Skyline Park have announced a new coaster for 2016!

It will be built by Maurer Söhne and it will be the "strongest" motorbike coaster in the world.

Here's a few features:

- Extreme acceleration like in Formula 1
- Maximum freedom for genuine motorcycle riding
- 100% traction all the way
- Airtime feeling in the camelbacks
- Some kind of interaction to control the speed

More info will be released in the spring.

Not really sure how it will look, but I remember this from IAAPA from MS:

^ That might be it. I remember reading a while ago about them getting a 'World's first' that will look like a roller coaster, but won't actually be one. Really intrigued by this, to be honest.

Why does this park need to buy a new cred the year after I went xD

^Because it's near my hometown where my brother and his family live. They know I try to fly over and visit him every year, so they get a new ride annually to keep me coming back. :wink:

So annoyed, I visited the park last year too, and this looks fab and pretty much unique isn't it? I suppose there's always reasons to go back now...it's just in the ARSE END OF NOWHERE :'(

It's an hour by car from Munich. Could have been worse, a lot worse (looking at you Powerland).

Well thank **** I sat in the van last year. :lol:

But yeah, what a spiteful thing to do given that there's almost nothing worth going back there for.
 
That is Maurer's "winged" design. The Motorbike coaster is seated above the tracks. Same seat design, just on top of the track.

Just translated that article and it seems they are testing it for a year with one train or something? Why would that be necessary?

^They're too cheap to buy two and wanted an excuse?

The park will have multiple cars and it has nothing to do with money. According to the article, they are testing it with single car operations this year before operating multiple car trains in 2017. The coaster can operate with single cars or trains and I think I would prefer a single car rather than a train for this type of coaster anyway.
I wonder what the cars look like now that they've changed the track to monorail style?

Looks like we're gearing up for a really adventurous layout.


More of the track has been placed and it looks like photographic film from movies
