    I love the meandering queueline, which will feel alot better once the tree's grow in. Kind of reminds me of Joris'.

    This looks to be one of the best layouts of any RMC in the world tbh. It's got the inversion record, but certainly doesn't seem to be lacking in airtime hills. Nice and spread out with a good length too.

    Will the queue be long enough though? :p
    What is the expected throughput on this thing?

    RCDB says 900 pph. Enough for Walibi Holland.

    That queue line does look incredibly short! It
    Will be interesting to see how this ride effects the parks attendance.

    Seeing it from that Ariel view has got me really excited, I didn’t realise how many elements this ride really has!

    If you look at the old aerial picture, they've added an extra chunk onto the old Robin Hood queue. Hopefully it's a big enough chunk, but it looks like there's plenty of room for overflow on bus days.

    I know it's such a whiny enthusiast complaint, but I kinda wish the DIC went all the way over the top and carried on rotating round to the left, instead of stopping at 90 degrees and rotating back the other way

    No, I wouldn't say that's too whiny. The cutback inversions on RMCs are very hit and miss. Some are good (Outlaw Run), but others are a bit poop (Steel Vengeance). I'm hoping for the former, of course.

    Part of me wishes that Walibi Holland would use Robin Hood’s infield as expansion space for a few more rides rather than cutting it off with a queue line.

    Apparently testing is starting incredibly soon, which states that the construction is due to end imminently.

    From Looopings.nl:
    Walibi Holland has celebrated a small party this afternoon. In the presence of park employees, construction workers and a few fans, the very last part of the new rollecoaster Untamed was placed. That happened with stirring music, flamethrowers and confetti.
    In a speech, Walibi director Mascha van Till thanked her staff, external suppliers and roller coaster manufacturer Rocky Mountain Construction (RMC). Then the last part of the track appeared. Three different flags were placed on it: the Dutch for Walibi, the American for RMC and the Frisian for project leader Wiebe Damstra.
    It is expected that it will take another two weeks for testing to take place. "I'd like to sacrifice myself and act as a test dummy," Van Till said. "Even if it'd be my last ride. I really can't wait." The attraction will be officially opened on Monday 1 July.

    Cute. They really care about this project. But I finally want to see some trains on this track.

    Somewhat related: it seems the fountains underneath the newly rethemed top spin have been given a bit of a boost..

    Seeing Topspins like this makes me grateful we have Talocan on this planet.
