DiVertical: Half Water Ride, Half Coaster

Mirabilanida, located in Italy, has released this preview video of DiVertical which finally gives away all of the ride's surprises.  First, the coaster portion of track, located after the first big drop and splash, is shown - basically a large figure either in shape.

Second, there are actually two splashes to the Intamin created DiVertical, after the coaster segment is another pass through the water.  It certainly looks like an interesting ride, but seems a bit confused as to whether it is a family type attraction or a thrill one.  It's quite tall and imposing, but the drop is super shallow, and the coaster portion is generally tame looking.

For some sort of recent photos that show off the coaster section going up, check out this link.
