Gardaland's New B&M Starting To Stand

© 2010 Gardaland

Italy's Gardaland has started vertical construction on their new prototype B&M roller coaster.  It's not much, but seen above is a section of the track that is in place.

The coaster will be called X-Raptor, or at least that's the rumored name I suppose.  The website for the ride doesn't really have name on it, but it does provide an interesting story about the happenings going on at the site of the ride.  There's some new photos of investigators trying to figure out what's going on.

Parksmania also has some recent photos.  These include more of the station area which includes track that's well below grade.  This ride should prove interesting to continue to watch being built!  The unique theming alone has my attention already, not to mention a new style of train from B&M.
