different is a big word, as all announced elements are still there, but indeed. This is not the layout from the video, but the layout that had been there before the video was shown. So in fact it's an earlier version of the layout

There's no wave turn thing either. There was one after the stall if I remember correctly, just a tiny one next to the ground.

I spent a good five minutes staring at that rendering yesterday and concluded that it's an off the shelf model. Apparently Intamin also offers an extended model as well. The Parc Asterix ride is a modified version of the layout to fit in that pocket of land back behind Trace du Hourra.

This model is one of the first version of the layout. Since there's no good quality official pictures of it we usually use this in France.

Also the info comes from a TV Documentary about the park (not an interesting documentary btw don't lose your time by watching it) which stated at the end that the new coaster will open in 2022, at first we were surprised but an admin of Coastersworld got the confirmation by a HIGHLY reliable source. We don't have the definitive why this is delayed but the forest around the coaster is probably the main reason + some minor administrative stuff.

Thank you for the extra info! Was wondering where the news was coming from.

Completely unrelated to the coaster, but I'm visiting Parc Asterix next Saturday. I've bought a pass rapidus and was wondering whether each single shot fastpass would be time slot restricted or whether I can ride the coasters in whichever order I want to?
