I thought we knew this was an Intamin for a while now? Might just be assuming that?
Anyway heres some small snapshots of the ride closer up where you can see some more detail. Interestingly the blueprints of the ride seem quite a bit different to the layout shown in FD. But as always with projects like this its likely the design changed multiple times during planning and these are from last year

The turnaround at the end of the world is believed to be outer banked

Twisted section of the ride after launch 3 looks a bit different here.

Aha thanks. Thought it might be. As expected first half is just Takibisha with a modified 2nd half. The block brake and Station on the spinner are labeled round the wrong way though. Whoops.

Sorry bit off topic but it's China news 😂😂

Can i have the hd complete blueprint Please?
 
Not really related to this coaster but why does Intamin sometimes use their old track design (this, Taron, Taiga, etc) and sometimes the new (Pantheon, Velocicoaster, Flying Aces, Hyperion, etc)? Are there advantages/disadvantages to the different track types? Is there any reason for Intamin to have two types of track in the same category?

Would really appreciate an answer.

I only know the answer for Taron’s case: although the new track type was available, Phantasialand specifically asked for the older triangular track because it looks more airy and light and they found it to suit Klugheim better.

That is for sure interesting, i would guess there are advantages and disadvantages with both and maybe intamin tells the customers that and then gives them the option
